Abstract
This article analyzes the shifting positions and dispositions of licensers in the mid-1960s through a case study comparing the highly successful Batman (ABC, 1965–1967) TV series merchandising campaign with the struggles encountered in producing and merchandising The Green Hornet (ABC, 1966). As licensing moved in-house, licensers lost the managerial autonomy and creative authority they had previously enjoyed.
