12. It's not him

I forget what the reason was, but Adam West didn't do this spot.

16. Dick Gautier

The explanation seems to be that Adam West was trying to distance himself from the Batman role at the time.

4. She's so hot...

Always had a crush on Batgirl!

Cool commercial as well - too bad this is still an issue 45 years later.

8. Presumably, the money comes from the Wayne family fortune

Which rather invalidates the premise of the ad. I'm overthinking this, aren't I?

9. I suppose Batman could pay Robin. But I don't think anyone pays Batman.

And Batman was never really keen on Bat Girl being around in the first place. Her whole thing was that she was going to be a Super Hero whether Bat Man liked it or not. I can't imagine he'd pay her.

11. Filmed in 1972

The law is from the '60s, but the PSA is from the 1970s.

15. Today Batman would fire both of them

That's how employers get around the law. Employees are fired for sharing what they make with each other.
