Holy walk of fame, Batman! Burt Ward finally gets his Hollywood Star

Burt Ward, the boy wonder himself, has at long last received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was given the honor in a January 9th ceremony complete with actors dressed as Batman, Robin, Catwoman, and more.

"It's only been 50 years," Ward said, referring to the iconic 1966 show Batman. "And I am a patient person."

Ward's best-known role is that of Dick Grayson, also known as Robin, Boy Wonder. With Adam West as Batman, they protected Gotham from menaces like the Joker, Catwoman, and The Penguin— usually with some absurd gadget-of-the-week.

Robin's catchphrase of "Holy [insert wholesome but ridiculous exclamation here], Batman!" is still used in the pop culture lexicon today. 

Ward's star is located next to Adam West's star, so the crime-fighting duo can stay together. West, who passed away in 2017, received his star in 2012.

Ward recently reprised his role as Robin in a cameo in the CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths series.
