Burt Ward as Robin in the 1966 Batman series. The vest was so tight he had trouble breathing. The cape pulled back on his neck. And the tights – well, use your imagination.

Burt Ward, who got his theatrical start playing Robin in 1966 on the Batman TV show, will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 9, 2020.  His star will be at 6764 Hollywood Boulevard in front of The Guinness World of Records Museum on  Thursday, January 9, 2020 at 11:30 A.M. PDT.

Holy Tricksters, Batman! 

There is no charge to watch the ceremony.  If someone tries to sell you a ticket, they are attempting to scam you. 

Free for Everyone

Anyone may come to witness.  Comfortable shoes are recommended.  Please do not bring chairs.  If you are unable to be in Los Angeles, you may watch the ceremony on-line; the event will be live-streamed exclusively on www.walkoffame.com

Burt Ward will be the 2,683rd Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
in the Category of Television.  Appropriately, his star will be next to his co-star and friend Adam West‘s star.

Ward’s most recent role was as Wayne in Star Quest, which was released last month.  He played a doctor in the 2018 supernatural drama Heaven & Hell.  He also did a lot of voice work, reprising his role as Robin several times, and as young Barnacle Boy on SpongeBob SquarePants.

A martial artist in real life, Batman was not the only production where Burt Ward used his fighting talents.  He appeared in Karate Raider, Cyber-C.H.I.C., and Robot Ninja, and assisted with visual effects with Bulletproof Monk.
