I think it was more a thing for those of us guys who were discovering the difference between boys and girls when the show was running.
Oh, like Julie Newmar vs. Eartha Kitt, you mean?
and Lee Meriwether for a wild card. http://www.gayse.net/wp-content/uplo...Meriwether.jpg
Lee Meriwether is not even in the running . . . .

Well, I've never seen an episode of Stingray, so I'll have to stick with Lady Penelope.

I think the better contest is Agent 99 vs. Emma Peel.

Ooh, that's a toughie, but Emma wins . . . .

Here's one: Batgirl or Catwoman? (60s TV show, of course.)

I have to go with 99 there. Diana Rigg was striking, but Barbara Feldon had the amazing capacity to be the sweet girl next door and the smoldering sex goddess at the same time.

Assuming you mean Newmar Catwoman, that's a really close contest, but I'd give a very slight edge to Batgirl. She was the one thing that made the generally dismal third season worthwhile.

Wow, I never thought about 99 versus Emma Peel. That's like an irresistible force meeting an irresistible force.

Yvonne Craig versus Julie Newmar is a tough one, too. I'd give the slight edge to Yvonne Craig there.

I'd have to take urbandefault's side on this. Darrin drank the way he did because that's just what guys did back then, at least on T.V.
Bingo. I doubt that Darrin's alcohol consumption was supposed to be at all excessive when the show is produced. The show was just reflecting the era, when every well-equipped suburban home had its own bar and Madison Avenue types like Darrin drank that way as a matter of course.

Watch the original 1950s version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and notice just how much casual drinking is going on in the early scenes when everything is still "normal." You apparently couldn't drop in on a neighbor without being offered a stiff drink and then another drink "for the road." All of which is taken for granted by movie and its characters. It was just part of everyday life.

Darrin Stevens would have felt right at home.
As would Don Draper and the other characters on Mad Men. That doesn't change the fact that Darin is a dick to his wife, and that she should leave him (I would if I were her.)

Now I'm imagining Marta the insane Orion dancer vs. Eleen, who just a very short time after giving birth, knocks McCoy out with a rock and climbs down a mountain...

Since somebody upthread introduced animated characters, how about Wilma vs. Betty?
