Don’t expect him to don the cowl and cape anytime soon, but the “original” Batman, Adam West, recently got behind the wheel of the 1960’s Batmobile in a new episode of Jay Leno’s Garage for CNBC. In the new episode titled “Crime Fighters,” Leno and West take the original Batmobile through a fast food restaurant drive through to get burgers for what Leno calls the “best day ever.” Also in the episode, Leno drives around the Ghostbusters car with Dan Aykroyd.

Batfans will also be glad to hear that rumors of a reuniting of Adam West and Burt Ward, who played the dynamic duo on the Batman TV series from 1966 to 1969, are still buzzing. Last year, West and Ward teased a crowd of fans that the two would be voicing a new 90-minute animated project to be released sometime this year as part of the Batman TV show’s 50th anniversary, but news of the project has been sparse. However, Cinemablend reports that last month at the Megacon Event in Orlando, Florida, Adam teased more rumors saying, “Well, I have a gag order...However... No no, me and Burt have been working on a new project that's just gonna knock your socks off, and believe me, it's our Batman and Robin!”
