    Sorry to hear of Batgirl's passing. With all the new Marvel characters on screen, Batgirl was one of the first TV hot female superheros from my childhood (watched her in reruns) before Wonder woman.
    At least she got some recognition in the new Batman Classic slot machine. Off course the big question everyone wanted to know was if Batman and Batgirl ever had an off screen relationship, I don't think Adam West ever commented on that.

    Here is Batgirl in all her glory..

    Yes.....I saw her "obit" in the paper.
    I had forgotten all about her/character.
    She was attractive.........and it was as silly, as a show, as Wonder Woman.
    Unfortunately, ( in my mind ) always matched up against Julie Newmar ( catwoman ).
    Nobody was sexier than Julie.

    For you old timers, Craig also starred in the original Star Trek. She was the green girl. Those that watched the original star trek know who I'm talking about.

    Hard to believe she was in her 80's but guess it had to be since the show (batman and star trek) occurred almost 50 years ago. I know, batman was so corny even in those days.
