A Look Back At The Iconic “Batman” TV Series

Robin’s Short End Of The Stick

Apparently, producers didn’t think Robin was as important as Batman. Burt Ward was only paid $350 a week filming the first season of Batman. They also made him perform his own stunts, telling him that his costume was more revealing of his face and that required him to do his stunts. As Ward later found out, in addition to getting the minimum wage, making him perform his own stunts was cheaper than hiring a stunt double.
