Burt Ward is best known for his portrayal of Robin, the loyal sidekick of Batman, played by Adam West, in the television series Batman (1966–68), its theatrical feature film and Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.
The series only lasted three seasons, for a total of 120 episodes; according to Ward in an interview, this was because of the high cost of production.
Adam West and Burt Ward reprised their TV roles of Batman and Robin in the 20th Century Fox film Batman: The Movie released on July 30, 1966.
In 1985, DC Comics named Ward as one of the honorees in the company's 50th-anniversary publication Fifty Who Made DC Great for his work on the Batman series.
In June 1995, Ward wrote a tell-all autobiography called Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights, which described his time playing Robin.
Burt Ward will be appearing at Hamilton Comic Con on Saturday and Sunday.
