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!

Apology Accepted. Thank you.

I would love to have the original music cues even if it made for a short CD. The Marsha music has already been mentioned. It has stayed with me forever, as has the arrangement of "My Foolish Heart" in the Chandel eps. Always enjoyed the "society" music, too, both the waltz/string cue as well as the Manciniesque one. Heck, even the old wandering Minstrel tune was memorable. And the Tut music unforgettable.

Speaking of Penguin, I remember watching American Bandstand or Shindig or whatever and Burgess Meredith came on in full regalia and recited lines inside a song sung by a female chorus that may have been entitled "It's the Penguin." Anyone else? 'S only been fifty years...roll eyes

Is this the song?

DOH! Seeing this thread title gets my hopes up.. Just to see a mere comment instead the news of a release. But the Catwoman stuff I'm sure is that unearthly sound that could be for a campy space flick, it almost has a 'meeowww-ish' part to it.

Nothing useful to add to this thread other than a question about Sigerson’s link to the Burgess Meredith song. Is it just me or does the muted trumpet riff at 1:41 sound like a few notes from the “The James Bond Theme?”

Sound like? It IS the James Bond Theme. I'm no musician and I can hear it. Seems to me maybe a little in-joke, buried enough to get by most people. Can't be coincidence. Surely this would have been practiced and rehearsed, not mention being written in the first place. Plenty of opportunity for someone to recognise it surely, if was purely accidental.

Thank you, Mr. Holmes, for confirming the mind's eye and ear. It was fun seeing him perform it on TV.

I can tell you with 100% authority that a Batman 1966 box set or even a single disc edition of the series is not happening now or for the foreseeable future. We really tried to make it happen for the 50th Anniversary this year but sadly it didn't. However, on November 8th, we are going to be re-releasing the soundtrack to the 1966 feature film. This version will include brand new liner notes by our resident La-La Land Bat-expert John Takis and Bat-tastic new artwork by Jim Titus. All other contents will be the same as our previous release.

It seemed fitting to reissue that classic soundtrack for the 50th Anniversary since we will also be releasing the brand new soundtrack to the animated feature film Batman Return of the Caped Crusaders starring Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar. That too comes out next Tuesday November 8th

Hello LaLaLand, your entry has vanished. Disappearing digital ink, hmm? Inquiring minds would like to know why "sadly it didn't." Give us a clue, por favor!

LATE EDIT: it reappeared and then re-disappeared; this am one weird website

What the hell is up with this 1966 Batman rights? Who are the parties that are making this such a fucking chore on every level? First it was merchandising trouble, then it was DVD trouble, re-braodcast televiswion trouble, and each time something is cleared up, we find another fucking shoe has dropped and that current shoe is now the scoring.

The party or parties doing this, need a swift kick in the bat-ass.

Well. I guess I better start nagging La La Land Records for the Six Million Dollar Man soundtrack.

Holy Etruscan Snood! There's no shortage of this kind of entertainment / torture on YouTube!

West boldly went where Shatner feared to tread! I don't think even Nimoy ever sang in his Star Trek outfit
(--on a variety show, I mean).

I think it has to do with how much it would cost to license and remaster the tapes for CD release. Most probably there's too much risk of not being able to make a profit on it.
