2. Holy Cash Cow!: BATMAN & ROBIN COINBANKS
Holy Batmania! Batman and Robin coinbanks! The campy TV series ‘Batman’ (starring Adam West and Burt Ward) that first aired in 1966 proved to be such an outlandish hit that it spawned a thousand and one merchandise for gullible kids to lap up—from masks, costumes, Batmobile to more unique items such as these 7 inch porcelain banks. A Manila shop that was going out of business had old stocks of toys –so I did her a favor and cleaned up her shelves. That’s how I came to own this Dynamic Duo for just a dollar! Ka-ching! Ka-ching! Kappowww!
