See Original Catwoman Julie Newmar Now at 88

There have been many actors who have played the DC comics character Catwoman over the years, with the latest being ZoĆ« Kravitz in the new blockbuster, The Batman. 

But, today we're going all the way back to the beginning.

The first onscreen Catwoman was Julie Newmar, who played the role in the '60s TV series, Batman.

Newmar appeared on the first two seasons of the show in 1966 and 1967, while Eartha Kitt took over in Season 3.

Newmar has played many other parts besides Catwoman on the big and small screens and on stage, but the role is something that will always be associated with her.

In fact, she even returned to it 50 years after first playing the part, when she provided the voice of Catwoman in two recent projects.
