TV-Theme-A-Day: Dick Tracy

    After the Adam West Batman show came close to taking over the world there for a while there, producer William Dozier was eager to repeat the formula with other comic strip characters. The Green Hornet, Dick Tracy, Wonder Woman and Batgirl where all presented as possible series, although The Green Hornet was the only one to make it to series. The camp fad was over nearly as soon as it began, but not before a pilot was shot for the proposed Dick Tracy series. A shame that we never got anymore series out of the craze, but considering how quickly Batman wore out its welcome, it's probably a blessing.
