Terrific TV Toys: '66 Barbara Gordon figure by Figures Toy Co.

With her pert little hairstyle, she was the adorable daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon, mentioned a couple times in foreshadowing toward the end of Season 2 of the 1960s "Batman," before her big debut in the first episode of Season 3. That debut was on September 14, 1967, and the episode was "Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin." We saw the lovely Yvonne Craig as Barbara first, kidnapped by the Penguin, before we saw her transform into the purple-metallic-clad crimefighter.

We lost Yvonne Craig last year, but her legacy as Batgirl -- and as Barbara Gordon -- lives on, half a century later. This week's episode of Terrific TV Toys shows you another installment in Figures Toy Company's line celebrating the "Batman" series ...

Next week: Batgirl!!!
