Stephen Colbert Rolls Out New Batman Carols And Snubs Kevin Conroy

On his show this week, Stephen Colbert unveiled some new Batman related Christmas carols with the help of Jon Batiste. The idea being the Jon didn't like the classic: "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells…" because it's a sad story of the Joker escaping because Batman and car troubles. So they performed a medley of new Batman alter carols. The final one of the trio, set to Angels We Have Heard On High, featured them saying the names of actors who have played Batman from Adam West to Ben Affleck and even included Will Arnett. The final line being "These are all the Batmans"… except there was no mention of Kevin Conroy. For many, Conroy is the one true Batman.
