Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Trudy was dressed for the Quassar Rocket Act.
And I should have known not to mess with The Piper Wizard!!!!

By the way Jim, The Spartan Act was Johnny Zoppe Jr's first big aerial presentation, I seem to remember it as a Hanging Perch, and the whole rigging descended at the end. Later he built the Double Rocket Act, which I thought was a Beautiful Act.

Sorry Jim, Batman has it all over the Lone Ranger. Especially the Adam West version!

Steven's dad was in the circus and he got to meet Adam West.

30 years later there are still kids with circus dads lining up to get an autographed picture of Batman.

My son Shane has met Adam, Burt Ward and Frank Gorshin. He's sat in one of the original Barris Batmobiles and daddy calls in a favor to have "Batman" (not Adam West but as close as Daddy can possibly get) come to Shane's birthday party every year.

The suit belongs to me. I've had the pieces made by many of the people who created the costumes for the TV show and done from the original patterns.

If Shane wants the Adam West Batman, then the Adam West Batman he shall have!

And to think that just yesterday, It was proven beyond any shadow of a doubt, that in a display of aerial grace and eloquence, high above the reaches of the Big Top floor, Trudy was known to fly. I'm beginning to think that Batman was trying to keep up with her!
