Zsa Zsa Gabor dead at 99

Spent her last five years on life support, according to the story.

I didn't think Minerva was as bad a character as some people do. I'd rather have Zsa Zsa basically playing herself than Barbara Rush playing Snidely Whiplash in drag. Zsa Zsa also was the original choice for Marsha (not surprising, given all the 'darlings' in the script) and I think she would have been good in that.

The Minerva episode had a better story than the Joker episode where he tries to steal Bruce Wayne's intellect. The same kind of idea, but Minerva did it better.

RIP Zsa Zsa.

RIP, Ms. Gabor

Who ELSE always got Zsa Zsa mixed up with her sister Eva as they grew up? Much of my youth was spent SWEARING Lisa Douglas was the bad guy on Batman! ;)

I like Zsa Zsa...she was great as Mrs. Douglas on "The Beverly Hillbillies"===well, not really Zsa Zsa, that was Eva...well no, it wasn't "The Beverly Hillbillies, it was "Green Acres." Although there WAS that one Christmas episode where they all appeared on "Petticoat Junction" with Bea Benadaret...WOW! Now I'm really confused...I'd better take my toaster in to Sam Drucker to get it to go from a five to a three. :lol:

I was in the same boat. There's no doubt they were sisters.

Zsa Zsa taps Sanders on the shoulder : Guess who ?

George Sanders : I've been counting down the yrs waiting for you up here and now you're finally here. You lived to be 99 , most impressive.

RIP.......

You are right. Still a lousy episode in my opinion.

"I don't pick up man. Man pick me up"....I still think that's one of the funniest lines ever said on the show. Batman's face when Minerva says that is hilarious.

R.I.P. Zsa Zsa.

One of the best in-jokes in the "Batman '66" comic series!
