Actor Burt Ward, 74, receives the honor of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, in a spot adjacent to the star of his late co-star Adam West.

Best known for being Batman’s crimefighting sidekick Robin who was famously excitable, with all his “Holy Fill-in-the-Blank” exclamations during the three-season run of the enduringly popular 1960s “Batman” series. But actor Burt Ward learned early on to take the highs and lows of his showbiz career in stride — and that includes a decades-long wait for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“It’s only been 50 years, and I am a patient person,” said Ward recently. Ward made his performing debut at age 2 as the world’s youngest professional ice skater in his father’s traveling ice show, a precursor to the Ice Capades.

In the years since Batman, Ward has been at the helm of various businesses and charitable enterprises, including former VFX house Boy Wonder Visual Effects, which provided effects for 35 films during its run. Today he and his wife run Gentle Giants Products, a dog food company and dog rescue effort focused on super-sized canines. (The couple routinely have as many as 50 dogs living with them.)
