    Wow, that's a real shock. She hadn't been involved with the rest of the cast since the revival and while her absents was noticeable I didn't put any further thoughts into it. Since Adam West and Julie Newmar were in such good shape you kinda figure the younger ones are too.

    Like much of the Batman cast she had a rare gift of being able to play comedy straight which is one of the toughest roles to play and she did it two nights a week. The first half of the third season with her is my favorite (before they cut the budget at the tail end) as I really feel she added a spark to the show.

    I think I'll check out the three part series set in London, "The Londinium Larcenies", "The Foggiest Notion", and "The Bloody Tower" which have a nice arch for her and some cool gothic set pieces.

    Truly she has return to be with the angels.

    I met Yvonne Craig once at a Chiller Theatre show in 2003. She was incredibly nice & we even spoke for several minutes as she had no line at the time. Batgirl was one of my favorite characters from Batman the TV show. R.I.P. :(

    A lovely lady and an able actress. Besides Batgirl I recall her from STAR TREK as the sexy Orion girl in the asylum and I recently saw her in an old episode of THE WILD, WILD WEST (I just finished watching the whole series Tuesday night).Rest In Peace.
