Hope you enjoyed the ADAM WEST and BURT WARD TV Guide articles that I posted the other day. Here's a November 1967 TV Guide article that focuses on YVONNE CRAIG. As we all know (or should know), YVONNE starred as BATGIRL on the 1960s TV series BATMAN, which also starred ADAM WEST and BURT WARD as BATMAN and ROBIN, the Dynamic Duo. I'm also posting a couple of BATGIRL photos that YVONNE CRAIG signed for me a few years ago. Click on the article for reading, and click on the BATGIRL photos for larger views! (BATGIRL/YVONNE CRAIG article courtesy of artist AL BIGLEY)
Check out YVONNE CRAIG's website at yvonnecraig.com today!
I've been posting quite a few of my sketch cards lately, and thought I'd post another artist's sketch card today. It's PAUL McCARTNEY of THE BEATLES, created by my wife, LESLIE. I think she did a terrific job! Beautiful work, Baby...I love you! xoxo

I've been meaning to do a posting about this for the last couple of days. I recently read that FRANK COGHLAN, JR. passed away on September 7. FRANK COGHLAN, JR. played BILLY BATSON in the 1941 Republic movie serial, ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL. I'm a great fan of this movie serial and was sorry to hear that FRANK COGHLAN, JR. had passed away. He was 93. Here's more from the L.A. TIMES.

Here's an illustration I did in 2006 for a public domain DVD release of DODO THE KID FROM OUTER SPACE cartoons. The series was produced by HALAS AND BATCHELOR in 1965. Incidentally, JOSEPH E. LEVINE was involved in the production of DODO. LEVINE was the Executive Producer of Rankin/Bass' MAD MONSTER PARTY.

It's great living only a 45-minute drive away from DISNEYLAND. Leslie and I are already making plans for our next visit...which will be soon. Love this vintage GREYHOUND BUS LINE poster that advertises DISNEYLAND as one of their Los Angeles destinations!

Here's another cool WOODY WOODPECKER original cartoon painting that was used for a puzzle. I believe this is from the early 1970s. That's KNOTHEAD & SPLINTER stealing WOODY's pancakes.
