Relive 1960s Batman in deliciously cheesy, bite-sized Vine clips

Batman v Superman comes out this week, and that means it’s high time to immerse yourself in DC Comics canon. Or, alternatively, you could just start following a few fantastic social media accounts celebrating the idiotic charm of the 1960s live-action Batman series. 

These out-of-context Batman vines will never stop being entertaining.

BatLabels (which includes a Vine account, as well as Twitter and Tumblr for still screencaps) collects all the silly, self-explanatory labels from 1966 Batman. And oh boy, there are a lot of them.

Aside from the quiet genius of the labels themselves, many of which would make excellent band names (“BAT GIRL GEIGER COUNTER”), @BatLabels unintentionally highlights the aesthetic genius of 1960s Batman. Every screencap is a colorful, surreal masterpiece in its own right.

Mark your calendars. March 2016 is when we all realized that the 1960s Batman show was both a miracle of production design, and absolutely perfect for Vine.
