Burt Ward Claims ABC Made Him Take Pills To Shrink Robin’s Bulge

January 13, 2020 / Posted by:

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with reruns of the 1960s Batman TV series. And at one point, I had a Robin action figure with a karate-chop hand that, sadly, died when my cousin took a golf club to him in his driveway (an action figure of Data from Star Trek: TNG was also a tragic casualty of the Five Iron Massacre). All this to say, that I had no idea up until today that the higher ups at ABC allegedly wanted Burt Ward’s bulge situation to be as smooth and plain as the plastic crotch on my action figure.

74-year-old Burt Ward played Robin/Dick Grayson on ABC’s Batman from 1966 to 1968. And he claims that ABC gave him┬ádick-shrinking pills to please the pearl-clutchers watching at home.┬áBurt, who recently got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (pics below), spoke to Page Six about the drama his dick put him through while working on Batman. According to Burt, there was no way to hide his dick in his tight green shorts, and people started complaining, like the Catholic League of Decency. So ABC did the very 1960s thing by trying to get Burt hooked on drugs. But these weren’t fun drugs, they were drugs to make his dink shrink.

The problem grew so tumescent that the studio had Ward see a doctor who prescribed medication “to shrink me up.” Thankfully Ward quit taking the pills almost immediately. “I took them for three days and then I decided that they can probably keep me from having children,” he said. “I stopped doing that and I just used my cape to cover it.”

Sadly, Burt was the only one who was forced to wrangle his hog. He claims that the late Adam West was encouraged to put the bat in Batman.

“With Adam they put Turkish towels in his undershorts,” he explained.

Burt adds that despite having the kind of dick that TV executives try to shrink with shady pills, he wasn’t a ladies man, because he didn’t drink, do drugs, or hang out in bars. Um, it sounds like Burt didn’t have to go so far to land the ladies? His dick was allegedly so big, people were gagging on it through their TV screens. All he had to do was walk up to any woman and say, “There’s a reason I play a character named Dick. I mean, yes, it’s because that’s his name in the comic books, but also…you know.
