Was there ever a "Catwoman" cue made for the series? I ask because both Frank Gorshin and Burgess Meredith did novelty records featuring their characters, and it was a real pity that julie Newmar never had one.

There was some musical ideas that were re-used in some episodes for Catwoman. The ripped suite I posted above, the final two minutes of so is an example.

They did, however, ruin that by later using some of that chase music in another non Catwoman episode.

The series re-used score a lot, and edited cues all the time.

It will be sooooooo cool to get a box set of BATMAN TV scores!
Just like the CHiPs music, it's kitschy and dated, but still cool.

Sure, 24HRS of bat-groove WILL drive you bat-bonkers, however getting a comprehensive anthology similar to STAR TREK TOS & LETHAL WEAPON 1-4...

Talk about living the dream!!!

Since I mentioned CHiPs, how much more remains unreleased?
I discovered that cranking up CHiPs music while playing games like BURNOUT PARDISE...
Is just toooo damn cool!!!

Well, all the scores from the first season of "CHiPs" remain unreleased, which include the composers:
Mike Post & Pete Carpenter, R.I.P. (3)
John Parker (5)
Robert Drasnin (4)
J. J. Johnson, R.I.P. (2)
Nelson Riddle (1)
Billy May, R.I.P. (4)

And from season two to season four there are the episodes FSM didn't do.
And FSM never covered Silvestri's work for season five, since the label closed before that.

And then of course nothing from the last season, season six, where a new composer was brought in by a new producer. Silvestri remained on board, but Luchi De Jesus scored episodes, too. There's no full listing for who scored what episode that season. So far I have noted, from available sources (like Youtube loads of episodes over the years), at least seven episodes for Luchi De Jesus, and at least six for Silvestri.

Season one had some good varied work, and of course we've yet to hear Mike Post's rejected theme music. We're talking about a composer who's created some of the most famous TV themes of all time, remember:
"Magnum, pi"
"Quantum Leap"
"Hill Street Blues"
"The Rockford Files"

and more. The theme's got to be worth a hear.

Holy tv soundtracks!

Got to agree with Disco Stu and Batmusicfan. A Batman tv series release is SO overdue, and every bit as important, if not more than, Goldenthal's Batman and Robin. There's loads of memorable music in this show, and Disco Stu was right on the button with his point about it being memory inducing as much as anything. I'd buy a really well put together collection in a heartbeat.

We all have much to be grateful to Lucas for, but I too was a little surprised by his remarks here. And fittingly we've had an online BIFF!! POW!! CRRUNCH!! brawl to deal with it!

All right, I am sorry to crap on something that is obviously so meaningful to many people...forgive me...

Apology Accepted. Thank you.
