When I was a kid and the Batman show was new, a gas station close to my grandparents' house had a sign out front that said something like "BATMAN KIT XX WITH FILL-UP." I saw that and immediately thought that it was a Batman costume. I had to have it and begged my grandpa for it.
Imagine my surprise when it wasn't a costume, but a model kit
. I was disappointed, but I put it together and loved it anyway.
My mom made me a Batman cape and I was ecstatic.
It was great being a kid in the 60s.
