Yvonne Craig, the original Batgirl in the splashy '60s Batman TV series, passed away on Monday, and sincere condolences have been pouring in from around the world.  While many remember her as Commissioner Gordon's spunky daughter, Barbara, beaming into their homes every week on her purple motorcycle,  Bat-icon Adam West worked side by side with her in the final season of the campy, hyper-colored series that ran on ABC. 

In memorium, West shared this vintage behind-the-scenes shot of the two crimefighters relaxing between takes on the Hollywood set circa 1967, along with a touching tribute to his friend and co-star:
