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: With this amulet you and your descendants are endowed by the goddess Isis with the powers of the animals and the elements. You will soar as the falcon soars, run with the speed of gazelles and command the elements of sky and earth.

early empowered superfemale on TV
27 September 2002 | by (New Orleans, LA) – See all my reviews

Entertaining show for kids with drop-dead-gorgeous JoAnna Cameron as a teacher who changes into the goddess Isis to fight evil. The show came on the air in the mid-70's, during what was then a public uproar over violence on children's television, so Isis defeated most of her villains non-violently and offered a moral at the end of the show. The show only lasted one season but was re-run for many years after that.

The show caught on in South America when it was rebroadcast there in the 1980s, and "Isis" has many Brazilian fans.

The show is mostly valuable today for the fun cornball factor and for the fact that Ms. Cameron, who bears a striking resemblance to Catherine Zeta-Jones, was a knockout who wore short skirts and had great legs. Neo-pagans and Wiccans will find much to raise an eyebrow over, as the goddess aspect is treated with unusual respect for the time and place the show came out.

JoAnna Cameron retired from show business in the 80's and went into nursing, specializing in geriatrics. Recently she has made appearances at science fiction and TV nostalgia conventions and by all reports is still a gracious and beautiful woman.
