Holy anniversary, Bat-fans!

Adam West's Batman is finally coming to DVD, confirmed, along with a tweet from Conan O'Brien with the Batmobile.

In the mid-1960s, there were three Bs that ruled the world: the Beatles, Sean Connery as Ian Fleming's dashing super-spy James Bond, and Adam West as Batman, the Caped Crusader who defended Gotham City from the rogue gallery of villains such as the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Catwoman.

Aired on ABC from 1966 to 1968, Batman was more comical and tongue-in-cheek before becoming the big-screen brooding superhero and Dark Knight Detective we all know and love on thanks to director Tim Burton and Michael Keaton, brothers Jonathan and Christopher Nolan, and Oscar nominee Christian Bale.

Still, the series remains a cult favorite and guilty pleasure among fans -- thanks to the Batmobile, that is.

No word yet on where the DVD will be release, which is set for sometime later this year.
