They've all been great, but Eartha Kitt  was fantastic in the TV show.

Julie was in the show. The best of the show. But Eartha being there was groundbreaking at the time.

Good on them both. But Julie...I mean...GODDAMN!

I had an autographed picture of Adam West hanging on my wall in 1968, so I may be a bit biased here.  But I'm with subby, and I'm afraid you're going to have to fight me too.  Sorry about that.

My father was not a fan, but I do remember him joining us for that episode.  It was... unusual.

Eartha Kitt.

Hell, even her last name cries "cat"!

Eartha Kitt. What a wonderful woman, wonderful voice.

I wonder how many kittens were killed because of Catwoman in that suit...

As did Mark Ronson, much to the embarrassment of Michelle's kids.

You're all wrong. Lee Merriweather from the feature film was easily the best Catwoman.

Not only that, but Eartha Kitt literally oozed sex.  They had to wash the sex out of that costume every time she wore it.  They had to come up with a special dry cleaning process just to handle that, otherwise men would spontaneously ejaculate when she walked by, and women would get Pam splooshes.

The article failed to mention her role in L'il Abner.  Stupifyin' Jones.

I so very much love that video.

But seriously, can we all agree that even the "worst" Catwoman in any of the live action/CGI media was still likely responsible for a kitten genocide of epic proportions?

/or does that say more about me than it says about Catwoman?
//perhaps I've said too much

Anne Hathaway isn't quite as good, but she did put in a decent effort.
