Storyline

When a archaeology teacher unearthed an ancient Egyptian amulet, she learns that the item was a magic piece of great power. Researching the amulet's past, she decides to use it for its original purpose. Now, whenever there is trouble, she dons the amulet and chants, "Oh Mighty Isis". With that, she transforms into the Egyptian goddess, Isis, and battles evil with the power of that deity. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

According to series executive producer Lou Scheimer, the show was created because Filmation wanted to have a female counterpart to Captain Marvel (of Shazam!), but they wanted to own the character outright, rather than paying National Periodicals to license the Mary Marvel character. See more »

Goofs

Because of the frequent use of stock footage continuity errors would often be present. Perhaps the most noticeable example is completely different backgrounds before and after Andrea's transformation into Isis. Her first action after transforming was to take flight and a handful of stock takeoffs recur repeatedly throughout the series. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: And so, unknown even to her closest friends, Rick Mason and Cindy Lee, she became a dual person: Andrea Thomas, teacher; and Isis, dedicated foe of evil, defender of the weak, champion of truth and justice!

Whatever happened to Joanna Cameron? Commemorating "Isis" on its 40th Anniversary
3 October 2001 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I remember this show like it was yesterday;a modern day high school teacher that see trouble coming and goes into a room has a secret ring on her finger and says,"Oh,mighty Isis!" and changes into a Egyptian princess named Isis with superpowers who helps out kids who get into trouble and fights off evil doers. It came on Saturday Mornings around 10:00am and I can remember this show being on. This was a dynamite show to watch by the way since it only was on for two seasons and went right off the air(and its reruns) for much of the decade(as part of the Shazam/Isis Hour). However,there was Isis who comes out at the end of the show to give a message or two about certain things(which became part of a Filmation staple and a big winner during its run on CBS). The series lasted two seasons on Saturday Mornings from September 6, 1975 until October 23, 1976 and it produced 22 episodes where CBS repeated it entirely until 1979 when it was combined "The Shazam-Isis Hour". Since the show's star was a fashion model before she became an actress,Joanna Cameron was a knockout to watch as Isis. She was beautiful. By the way,whatever happened to her after that? After her stint as "Isis" Joanna Cameron went on to star in the short-lived series based on "Spider-Man",and from there was a guest star in several television shows until she retired from show business and Hollywood altogether in the 1980's. Today,she does public appearances but she left Hollywood for the hotel marketing business based in Hawaii.
