BUGS BUNNY MEETS THE SUPER-HEROES! Batman & Robin!
In the late 1970's a show promoter named Rodger Hess promoted a little kid's live-concert-type show called BUGS BUNNY MEETS THE SUPER-HEROES! It was sort of like the Ice Capades, where cartoon characters come to life & entertain children. The show featured live actors wearing costumes like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Joker, Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, & many more. The photos up above show the front/back of one of the show's programs. It looked like a really neat event & one that I have never heard of! The program has a logo for The DOME in Brighton. That's in the UK so maybe it never came to the US. Anyway, I saw this amazing piece of Bat-History at my friend Brian's website. He has a page called THE PLAID STALLIONS where he pokes fun at pop culture from the 70's. He covers a lot of vintage toys & I really enjoy it. Here's a link button to visit his site but please remember to BOOKMARK the Bat-Blog before ya go!!
