Perpetually in print for what seemed like decades, this great '66 book was a harbinger of the overall nostalgia movement that hit big for about a decade beginning in the mid-sixties.

Bat Stuff # 72

Holy Credit Lines, Batman! Here--from September of '66--we see Bill Finger actually being given at least a sort of credit for his role in the creation of BATMAN.

1966 Chrysler Imperial Crown

The 1966 Chrysler Imperial Crown, a cool large car that took on extra coolness when it was used as the basis for the Green Hornet and Kato's Black Beauty!

Dr. Who and the Daleks

The venerable DR. WHO franchise first appeared in the US in late '66 when Peter Cushing's big screen version crossed the Atlantic.

In England, the Daleks were, if anything, even more popular than the Doctor! Below is a wire service photo from March of 1965. Beneath that is a 1965 MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW episode listing showing that at least some effort was made to make them that popular here as well. Didn't catch on, though.
