'Batman' star intends to keep show's scripts

Adam West has more than fond memories of playing superhero Batman in the 1960s TV series.

West kept old costumes and all the original scripts with his handwritten notations from the ABC show that aired for three seasons.

"I've gotten calls from people in Japan. They want to pay a lot of money for my scripts," West told The Associated Press recently.

Asked if he would sell, West replied, "Not unless I have to put another kid through college."

The 72-year-old actor and his third wife have six grown children between them.

West and Burt Ward, who was Batman's sidekick Robin, play themselves in "Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt" airing Sunday on CBS.
