Yvonne Craig R.I.P.

We were gutted here at Anorak Thing H.Q. yesterday to learn of the passing of  actress Yvonne Craig. Best known for role as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl on the "Batman" TV series among others Yvonne was my first TV crush (or was it the British girl on the "Bugaloos"?).  She will always be remembered for her amazing backcombed do she wore as Barbara Gordon, her perky onscreen personality and a great appearance on "The Dating Game" in 1967 looking mod as hell and acting every bit the confident, intelligent, liberated woman (sadly those tools at YouTube yanked down the clip).

Rest in peace.
