Batgirl with pointed mask - Yvonne CraigYvonne Craig Batgirl from Batman TV Show

Batman TV Series

The original Batgirl costume had a face-piece with a pointed cheek mask which was redesigned after a 7-minute Batgirl/Batman test mini-episode was made.

The rounded shape (shown below) was changed because the long-pointed version was leaving welt marks on Yvonne Craig's face. The bat-cycle was also altered, along with other small details.

The introduction of the character of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl is credited with helping the TV series, which had been steadily losing ratings, with making it through to the end of its third season while facing tough competition on other channels (Lost in Space and The Virginian were time-slot opponents).
