Jared’s Mailbox: Vintage Batman + Robin Postcard

I recently received this postcard from the mail. It was my Tita Jinky who swapped this for me because she knows that I love Batman, yes, including the old version. This one is from the Batman TV series that featured Adam West as our favorite caped crusader.

This is what Wiki has to say about Batman TV series:

Batman is a 1960s American live action television series, based on the DC comic book character of the same name. It stars Adam West as Bruce Wayne / Batman and Burt Ward as Dick Grayson / Robin ~ two crime-fighting heroes who defend Gotham City from a variety of arch villains. It is known for its camp style, upbeat theme music, and its intentionally humorous, simplistic morality {aimed at its largely teenage audience}. This included championing the importance of using seat belts, doing homework, eating vegetables, and drinking milk. It was described by executive producer William Dozier as the only situation comedy on the air without a laugh track. The 120 episodes aired on the ABC network for three seasons from January 12, 1966 to March 14, 1968, twice weekly for the first two and weekly for the third. In 2016, television critics Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz ranked Batman as the 82nd greatest American television show of all time.

I have yet to see this series but mum said she used to watch it when she was younger when it was aired in a local channel. Although I prefer the modern Bat-suit and the modern actors who portrayed this superhero, I do believe that Adam West did a great job and he was a cool Batman. I also enjoy seeing his Lego version in the Lego Batman Movie game.

This is an awesome superhero postcard + I love having this in my collection. My mum has build up my collection over the years + she plans to add some more this year as she re-activates our postcrossing.com profiles so we can send and received more cards. She hopes to have me write my own cards for sending. I guess we will see if I am up to the task. 🙂

So, do you love Batman + are you also into postcrossing?

Google Doodle: New Planets Discovered!

Google Doodle, hobbies and interests, the world today

Have you seen the new Google Doodle today? It is a cool and colorful illustration/video of 7 cute planets saying hello. This is to celebrate the 7 planets that are discovered recently. Experts say that they are about the same size as our planet, Earth, and they all orbit closely together around the star named Trappist-1. They are also saying liquid water, as well as signs of life, might just be found in the surface of these planets.

How cool it would be like to discover new things, right? We all are a bit small and we discover something new everyday + each discovery is just as exciting as the last one. It would be fun to know more about these new planets as we grow to know more about our own. We have yet to talk about these topics in school + I cannot wait to learn about them!

Do you also like the new Google Doodle + the new discovered planets?

I thought these blades and swords are a great addition to anyone’s toy collection, especially if you are a fun of ninjas + samurais. Also, these swords will make for an awesome addition for great costumes, especially during Halloween or parties!
