Burt Ward was the most handsome actor to ever play a costumed hero

He was my first real celebrity crush. Such a hottie.

He was handsome for about 15 minutes. He was also a major asshole. But yes, as Robin he was very cut.

But to be that young and get that much fame so quickly has got to fuck with your head.

We’ve all heard the rumors of him being hung. Just how big was it?

He likes to claim that he's hung. Which means he's probably about 2 inches, max.

Not much of an actor, which probably helped the camp aspect of the show. Got a big head about himself. Unemployable after Batman ended. Got old and ugly but apparently gained some humility.

The hook-up store is just ridiculous. I suspect Cesar Romero was more discreet.

His memoir was pure sleaze. I flipped through it in a used bookstore; there was some passage about a sexual experience he had with EIGHT prostitutes, all at the same time. He really went off the top going on about how desirable he was to women. I'm sure he got some during the Batman days but I doubt he was much sought after when it ended. Batman...that was his entire career.

He and his wife ran a giant dog rescue and adoption service on their property in God forsaken Norco, Ca.. It is now closed and apparently for good reason. It and the Wards had terrible reviews. From the reviews I get the feeling Burt & Tracy are very rich lowbrow deadbeats who will do anything to get out of taking care of their responsibilities.

I'm just amazed a couple reportedly worth $120 million would choose to live out there in that horrible area. They have this gigantic house with a pool that probably cost over a million dollars and all around them are nothing but cracker box houses on dusty dirt lots.

His wife sounds nuts.

"My family adopted a borzoi from them recently after telling Tracy we wanted a mellow dog who was good with children. i really believe Tracy has aspergers ( she has every symptom) and so she knows all her dogs in that obsessive aspergers way but lacks any understanding of emotional issues they may have and also has no social skills with the families required to wait for hours in the cold very smelly yard while she brings out the possible dogs to adopt. We took a beautiful dog home after they neutered her (bizarre that their dogs are not neutered since they roam freely together). the dog was TERRIFIED of children and us and a leash since they do not walk their dogs or train them and they have almost no staff working with them."

Batman was so homoerotic. I was obsessed with the episode where Batman was drugged and could be manipulated into doing anything. At 13, I thought I had found the solution to having sex with the football captain I was so horny for.

I read his memoir. It was poorly written. Part hetero escapades, part braggadocio . He claims to have been up for the lead in The Graduate but the Batman show wouldn't allow it.

This review on Amazon about sums it up.

"Published by a company that Burt Ward owns (with good cause... no one in their right mind would touch this), Burt tells us how he was an honor role student, best chess player in his school, and speed reads 30,000 words a minute. He later describes how he was Bruce Lee's equal in the martial arts and how the nasty Batman producers kept him from playing the title role in The Graduate, leaving the role open for Dustin Hoffman. What he does not tell us is how such a great actor as he seems to feel that he is, spent the next thirty years making a living shaking hands at car lots. He does tell us that he got laid a lot. Not as much detail is spent discussing the un-named compainons though as tales as to how large his organ is, and how many orgasms he was able to bring them to on a regular basis. Funny thing about the book. He never discusses any friends. Upon reading the book it is apparent as to why. It is hard to imagine him having any."

a episode of the mad matter with david wayne...

other episodes (the joker episode "surf's up") where he did show bulge as did adam west... also the riddler episode where both he and west are tied up on those rotating wheels, both ward and west ESPECIALLY west are majorly bulging...

and there was a particular homoerotic scene in the episode of the sandman with michael rennie (white powder blown in robins' face metaphor anyone! while he is held down by the tall sexy handsome masculine rennie/sandman and then brainwashed and led away and in control of by his new "daddy" the sandman who towers over him.....
