Burgess Meredith The Penguin Signed Batman Display

"Here comes the bride, all bagged and tied!"

 

This wonderful  display of The Penguin from the classic 1960s series Batman, has been signed by the legendary actor who played the villain - the late, great Burgress Meredith. Burgess is also well known for playing Mickey Goldmill, Rocky's trainer in the boxing films and for starring in Grumpy Old Men. The piece has been double matted using acid free materials to make a great homage to one of Gothams most feared villains!

 

For those unfamiliar with the Batman story, which first appeared in comic books in 1939, Batman is Bruce Wayne. Teenager Bruce Wayne was traumatized by witnessing his parent’s murder and vowed to avenge their deaths by bringing the criminals to justice. Bruce Wayne used his vast fortune to study criminology, to train his body to athletic perfection, and to acquire high tech vehicles and weapons to fight crime in his hometown of Gotham. One night Bruce Wayne was startled by a bat outside his window and decided to dress himself as a “bat man” to strike fear in the “cowardly and superstitious” hearts of criminals. From that moment forward, Bruce Wayne became “Batman” in his altered state.


Bob Kane, the creator, introduced Batman’s young sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder into comics in 1940 to give Batman someone to talk to. Together, Batman and Robin hit new highs in popularity ratings. The live-action “Batman” show was aired by ABC Network in 1966. At the time, Batman was third in comic book popularity, behind Superman and Dick Tracy. Since the latter were not available, ABC bought the television rights to Batman. ABC spent huge sums of money producing the show. One report quotes $800,000 to build the Batcave set alone. Unfortunately, the show went over budget by over a million dollars a year and ABC did not realize any profit during the original production of Batman. After three seasons and 120 episodes, ABC ended production of the show.

The cult 1960s series Batman continues to entertain Batfans across the globe. Adam West and Burt Ward's colourful and cheesy take on the Dynamic Duo is quite a contrast to the dark on gothic feel of the recent Hollywood movies. The series took the world by storm during the swinging sixties and its popularity shows no sign of waning. As Robin would say:-


Holy autographic opportunity of a lifetime Batman!
