    Eartha Kitt, better known to the fans of the 60's TV series Batman as Cat woman died today.

    She also sang the 1953 version of the song "Santa baby" which I heard played on the radio just yesturday.

    That is a Cat-tastrophe.

    Best Cat Woman ever.

    She did the voice of Yzma in "The Emperor's New Groove" and she was hilarous; by far the best Disney villianess since Cruella DeVille!

    I am old enough to remember her as Cat Woman, and she was brilliant.

    So Sad that at her age she died from this awful illness, but as long as we have "Santa Baby" she will never really be gone.

    Amazing woman.
