Ka-Pow! A full list of Batman sound effects

batman tv showDespite the fact it went off the air a full eight years before I was born, I count the original Batman series starring Adam West and Burt Ward as one of my favorites. When I was in junior high there was a cable channel called The Family Channel which would air back-to-back episodes of Batman late at night. My dad would let me stay up on school nights and watch them, and since the episodes were shown together there was no waiting till next week to see how the cliffhanger played out. The show is fun to watch as a kid, but as an adult it's easier to catch all the subtle jokes and innuendo. Those who have watched the series after reaching adulthood realize it was actually much smarter and funnier than it seemed on the surface.

That becomes more evident when you check out this awesome collection of sound effects from the series. Well, not sound effects exactly, but the cards that would flash on the screen during fights with words like "POW!," "KER-PLOP!" and one of my favorites, "FLRBBBBB!" Not only is every effect listed, but they're also indexed according to which episode they appeared in. More people with a lot of time on their hands need to do things like this in order to provide me with weekend Web entertainment.

Oh, there still is a Family Channel... But it doesn't show Batman anymore. It's more like ABC 2 now. Though for a year it was more like FOX 2. But no, it's no longer the "Family Channel yes indeed" it used to be.

ZOW!!!
