One of the few TV super heroes not derived from a comic book. However, D.C. Comics published a short-lived comic book during the show's second season. 30 years later, DC Comics acquired the rights to the character and created a new version who is a definite part of their regular comics universe, but as the consort of the seemingly reformed supervillain nemesis of Captain Marvel, Black Adam. This character was killed off, but the magic amulet is being used by a new host. As a tribute to the alter-ego of the original TV version of the character, the 2006-2007 comic book version was given the secret identity of Adrianna Tomaz. See more »
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 »

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). 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? Some of her fans from that 1970's Saturday Morning show would liked to know.
