BATMAN ’66 WEEK: She’s the cat’s meow…
It’s BATMAN ’66 WEEK — celebrating the 50th anniversary of the show’s final episode! For the complete index of features, click here.
Here’s some purr-fectly wonderful news: Lee Meriwether, the 1966 Batman film’s very own Catwoman, will be attending East Coast Comicon next month.
If you’ve never met Ms. Meriwether, you’re in for a treat. She’s warm and engaging and tells terrific stories of her time on Batman (plus Star Trek, The Time Tunnel and Barnaby Jones, to name just a few shows and movies).
I’ll be hosting a panel with the erstwhille Miss Kitka and I’m very much looking forward to chatting with her at the show. And you should bring your questions, too, because we’ll be doing a Q&A.
East Coast Comicon, of which we are sponsors, is now three days (April 27, 28 and 29) at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J. It’s a short Batmobile ride from the real Gotham City — New York. (Date and time of the panel TBD.)
In addition to Ms. Meriwether, the show is shaping up to be another really good one. Other media guests include Micky Dolenz and the casts of Starsky & Hutch and The Warriors, among others. Comics pros include Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Roy Thomas, Howard Chaykin, Mike Zeck and plenty more.

I got to meet her last November in Milwaukee. She was so nice and took a photo with me and I got her autograph as well. Burt was also at the show and he was such a great guy also.
