Batgirrrl, Batgirl! Batgirrrl, Batgirl!

Just a youthful Batgirl for you today. When I started posting this image, I wanted to find the lyrics to the Batgirl theme song from the Batman TV show. And here they are:

Batgirrrl, Batgirl! Batgirrrl, Batgirl!
Where do you come from, where do you go?
What is your scene, baby, we just gotta know.
Batgirrrl, Batgirl! Batgirrrl, Batgirl!
Are you a chick who fell in from outer space?
Or are you real with a tender warm embrace?
Yaaa, whose baby are you? Batgirrrl, Batgirl!
Yaaa, whose baby are you? Batgirl!

They just don't write theme songs like that anymore. :) If you would like to hear it, check it out here.

When in the name of the Almighty are they ever going to release this show on DVD?!

But, I digress...
Yay, Gene!

Gene Gonzales said...

Lud- I know they shot a pilot for Batgirl but that was it I think. Have they not released the Batman TV show on DVD?

Brian Jones said...

Nope, only the movie is out. Here is the problem as I know it...Warner Bros owns the charater Batman.....20th Century Fox produced the TV show...which means "NO SOUP FOR YOU!" Sucks really just do a 50/50 split already...lots of cash left on the table. Hell I have them all from when FX ran them but would gladly pay for DVD quality.

Great Batgirl Gene but now you got that song stuck in my head!

Karen said...

She's great! Thanks for posting the song. That was fun. :D

I remember watching that pilot a few years ago on the internet. It was a bad VHS copy but seeing Yvonne Craig put on the purple suit again certainly made up for it!

Gary M. Peiffer said...

Gee, I thought I saw lots of Batman TV show DVD's at Pittsburgh, maybe not an official release :-).

More to the relavent point, the Batgirl rendition by Gene is absolutely cute. Ebay bound perhaps?


Brian Jones said...

Gary- nope not official, and that may or may not be how I got my set years ago ;)

Yvonne Craig's Batgirl was, I think, my first celebrity crush. :)

Beautiful artwork, Gene!

Shane said...

Ooohhh, that is a cute Batgirl! I approve! Thanks for sharing Gene. The art that is, not so much the song!

I am pretty sure I watched the pilot somewhere, maybe a con Yvonne Craig was at?

Doesn't she fight Killer Moth in some sort of RIDICULOUS a library?

Shane said...

Thats what I am thinking of Lan. But I am not 100% about it.
