Burt Ward To The Rescue


Interview: I am joined by actor, crime fighter, and canine crusader, Burt Ward. From Caped Crusader to Canine Crusader we discuss Burt's two amazing origin stories. First, Burt's current work running the largest large dog rescue in the world. Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions is a nonprofit run by Burt and his wife Tracey. Together they have saved over 15,500 dogs! They also developed a revolutionary dog/cat food that extends the lives of pets well beyond their expected lifetimes. Second, we dive into Burt's role as the Boy Wonder, Robin, on TV's 'Batman'. Burt shares so many amazing stories with me including landing the role of Robin, stories about all the great guest stars and villains he had the pleasure to work with, his relationship with Adam West, Sparring and starring with Bruce Lee, egg fights with Vincent Price, and many more amazing behind the scenes stories.  

We also discussed some post-Batman work on The Simpsons, Futurama, and Adult Swim. I also had to ask about 'Legends of the Superheroes' and reprising his Batman '66 role for 'Crisis on Infinite Earths'. 

Holy Guacamole, that's a lot!
