You’re gonna fly away,
Glad you’re going my way
I love it when we’re cruising together.

Cesar Romero and Eartha Kitt get their motors runnin’.

Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.

Daily Batman: Eartha-friendly

February 22, 2010

I can only bear to do this once every few months, but here is the fabulous Ms. Eartha Kitt as Catwoman.

Don’t get me wrong, she is a wonderful person, but when it comes to the character I am simply all about my Jul-Newms. The only reason I was able to do this today is that I already posted up Julie earlier (below, as a blonde, in a smashing corset along with a bat and a scarecrow in pinstripes — really, an out-of-sight picture on virtually every conceivable front) when I was nattering on about baseball and twenty-two.

Daily Batman: Eartha Kitt Catwoman, as promised

This hurts. It’s fun and it’s harmless … but it hurts my soul a little. I am sorry, Julie Newmar. I really hope we are still cool. I plan to make it up to you.

Eartha Kitt as Catwoman in the “Catwoman’s Dressed to Kill” episode of the Batman television series.

The Catwoman targets the fashion industry by first terrorizing a banquet honoring Batgirl and then attacking a fashion show. During the attack on the fashion show, Catwoman captures Batgirl and takes her back to her hideout where she threatens to kill her with a pattern cutter. She then tells Batman that if he attempts to rescue her that it will leave the visiting Queen Bess of Belgravia vulnerable for attack. Now the Caped Crusader must find a way to save Batgirl and prevent any harm to Queen Bess. — Written by Brian Washington {}

I have to confess, as much as I wanted to resist looking for video of this, everything about that description is ten thousand percent RIGHT and is ringing a whole lot of ekitty bells over here. Menacing that little purple-sporting, do-goody, Robin-humping moron with the threat of slicing her face with a freaking pattern cutter? Mmm, mmm. That … that is right. That is just exactly what. Everything is right about that. I will look in to this further.

Daily Batman: Aim at Heaven and you will get Eartha thrown in

“Aim at Heaven and you will get Earth thrown in.” — C.S. Lewis

Yesterday a reader asked for some Eartha Kitt as Catwoman. I am so vehemently pro my Jul-Newms that it was tough for me to transition straight in to that so here is my sidewise segue, friendoh, and thanks for reading!

Debra Wilson on MadTV as neighbor from hell Catwoman.: “One million dollars.” “What?!” “One million dollars to get your rrrrrake back.” “I could just buy another one for fifteen bucks.” “Nevertheless!”

When I first saw this like 15 years ago, I almost died laughing. It’s less bearable as an adult. I am so sorry for slighting MadTV’s writers, who I’m sure are gifted folks, but … um… this show was just never good enough. Just never even at all good enough.

With which mean and unnecessary judgment I will now slink off to run some afternoonish errands. The end!
