Most of these phrases originate from the Batman TV series, which aired from 1966 to 1968. Intended mainly for children, the series focused on humor and the culture of the times.

The Batman movies, by comparison, tend to be much darker and more serious, although the Batman and Robin poster hints at the campiness that infused Joel Schumacher's last turn as a Batman director.

While there are touches of humor in the newest films, they have a far more serious tone and are more grounded in reality than even the Tim Burton movies. A good example of this is Batman's Batmobile, which has evolved from a tricked-out car with '60s fins to a piece of military equipment with a solid, industrial look.
