The others who have played Catwoman

Webmaster’s note: This is a list of Catwoman, as she appeared in different television productions. Most of these are in animated television series. This is not a complete list, because we might not have obtained all the information from all of the series. If there is any role or actress who has been overlooked, please contact me. This page will be revised as needed.

 

Catwoman 1968

Jane Webb

The Batman/Superman Hour (1968)
CBS

This series aired on CBS on Saturday mornings in the fall of 1968, just months after the 1966 live-action Batman was cancelled. This animated series, unlike its predecessor, was a no-nonsense action series.

The Catwoman in this series, Jane Webb, had entered movies around 1939-40, dropped out from entertaining, then resumed her career in 1966. Aside of one live appearance that year in Family Affair, Webb’s work consisted of voice-over work for this and other Filmation cartoons.

 

This is the cell drawing of the Catwoman in the 1968 series “The Batman/Superman Hour.” It represented a change from the Julie Newmar/Lee Meriwether/Eartha Kitt version seen on the live-action 1966 series that had been cancelled just months before this series aired. This version was the one that looked more like the comic book version of the time.
   

 

   

Melendy Britt

The New Adventures of Batman (1977)
Tarzan and the Super 7 (1978)
CBS

This series, which debuted in February 1977, featured Adam West and Burt Ward voicing the roles they made famous in their 1966 series. Houston native Melendy Britt provided the voice of the Feline Fatale in this series. The art work here mirrored the cell of the 1968 series, shown above.

Adrienne Barbeau

Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
Syndicated

Born in 1945, Adrienne Barbeau’s first major role was as the daughter of Bea Arthur in the CBS comedy Maude (1972-77). Barbeau’s rendition of the Feline Fatale showed a side of Selina Kyle not shown so much: Her role as an animal activist. Still, her character crossed the line and got into trouble.

The show was produced from 1992 to 1995, and featured the talents of Kevin Conroy and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (The F.B.I.).

*“Perchance to Dream” was also the name of a notable 1959 episode of The Twilight Zone. This episode starred Richard Conte—and Suzanne Lloyd as Maya the Cat Girl.

 

   

Maggie Baird

Birds of Prey (2002-2003)
WB

Her presence as Catwoman was minimal, restricted to the opening credits. One sad fact: In this series, Catwoman—who is the mother of Helena Wayne (Huntress)—is murdered by The Joker.

Gina Gershon

The Batman (2004)
Airing 10:30 a.m. Saturday on The WB

Born in 1962, Gina Gershon has already had an established career as a movie actress (Pretty in Pink, Showgirls). Here is a description, provided by Comics Continuum: “Catwoman, a.k.a. Selina Kyle, is Gotham's greatest cat burglar. She gets her name not only because of her profession but also because of her cat-like qualities. Cunning, stealthy and mysterious, she is neither super hero nor arch villain. Unlike most of The Batman's foes, Catwoman is not out for mass destruction or domination of Gotham. She's in it for the money ... and the thrill of the hunt. She has even been known to do the occasional good deed—when it's in her best interest. Despite The Batman's efforts to capture her, Catwoman seems to enjoy her encounters with the Dark Knight, proving to be a flirtatious rival.”
