In Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders (2016), when Penguin hit Batman on his head, he sees three Catwoman instead of one in his Concussion state:

But these three Catwomen are of different hair colour and ethnicity. But why? Is it a nod to some comics book alternate Catwoman versions or a reference to the 1960's live action show?

I don't know, but I suspect it is a reference to the 1960s Batman Series.

Catwoman was portrayed by Julie Newmar in seasons one and two and by Eartha Kitt in season three. Also by Lee Meriwether in the Batman movie.

  • Left one doesn't look like Lee to me, still a nice answer

  • The great thing about the original Batman is that the writers always had their tongue firmly planed in cheek. This scene is hysterical for those hardcore enough to recall all 3 versions of Catwoman. Dec 6, 2018 at 15:55
