Batman and Robin's Batcomputer
Its great to see one of our restorations covered on the web. The original Batcomputer was discovered by Emerald & Hobbit's archivist Rob Klein in the 1999. It was in the elements and being rained on. Rob purchased the set piece and restored it to its original glory, using as many of the original lights and components that were still able to be located. The restoration was completed in 2003 with working lights and switches, looking once again as it appeared in the 1966-1969 television series "Batman" and the 1967 feature film of the same name. Though it was labeled as many different "Bat" pieces of equipment over the three seasons that the script called for, it was referred often as simply as the "Batcomputer" in many episodes.
