    These are the sort of hard hitting questions from our generation that need to be answered! Long live Batman ’66

    Julie Newmar never appeared in any of the Batgirl episodes, Eartha Kitt did and now THAT is a tough choice. I would have to settle for a three-way with Yvonne Craig and Lee Meriwether.

    We haven’t gotten into that argument yet on The Batcave Podcast as we’ve only recently started reviewing the second season, but we definitely noticed that Julie Newmar upped her game with a tighter outfight in her second outing as Catwoman. She herself had a hand in the designing of her costume.!episode-20/cgtz

    Haven’t listened yet – so don’t know if this was mentioned – but Yvonne Craig was the coo-coo green Orion girl in Star Trek original series episode “Whom Gods Destroy.” Painted on costume! Race you to Google Images!

    The quote of the week is a misquote! That’s not what Larry said at all.

    Yes, she played in that Star Trek episode the year after her run on Batman. She was also the star of the film “Mars Needs Women” around that time. She was in an episode of Land of the Giants, as well as The Mod Squad. hat gal was in more stuff that others do not remember than anybody I can think of. Remember Commissioner Gordon? He played her dad or something in an episode of Perry Mason.

    Angela Sommers played an awesome 1960s vintage Batgirl in a Jim Weather’s adaptation of the theme.

    If I was in that suit, they’d have a big dry cleaning bill.
