Happy Birthday, Yvonne Craig!

Thanks to DCWKA for reminding me that today is Yvonne Craig’s birthday!

Craig portrayed Barbara Gordon in the 1960’s Batman television show; she’s also the original Barbara Gordon, as the character was created to help boost ratings for the show. Thank goodness for that!

As Batgirl, Yvonne helped create a spunky, strong heroine and the DC Universe has never been the same since! And as a Batgirl fan I have a lot to thank her for. Happy Birthday, Yvonne!

Below are several great videos (and a trip down memory lane for many) of some of Batgirl’s best moments in the show. You may also recognize Sid Caesar as the Joker, Eartha Kitt as Catwoman, and of course, Adam West as the Caped Crusader.

And I love her PSA for the Federal Equal Pay Law!
