Tis that time of year peeps. You know the one I mean. It's a time for friends and family, lots of food and gift giving, all that fun holiday stuff.

But how did the Bat and the Cat celebrate their Christmas in the Golden Age of comics? Well, long before they were married and living under the same roof with a very young daughter, they spent it doing the one thing they do best! Playing Cat and Mouse...or in this case...Bat and Cat!

From Batman #39, our story begins like any other Christmas tale would:

And so Batman and Robin begin their investigation on their "catnapping" case. Among the stolen kitties are a red persian cat named 'Scarlet O'Hair,' a white cat named 'Whitey,' and a tailless cat named 'Tag.'

Like the cats' owners, Batman and Robin don't know why Catwoman chose those specific cats. However, they catch their first break when they located Tag (the tailless cat), who had a gas-filled tail attached to him to knock out anyone that got in the Catwoman's way! And of course, they meet up with the Boss Lady herself!

Oh hey! Blonde Selina is BLONDE! There *is* truth to her hair-colour-changing after all!

But wait! Don't kill the Catwoman's love interest Batman! Without Batman, how ever will the Catwoman get her yarn to play with?

And the Catwoman's next gig...The White Knight arrives!

"You know...mistletoe can be deadly if you eat it."

"But a kiss...can be even deadlier if you mean it."

Oh Classic BatCat never gets old. ♥

And of course, the story ends with Catwoman presumably going to jail (and escaping), and everyone gets their cats back.

For some reason I was expecting Batman and Catwoman to be fighting the Ghosts of Christmas but this Golden Age story really delivered the explosive interaction between this future couple that we have learned to love. Thanks for posting it, Aeka.

By the way, this blonde Catwoman seems to remind me of Elizabeth Kane, the first Batgirl.

After seeing a certain scene in "Oz", I'm praying that is the case. Giving super-villains long nails is never a good idea.

Poor Robin, out skiing with bare legs! I notice Batman is all bundled up... what's up with that?

Love the white Batsuit! In a weird way.

I never knew she was a blond. You just learn something new every day around here. :-)

God help me. I keep hearing "The Fire Rises" chant on streaming mental audio whenever I read Batman scans. I'd like to think it adds to the lolz.
