WHoa!  That's a lotta Batman
Well, I'm sure you know the Adam West Batman series of TV in the 60's.
There was an Adam West film (1966 Batman--The Movie) "Batman Dracula"
(1964)directed by Andy Warhol and a truly frightening "Batman Fights
Dracula" (1967)from the Phillipines with no one you've ever heard of,
as well as the five recent films (Batman, Batman Returns, Batman
Forever, Batman & Robin, Batman Begins). (There is an untitled Batman
Begins sequel in the works to be released in 2008.)

There was also a 15 episode movie house Saturday serial from 1943
called The Batman and reissued as An Evening with Batman and Robin
(and under a couple of other titles) on USA channel.  (And of course
there's always the Hallie Berry "Catwoman" spinoff -- but the less
said about that, the better. Except for the costume of course.)

A couple more foreign films:
Alyas Batman en Robin (1993) 
Tro, håb og Batman (2000)
 aka "Faith, Hope and Batman" - (English title) 

There's the Saturday morning cartoon series: 

 "The Batman/Superman Hour" (1968) 
"The Adventures of Batman" (1969)
 aka "The Adventures of Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder" - USA (complete title)
"The New Adventures of Batman" (1977)
 aka "The Batman/Tarzan Adventure Hour" - USA (rerun title) 
"The New Batman Superman Adventures" (1997)
 "Batman: Gotham Knights" (1997)
 aka "The New Adventures of Batman" - USA (informal alternative title) 

There have been several animated movies for TV, theatre, and direct to video:
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
  aka "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm: The Animated Movie" - USA (promotional title)
 aka "Batman: The Animated Movie"
 aka "Mask of the Phantasm: Batman the Animated Movie" - USA (poster title)
 aka "Batman: The Animated Movie - Mask of the Phantasm" - USA (promotional title) 

 Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998) (V)
 aka "Batman Animated Movie II: The Iceman's Cometh" - USA (working title) 

The Batman/Superman Movie (1998) (TV)
 aka "Batman/Superman Adventures: World's Finest" - USA 

"Batman Beyond" (1999)
 aka "Batman of the Future" - (English title), UK
 aka "Batman Tomorrow" - USA (working title) 

Batman Beyond: The Movie (1999) (TV) 

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000/I) (V)
 aka "Batman of the Future: Return of the Joker" - (English title cut version) 

Batman Featurette (2001) (V) 

Batman: Dead End (2003) 

Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (2003) (V) 

The Death of Batman (2003) 

"The Batman" (2004) 

Dark Justice (2004)
 aka "Batman: Dark Justice" - USA (promotional title) 

The Batman vs Dracula: The Animated Movie (2005) (V) 

Batman: New Times (2005) (V) 

Then there are the various computer/arcade games:
Batman: The Caped Crusader (1988) (VG) 
Batman: Revenge of the Joker (1992) (VG) 
Batman Returns (1992/II) (VG) 
Batman Forever: The Arcade Game (1996) (VG) 
Batman & Robin (1998) (VG) 
Batman Beyond (2000) (VG)
 aka "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker" - USA 
Batman: Vengeance (2001) (VG) 
Batman: Gotham Racer (2001) (VG) 
Batman: Dark Tomorrow (2001) (VG) 
Batman: Chaos in Gotham (2001) (VG) 
Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu (2003) (VG) 
Batman Begins (2005/II) (VG) 

As for the comic books -- geez -- you wanna count every title or just
say DC comics?  There have also been various parodies both within DC
and by other publishers (when they thought they could get away with
it).  There are at least four "primary" Batman titles plus
Batman/Superman, The Justice League of America and "Guest stars" in
Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and other series.  And do you want to
count Robyn's titles and the Teen Titans separately or just lump them
under "one appearance" at DC? Certainly Batman has gone through
several "personalities" at DC from the Golden Age" to the current
"Dark Knight."  But they're all the same DC Comics Batman at some

I think the only thing we're missing is a ballet, musical (don't
laugh, there was a Superman musical) or opera.

There was a Batman radio program too, as well as a Justice League TV pilot.
