Burt Ward, who played Robin in the campy ’60s TV series Batman alongside Adam West, says producers, concerned about how much the tight-fitting costume showed off, sent him to a doctor who prescribed pills to shrink the size of his package.
Said Ward to Page Six: “They thought that Robin had a very large bulge for television. With Adam they put Turkish towels in his undershorts. I took [the pills] for three days and then I decided that they can probably keep me from having children. I stopped doing that and I just used my cape to cover it.”
Ward received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week.
