is not my top favorite TV show, but I do like it for
its parts. The greatest part would have to be the character of
the actress who plays her, Yvonne Craig. She's the biggest reason
I watched episodes of the show as a kid. If it didn't have
Batgirl (or Julie Newmar as Catwoman), I didn't watch it.
Batgirl was a feisty, plucky
redhead. Her costume is sensational, as is her motorcycle.
She's a very glamorous, feminine action starlet. Yvonne Craig as
Batgirl could've easily starred in her own show, just as long as it
wasn't ridiculous like the "Batman" series. Her character, in a
more realistic show, could've really worked. One thing I did
like, although I'm not really into camp, is how she always danced
around like a ballerina while fighting the bad guys. That was
cute. Ms. Craig could do this because she
actually had ballerina training. Most people do not realize that
the Batgirl character was originally planned to have her own series
right from the start, but ultimately became a regular during the second
season of the "Batman" show.
