It's the 1960s, and Yvonne Craig is being dressed for her role as Batgirl for the campy ABC TV show, Batman. Though you can't tell from this photo, Batgirl wore a purple and yellow outfit. It gets better, she also rode around on a purple motorcycle - just like Prince did. How cool is that?

Craig has been called a pioneer of female superheroes for television. She also appeared on Star Trek as the green-skinned Orion slave girl Marta in the episode "Whom Gods Destroy." I haven't seen the episode, but I assume she gets busy with Capt Kirk.

Marilyn has got to be my favorite of The Munsters. My second favorite is either Grandpa or Eddie Munster. Named for Marilyn Monroe, and played by several different actresses, the deal with Marilyn Munster was she was considered homely and unattractive by the rest of her monster family members.

Marilyn was originally played by Beverley Owen, who took the role because she thought the show  would never succeed. But it did and she had to move from New York to Los Angeles. On numerous occasions, she was seen depressed and crying in the studios. She was fired but went on to marry future Sesame Street writer and director Jon Stone.
