Because when she fell into the water, the current sent her up the river! (I shall now duck for cover)Gothamite wrote:In Episode 74-75 '' That Darn Catwoman / Scat ! Darn Catwoman '', Catwoman is supposed to be dead after falling into the West River or something like that but in her next pair of episodes ( Episode 83-84 '' Catwoman Goes to College / Batman Displays his Knowledge '' ), she is in Prison. Hmmmm, why ?
There's no hard evidence of what happened to her on screen. In fact, Gordon admits no body was found, but he could not imagine anyone surviving a fall like that, while Batman considers that the fall may have cost her "one of her lives."Gothamite wrote:In Episode 74-75 '' That Darn Catwoman / Scat !

History should have clued in everyone that Catwoman and death are never going to be tied to the hip, since they once thought Catwoman died by falling in the bottomless pit at the end of season one's "Better Luck Next Time." However, in chronological terms, it would not be long before she returned in the movie and early in season 2 very much alive and well.
Catwoman is a Purr-Fect example.
March 1966 she tries to drop Robin in a tiger pit and puts Batman in a Lady or The Tiger trap along with assorted grand thefts.
September 1966 back after having been presumed dead she tries to fry the duo under giant magnifying glasses and steal a couple of million in violins and cash
December 1966 despite several attempted murders and grand lefts in the last 9 months she is paroled ?!? and tries to turn the duo's brains to mush in a giant echo chamber. Steals the voices of Chad and Jeremy, the police commissioner and two TV personalities ( 5 counts assault) and tries to extort millions from the British government
December 1966 apparently breaks jail (not specifically mentioned) and joins up with Sandman.
Tries to strand Police Woman Mooney and Robin in her maze in which they would starve (2 counts attempted murder) plus the various crimes of Sandman to which she would be an accomplice.(May have won some leniency for divulging Sandman's caper to the police)
January 1966 apparently breaks jail again (not specifically mentioned) kidnaps and drugs Robin (assault) masterminds several grand thefts threatens Batman's life if he doesn't join her (assault although Batman has a plan) and breaks into the mint.
February 1966b ( in the last month she has apparently come back from the dead and been imprisoned.} Despite her assorted crimes including violating parole in the last year she is again paroled!?!.
There is no way to reconcile all these events as if they all happened. You have to pretend the previous episodes never occurred.
