Holy walk of fame, Batman! Burt Ward finally gets his Hollywood Star

The star is located next to Adam West's.

Burt Ward, the boy wonder himself, has at long last received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was given the honor in a January 9th ceremony complete with actors dressed as Batman, Robin, Catwoman, and more.

"It's only been 50 years," Ward said, referring to the iconic 1966 show Batman. "And I am a patient person."

Ward's best-known role is that of Dick Grayson, also known as Robin, Boy Wonder. With Adam West as Batman, they protected Gotham from menaces like the Joker, Catwoman, and The Penguin— usually with some absurd gadget-of-the-week.

Robin's catchphrase of "Holy [insert wholesome but ridiculous exclamation here], Batman!" is still used in the pop culture lexicon today. 

Ward's star is located next to Adam West's star, so the crime-fighting duo can stay together. West, who passed away in 2017, received his star in 2012.

Ward recently reprised his role as Robin in a cameo in the CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths series.

Yes, Adam West would be proud of Burt Ward very much. I'm very happy that Burt Ward finally got a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, especially next to Adam West's Star and also
being the only surviving cast member of the 1966 TV series "Batman".

I'm Extremely pleased as Burt being the second only surviving original cast member of the 1966 Batman TV series. The only other surviving cast member actress Julie Newmar (88 years old) being the second actress to play the Catwoman character. Actress Lee Meriweather (86 years old) who is still alive played the first Catwoman in the 1966 Batman Movie but never played Catwoman on the Batman TV series although she did appear on the Batman TV series but as a regular co-star playing Bruce Wayne's possible love interest and
never mentioned in comparison conversation articles online to Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry Anne Hathaway and Zoe Kravitz. Congratulations to Mr. Ward on finally being acknowledged. Good for him

Eartha Kitt also played Cat Woman in the 1966 Batman series. You forgot that didn't you?
