12. 4 pts- Honey WestPjazzy was the only player to get this correct. Played by Anne Francis in the show of the same name (which ran from 1965-1966), Honey West was one of the first female private eyes on TV. This character is shown holding what type of pet, which is a member of the cat family? 4 bonus pts- Ocelot
13.  2 pts- Catwoman/Selina Kyle
14.  2 pts- Princess Leia
15. 6 pts- Wonder Woman. Props to the few of you who got this correct.The photo above is a scene from the 1974 TV-movie which starred Cathy Lee Crosby in the title role. Because the character's conception didn't fit with the way we all envision Wonder Woman, this TV movie was included in the book What Were They Thinking: The 100 Dumbest Events in TV History. In addition to bearing no physical resemblance to the Wonder Woman we all know, she also doesn't wear WW's trademark outfit. Instead, she's decked out in a costume that makes her look like (as the book says) a patriotic stewardess.
