Fans of Burt Ward were waiting to see him appear in a new production anytime after they became captivated with his portrayal of the role he was destined to fill: Robin / Dick Grayson in the three seasons of BATMAN. No one will probably ever get it quite right as Burt did in his role as the boy wonder.
Burt was as perplexed at his lack of roles he was offered post Batman as his fans were. But perhaps this vintage TV article Emerald & Hobbit recently discovered in their archives sheds some explanation on why he may have been continually over looked, or perhaps avoided.
