Another major change is the music, the producers reduced the amount of new music and included much of the background music from the now defunct Green Hornet series, and so pretty horrible bat fight music. The one good change beside Batgirl is Alfred, Alan Napier became the focus of series as both the confident of Batman and Robin but now Batgirl as well. If the show had lasted another season or two, he might have become Batgirl's sidekick, he also was given the chance to dress up and play a number of disguised characters in several episodes. Although, I don't understand why Penguin doesn't recognize him from all their past adventures together.
Actress Yvonne Craig “One of the reasons I think they hired me was because I had been a dancer. Howie Horwitz, who was the producer , and executive producer Bill Dozier both knew that. When I went into the office to talk to them, they also asked me if I had ever ridden a motorcycle, which indeed I had and owned one at the time. I did all of my stunts, and I also did all of the motorcycle riding. However, we never did any film mixing with rear screen projections. You never really saw me going fast down the street on that thing, as I recall, from a head-on point of view. I always was going somewhere, and they just filmed wherever it was I was going. “The motorcycle ride out of the secret exit was an interesting episode. It was the first day of shooting, and I knew the special effects man from somewhere else at Warner Brothers. We had worked together a long time. I had been practicing riding out because I was supposed to ride through a brick wall. It was set up like a long tunnel, and he said, ‘Look, if you hit this mark and you at that point absolutely stand on it and give it all you got, it will look like you are riding the wall down. It will be real exciting.’ I said, ‘Terrific!’ So, I did exactly as he said, but a little voice in my head said, keep your hand close to the brakes because, if something goes wrong, you would like to be able to hit the brakes. “Sure enough, the first shot of the day, I went tearing out, and the wall didn’t come down. It was made of plywood and I wouldn’t have liked to have gone through it. I hit the brakes, and I went skidding sideways, missing the wall by about an inch. Nobody on the other side knew what was going on. They figured somewhere along the line I had chickened out and decided not to do it at all. Anyway, it worked the second time around.”
