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.
The segments seemed to be a none-too-subtle homage to the Batman TV show from the ’60s, as you’ll see in this clip of the opening theme. It’s funky and full of helpful back story!
Anyway, let’s get right to the tepid action of the three-reel Electra Woman and Dyna Girl View-Master set (H3 002, ©1977 for those keeping score).
