Ephemera
This is it folks -- the thrilling, action-packed, spandex-clad conclusion to the epic showdown between the heroic (if not slightly befuddled) duo of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl and the teeth-clenching villainy of Spider Lady! In case you've just joined us, you can catch up on the first two reels here and here. #1 -- Still disguised, Spider Lady took the sacred idol. Wait, what's this about an idol? When the hell did this enter the story? This might just be the first MacGuffin in View-Master history. #2 -- Dynagirl's ElectraComp went dead. #3 -- Dynagirl was amazed to see two Loris! What! Two Electra Women?! Now we'll get half the investigating done! #4 -- But Spider Lady changed back to real self. You know, if Electra Woman did a little less posing she'd get a lo...

Here's one of the more bizarre View-Master reel sets in my collection. It was issued to promote the short-lived live action series Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, which ran for just 16 episodes in 1976. It was one of the segments aired during the first season of The Krofft Supershow, which itself only lasted for two years. Electra Woman and Dyna Girl followed the adventures of two comely reporters for Newsmaker magazine -- Lori/Electra Woman (Deidre Hall) and Judy/Dyna Girl (Judy Strangis). Over the course of the series the pair battled an array of colorful villains like the Pharaoh, the Sorcerer, Glitter Rock, Ali Baba, Spider Lady, and the Empress of Evil.
