Celebrity Dating Game Week: Win a date with "Batgirl" (1967)

I actually had this next clip up before, when I reviewed The Dating Game, but as memory serves, it ended up being taken down. As part of our week-long look back at celebrity-themed episodes, we have it back.

Yvonne Craig had just joined the cast of Batman when some network executive thought it'd be a good idea to have the actress appear on The Dating Game.

Coincidentally, more than a decade later, Batgirl herself was being courted in the comics by a soldier on leave in the 1-shot short, "A Date With Batgirl". I wonder, then, if this particular episode might've been some form of inspiration.

No rating.
