Crazy Justin Idea - Batman

This is a TV show idea. I think that someone should completely remake the original Batman TV show. You know, the live action version that featured Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin. The one that always ended with, "same Bat-time, same Bat-channel".

Ok, this idea sounds pretty straightforward. However, here comes the crazy. First, instead of remaking the TV show with new scripts, et al., they would literally take the same scripts from the 1960s episodes and just re-film all of the scenes. Second, there would be no cast. Instead, you would use guest characters every week to fill in the main roles of Batman and Robin, as well as that of villains.

The idea would be that you would cast the characters with ridiculous people. Like, Norm MacDonald and Artie Lange one week. The episode would then end with its ridiculous cliffhanger and the requisite "Tune-in next week". Then next week you would turn the show on and find that Batman was now being played by Dave Chappelle and Robin by Peyton Manning.
