The star of the show, Adam West, had quite the opposite issue while filming the campy classic.
"With Adam they put Turkish towels in his undershorts," Ward explained.
Although the show was a huge hit and found fame for the Los Angeles native, who was 20 at the time, Ward said he had other options for a career.
"I was a straight-A student at UCLA. In fact, the Dean at UCLA was upset with me when I left in my third year to do Robin because she said I should have been a nuclear physicist. I was in the top 3% in the United States in science and math," he detailed.
Ward is proud of the legacy of the show that ran from 1966 to 1968, but even more so of his current gig as a superhero to canines.
"My wife and I run the largest giant dog rescue charity in the world," Ward told the publication. "15,500 dogs would be dead if it weren't for my wife Tracy and I. At all times we have a minimum of fifty dogs at our house with us."
And, apparently, he still retains some of his super powers.
"We make our dog food," he added. "We've discovered a way to double and triple the lifespan of dogs."
