Holy false climbing, Batman!

The Brothers Chaps have made many references over the years to the famous comic book franchise Batman, or at least the campy '60s television show version of it. They've professed in the DVD commentary for fingers that they'd love to see the original Batman TV series released on DVD.

[edit] Appearances
