I have learned through the process of restoring the "lost" stories just how time-consuming re-organizing this site will be. The Batgirl Bat-Trap Homepage! grew like Topsy, with no long-term plan nor idea the site would last for more than a decade. Material was stored - thanks to helpful collaborators - at various locations.
I am hoping to have everything up and ready to go by Wednesday, November 18. There are some great stories in the works, as well as an Omake I'm sure you'll enjoy. New vid files are forthcoming and I will strive to keep you updated on any Batgirl news. As always, I depend on the site's great contributors for new, original, material.
In the meantime, you can help by (1) being patient; and (2) letting me know if you come across any broken links. Of course, during construction broken links will happen from time to time, but if a link remains broken over several days, an e-mail letting me know would be most appreciated.
While we anticipate next season, however, don't overlook epaddon's fantastic on-going story! As internet connections have generally become faster, we're getting more aggressive in the number of pictures included to enhance your story experience. We hope you enjoy!
THANK YOU for your continuing interest!

The site also contains suggestions for who would have made or would make great Special Guest Villains or Villainesses on the show. We have the greatest respect for these performers, as well as for our other "Guest Stars." Their images and names are used without their permission, but in tribute to them as well.

I thank KISSFAN69 for all the images he has provided to the site. Further thanks go to Anton Kisiel at the old Batgirls of Gotham site for the new, uh, "New" graphics he created, which he generously lets me use. By the way, this site is best viewed at 640x480, True Color (24 bit).
Although I try not to make it a habit, sometimes I do use images copied from other sites on the Internet. If you are the owner of such an image and object, please let me know and it will promptly be removed.
Also, let me re-emphasize that neither I nor any of the site's contributors make any money off this website. This is our homage to the creators of the 1960's Batman TV series, to the late Bob Kane - the creator of Batman - and to the comic book writers and artists. All rights to make a profit off these images, stories and characters belong to them (or to 20th Century Fox or Warner Brothers, I suppose!)
A special tribute goes to all the wonderful actors and actresses who played the heroes and villains in the television series (and to those we'd like to have seen or hope to someday see on a revival! ;>) but especially, of course, to Yvonne Craig. She has a wonderful attitude about her portrayal of Batgirl, as evidenced by the fact that she signed a picture I bought at her website (see our Links), to the Siamese Human Knot's #1 Fan!
Please write to me with any comments, suggestions or criticisms. We are always on the lookout for new stories, art, trap analyses and other material.
Brad is no longer actively involved in the site.
Out of respect for all his help in getting The Batgirl Bat-Trap Homepage!
started, though, here is his original message:
Holy Bondage, Batman!! What's happening?! Batgirl's been captured by yet another evil, but creative, villain? . . . YES!! :>)
Welcome to Brad and twof's Batgirl Bat-Trap Homepage! dedicated to our (and perhaps your!) favorite heroine, Batgirl - and her bound-ful adventures at the hands of Gotham City's various bad guys (and gals!).
If you're like us, watching the spunky Yvonne Craig play a crime fighter in a purple, skin-tight costume was a treat in itself. As we and our open-minded psyches grew up (?), however, a passion was born which could not be denied - watching this petite beauty get into lots of TROUBLE!!
Fortunately, out of the 26 episodes (that's all?!) that she made during the show, there were more than enough opportunities to see her in dire straits, e.g., tied into a knot, dunked in caviar, strapped to a huge rocket, zapped into two dimensions . . . just to name a few!
I want to especially thank the sprightly, gifted, beautiful, warm, charming, funny, leggy, confident, amazing, sexy, full-of-life, giving and awesome YVONNE CRAIG for her incredible portrayal of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl. If anyone of you has had the privilege of meeting this dynamic woman - you know these adjectives are more than deserved. Thank you again, Yvonne - YOU'RE WONDERFUL!!
