To The Batcave!

Thanks To Robby Reed over at Dial B For Blog we know that today marks the 40th anniversary of the debut of the Batman TV show on ABC TV in 1966.

One of the more mysterious items in Bat-lore is the presence of a giant T. rex in the trophy room of the Batcave. THIS SITE inflorms us that the T. rex (above) first appeared in Batman #35 in June 1946 with art by Bob Kane and Ray Burnley.

The dinosaur showed up in the Batcave two years later in Batman #48 in August 1948 with art by Jim Mooney.
