I was wasting time on Ebay yesterday and ended up in a section of old "Teen" magazines from the 1960's. Magazines like 16, Tiger Beat, Teen. These mags had great covers, with stories on all the teen heart throbs of the day (for some reason, TV's Batman and Robin were BIG to this crowd). The Beach Boys were mentioned from time to time on the covers, but I could not find one that was featuring the Boys for that issue. It was usually the Beatles, the Stones, etc... as the feature.
Does anyone know of an old mag that featured the Beach Boys?

Probably Capitol's house-produced magazine TEEN SET.

Depends which era of the mags you're looking at. Post 1965 The BBs developed a more mature following as their music advanced and post 1966 in America the band's following dwindled. Maybe it would be better trying to track down American teen music mags from before 1966.
Speaking of Batman and Robin, BBC Four over here are showing all the old episodes and they're great fun but also very camp.

While the address for the site you shared is evident if you pay attention to where you're visiting, I think it would have been only fair to mention that the images are from Disk Tracy's site, at:

Also, I don't believe the first Teenset is considered all that rare anymore, as it shows up fairly regularly on Ebay...

Batman and Robin was huge in the 60s! They were my first heroes. I watched them as a Bat-toddler when they were on TV in the late 60s and eagerly watched the Batreruns after I got home from Batschool during the 70s. I drove my parents Batty back then. I also collect 60s Batman stuff like action figures and the Batmobile.

As much as I love the darker Batman from the comic books, Adam West IS Batman on the Batscreen! He was my first impression of Batman on the big screen and on TV and Zaps all the others to come after him to bits. The TV and comic book Batman were different and I liked them both. The later Batman movies patterned him as the Dark Knight of the comic books, but they failed to capture the spirit and imagination of the character in those books.

The 1966 Batmobile and James Bond 007's 1964 Aston Martin DB5 are still my most favorite cars ever!

Cool stuff. I remember them from that time too. Mid sixties. Life was a lot simpler then. ;)

Not that I remember everything, as I was continually being called away to the batroom - some things just don't change... ;)

Check out this site with tons of Teen magazine covers archived. There are many with the Beach Boys on the cover, or sharing the cover. I tried to copy and save some of them, but I had trouble getting the whole image to copy. Enjoy.

No one's mentioned it yet, but... Domenic Priore's LISTEN! LOOK! VIBRATE! SMILE! is basically a scrapbook of articles from those magazines. It's a lot of fun to flip through.
