Storyline

At the Gotham City library, Barbara Gordon helps Bruce Wayne find a book on butterflies so he can prove a point to a friend, a millionaire explorer. As Bruce and his youthful ward, Dick Grayson, are leaving they spot the villainous Killer Moth and three of his henchmen and, suspecting they are up to no good, determine to return as their superhero alter-egos, Batman and Robin. While the Caped Crusaders are donning their costumes, the criminal quartet knock out the millionaire, lock Barbara in an alcove and prepare to spirit their victim away. When the Dynamic Duo attempt to capture the crooks, they are encased in Killer Moth's silk cocoon. Is this the end of our Gotham City heroes? And why does a beautiful librarian have a cowl and a cape hanging in a convenient closet? Written by David Bassler

Nice introduction of Batgirl.
5 May 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a TV short that serves as a pilot of some sort to introduce Batgirl to the the Batman TV-series, where we see her help Batman and Robin by battling villain Killer Moth.

Her alter-ego librarian is Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon, portrayed famously by Yvonne Craig. I think she did a good job in the role, if not a bit campy at times. But, that is OK as the role was portrayed by Craig in the 1960s.

It was neat seeing Gordon secretly change into her Batgirl costume that is hidden in a secret rotating closet in the library and it was neat seeing her team up with the Dynamic Duo. I think it is three heads better than two, as the addition of Batgirl to the series made the show more captivating and made each episode less cliché and less predictable.

I grew up watching the TV show with my cousin, who introduced me to the series. And, it wasn't years later until I finally saw this TV-short on YouTube. It was a great find!
