Batman is a fictional character who was created by Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. The Batman character first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939.

The 1960s television series was not the first time that Batman appeared on film. In fact, the character (first called "the Bat-Man") was featured in a 1943 black-and-white serial series that spanned 15 chapters and was shown in theaters.

In fact, the theatrical re-release of the 1943 serial in 1965 is what gave producers the inspiration to bring the character back in a television series.

The star of the television series was Adam West. As Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne, he engaged in adventures with his partner, Robin/Dick Grayson, played by Burt Ward.

The distinguishing feature of the television series was a humorous and lighthearted attitude that many viewed as camp. It also was very colorful, as color televisions were just becoming popular and producers wanted to take full advantage of it.

Batman and Robin live in Gotham City. They fight a variety of colorful villains who have descriptive nicknames that reveal their primary criminal traits.

Batman and Robin work closely with the Gotham City police. When they need Batman's help, the police send a Bat-signal that reflects off of clouds.

Even though the television series aired for only parts of three seasons, it often aired more than once a week. This led to the creation of 120 episodes, which now would be enough for four or five weekly seasons.

Batman and Robin rode in their distinctive Batmobile, which was a modified 1950s concept car that never entered production.

The Batman television series used a lot of gimmicks that created a distinctive look that has never been equaled.

Batman TV series coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

These gimmicks included tilting the camera to make certain scenes appear off-kilter and written descriptive words such as "Wham!" and "Pow!" shown in comic book style.

The Batmobile was parked in the Bat Cave underneath Wayne Manor on the outskirts of Gotham City.

Some people forget that two other women also played Catwoman.

One of the other women who played Catwomen was singer Eartha Kitt.

Many of the characters and plots in the episodes were drawn from the comic book adventures of Batman and Robin.

Because "Batman" was aimed at children, the characters were scrupulously careful to follow safe practices such as fastening seat belts in the Batmobile.

Batman TV series coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

When in real trouble, Batman would use special items in his utility belt to get out of trouble. Sometimes these items were quite large.

Classic Lost in Space Coloring Pages Free and Downloadable

It Does Not Compute!

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com
"Lost in Space" (All images courtesy CBS/20th Century Fox).
"Lost in Space" was a science fiction television series created by Irwin Allen that ran from 1965 to 1968.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

While there have been various remakes in film and television, this page is about the classic television series that began it all.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Here we have Classic Lost in Space coloring pages free and downloadable.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The "Lost in Space" cast members were Angela Cartwright, Mark Goddard, Marta Kristen, Bob May (Robot), Jonathan Harris, June Lockhart, Guy Williams, and Billy Mumy.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

"Lost in Space" was loosely based on the 1812 novel "Swiss Family Robinson" by Johann David Wyss. That was about a Swiss family shipwrecked in the Pacific Ocean and forced to survive on a deserted island.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

"Lost in Space" was set in outer space, not the Pacific Ocean, but otherwise it was fairly similar to its source material. The Robinson family, sent into space to colonize another star system, is prevented from reaching its destination. They must learn to survive in uninhabited places while they try to either get home or to their destination.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Robinsons are aided by their robot, which does not have a name (or at least is not called by any name during the series other than "Robot").

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Robot's purpose is to help the Robinsons adapt to their environment and to protect them. He is capable of electrical blasts from his two retractable robot arms that discourage attacks.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Robinsons travel in a spacecraft called the Jupiter 2. This spacecraft is often grounded, but there are times when the Robinsons manage to get it into space and travel to other worlds.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

However, the Robinsons are truly lost. Thus, while they can travel through space in the Jupiter 2, they don't know where to go. They wind up wandering aimlessly and landing on new worlds where they once again must adapt to alien conditions.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

When exploring their new home, the Robinsons use the Chariot. This is a treaded vehicle that is able to overcome a variety of hostile environments.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The most challenging situation the Chariot faces is when it is caught in a giant ocean whirlpool.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

There are lots of futuristic gadgets on "Lost in Space." Some of these were real-life technology at the time. These included the jetpack used by Professor John Robinson, the expedition's leader.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

John Robinson used the jetpack to search for lost crewmembers.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

One major difference from "Swiss Family Robinson" was the presence of a villain. This was a stowaway, Dr. Zachary Smith.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Dr. Smith was a saboteur who tried to destroy the Jupiter 2 but wound up trapped on board. He fails in his mission and survives to become a constant source of problems for the Robinsons.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Maureen Robinson, John's wife, handles domestic chores aboard the Jupiter 2.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

She is largely responsible for Dr. Smith being given full crew privileges aboard the Jupiter 2.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Dr. Smith develops a strong bond with the Robinsons' son, Will Robinson.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Dr. Smith, Will Robinson, and the Robot engage in a lot of adventures together.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Jupiter 2's pilot is U.S. Space Corps Major Don West. He is the second-in-command and, like Dr. Smith, is not a member of the Robinson family.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Major West romances the Robinsons' older daughter, Judy.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

While the Robinsons rarely encounter alien civilizations, they do often get unwelcome visitors.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Robot helps Professor Robinson and Major West defend the Jupiter 2 in those situations.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Dr. Smith sometimes helps to defend the Jupiter 2, especially in the early episodes.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

However, Dr. Smith usually is the source of the Jupiter 2's problems in the first place.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Dr. Smith's origins are murky. He is a member of Alpha Control, the organization that sent the Jupiter 2 into space.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

However, while posing as an Alpha Control doctor, Dr. Smith actually is an agent for an unidentified foreign power.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The Robinsons have a younger daughter, Penny.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Penny is in that awkward stage that Britney Spears would call no longer a girl, not yet a woman.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

John and Maureen remain a loving couple despite everything that the universe can throw at them.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

This includes at least one instance when John tries to kill Maureen. But, he was possessed by aliens, so it doesn't really count, sort of.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

Judy get the least airtime of everyone, so let's rectify that a little bit right here.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

I can't remember which episode featured Judy wielding a laser pistol, but it was probably the only one.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

In one of their earliest adventures, the Robinsons encounter one of their most impressive adversaries.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

This is the Cyclops. He's called Cyclops because he has only one eye. That's what creatures with one eye are almost always called.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

While there are some great possibilities with the Cyclops, nothing much happens with him. Eventually, he just falls over.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

But, he's a great character anyway.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

The real action usually takes place with the Robot and Dr. Smith. They are frenemies.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

When they aren't trying to kill each other, the Robot and Dr. Smith invariably are encountering aliens who want to kill them.

Lost in Space coloring pages coloring.filminspector.com

However, Professor Robinson always comes along to save the day in his colorful outfits.
