Holy Acts of Congress! Batgirl Wants Equal Pay

Most of the Batman cast was reunited in 1974 for the PSA message for equal pay for men and woman. When the 1989 Batman movie came out a lot of footage came out that was Batman related including this commercial.

I do vaguely recall seeing this when it originally was airing although I was about 4 years old. Every bit of Batman footage that had been archived came out of the wood work in 1989. I remember seeing this on a compilation tape of various Batman footage called 'Batmania'.

William Dozier came back to do the Desmond Doomsday narration, Burt Ward as Robin, and Yvonne Craig as Batgirl. All reprised their roles for this Public Service announcement, but no Adam West. I've never been able to find out why he didn't participate. Maybe he was still fighting the type casting thing. Batman was portrayed by Richard Gautier, who was best known as Hymie the Robot on Get Smart. It's fun to watch. Check it out.
