Equal Pay for Batgirl!

Keeping the "superheroes as spokespersons" theme of the past week going, here is a fun PSA from the early 70s featuring Batman, Robin, and Batgirl for, of all things, the US Department of Labor. In 60s TV show style, Batigrl runs to the aid of Batman and Robin as they sit in peril, only to hear Batgirl rant about having to save lives for less pay than the Bat-boys. A valid point, but the timing seems a bit off. Hello, about to get blowed up! Can we talk later?

The fun clip features Yvonne Craig and Burt Ward reprising their TV roles as Batgirl and Robin, while Batman is not played by Adam West, but rather by longtime character actor Dick Gautier.

This clip was posted to YouTube courtesy of the Bat-Blog. There's a lot of great stuff there, so check it out!

I'm off on another mini-vacation the rest of the week, but I many squeeze one more post tomorrow before I go. Otherwise, I'll see you Sunday!
