You mean 50's and 60's, Batman was dark for the majority of the 40's, the campy style started shortly before the Silver Age and took off with it.
And obviously a show doesn't have to be dark and gritty to be well written, but I don't consider the TB&TB show to be well written. Especially, since many of the TB&TB writers worked on Animaniacs, so I know what they're capable of in terms of comedy. There's like 2-3 episodes I'd consider good.
I'm also just tired of people going nuts whenever there's a long musical number in a cartoon. It's like in that Family Guy episode where Peter becomes a football player, which was a horrible episode, but many people are all over it and cite it as "best ever" only because Shipoopi was sung for like 2 minutes. Or hell, I love the Troy McClure focused episode of the Simpsons, but far too many people focus solely on the Planet of the Apes musical number, when that episode had so many other and better jokes.
And yeah, I suppose, there's also a bit of purist in me, who says that Huntress singing is just wrong on so many levels. Doesn't fit the character at all. If you want to go full camp, at least stick to characters who have some history of having been campy(I don't count Earth 2 Huntress, since the Huntress in TB&TB is clearly Helena Bertinelli).
Anyway, I'm not saying "Don't enjoy it! Shame on you!" just explaining why I don't think it's enjoyable.
