2. Batman: On the other side of the spectrum, we have a series that became famous because it did away with so much of the original material. Its producer hated comic books and made the series in a campy style. By the third season, backdrops were obviously 2D and topical references were injected about hippies as plots became 3-act affairs that dove into surrealism. Despite all this, the show was immensely popular and had a lasting impact on both TV and comics (bet you didn't know Mr. Freeze was originally named Mr. Zero, until the TV show changed his name).
