During the second season of the Batman television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, executive producer William “Bill” Dozier asked DC Comics editor for a female bat-heroine he might add to the program. Collaborating with artist Carmine Infantino and author Gardner Fox, Schwartz created Commissioner Gordon’s previously unmentioned daughter Barbara who became Batgirl when interrupted by a villain called the Killer Moth while on her way to a costume party.
Dozier cast Yvonne Craig (who famously played the green Orion dancing girl Marta in an episode of Star Trek) as Batgirl – Barbara Gordon and prepared this 7-and-a-half minute test footage while seeking renew for a third season on the ABC network. The show got renewed, although it lost one of its two nights per week and therefore lost its two-part episodes with the cliffhanger endings in the middle. This promo never aired and the Killer Moth, featured in this scene, never appeared in the series.
