30 Beautiful Photos of ‘Batgirl’ Yvonne Craig in Bikini During the 1960s

Yvonne Craig was a fantasy come true. Trained as a ballet dancer and member of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo throughout the 1950s, Craig became best known to American audiences as Batgirl on the Adam West-led Batman seres. The actress added a much-needed KAPOW of femininity to the dynamic duo’s camp exploits, an attitude that amplified her natural grace and beauty.

Although the high-kicking female superhero failed to halt the decline, she cut a colorful dash as she performed her own stunts and delivered “pows” and “zaps” alongside Adam West and Burt Ward as the caped crusader and his sidekick. Batgirl also had her own cantankerous sidekick, a parrot called Charlie, and rode a purple motorcycle with white lace trim.

Before Batman, Craig appeared alongside Elvis Presley in It Happened at the World’s Fair (1963) and Kissin’ Cousins (1964). She also appeared alongside Frankie Avalon in Ski Party (1965), ballet-danced during a passionate scene with James Coburn in the James Bond parody In Like Flint (1967) and starred as a Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist in the unintentionally funny low-budget sci-fi film Mars Needs Women (1967).

Here, below is a gallery of 30 fascinating color photographs of Yvonne Craig in bikini during the 1960s.
