Addams Family.  On YOUTUBE there was a "Leave it to Beaver" TV Clip where they were running some American Flyer trains.

Not a train, but owing to the news today, here's the slot car track with Plasticville buildings that was set up in Wayne Manor on Batman:

Rest in Peace Adam, and we thank you!

I remember that slot car track from "Batman!"  I don't remember which episode, but I DO remember that track, it was the biggest one I'd ever seen, at least until I saw the one installed at Hiway Hobby House in Ramsey NJ a few years later.  The width was just about the same but Hiway Hobby's was a few feet longer.

Sure, this was the time the slot car craze was really taking off, just about every one had a set.

And I second that, Rest in Peace Adam, you're the REAL Batman, just like Burt Ward was the real Robin and Alan Napier was the real Alfred.  Alan was just so cool!

To say nothing of that George Barris creation being the REAL Batmobile!  No Batmobile since has come close.

Thanks for those shots Becky!  The Barris Batmobile just looks right, that's why it's timeless.
