Storyline

A variety of low-budget but imaginative shows introduced by a rock band, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs. "Electra-Woman and Dynagirl" follows two spandex-clad beskirted crime fighters. "Wonderbug" features a trio of teenagers whose run-down Schlep Car is magically transformed into a puppet dune buggy. In "Dr. Shrinker," a mad scientist shrinks a group of castaways on his isle and they fight to survive. In "The Lost Saucer", two androids and their two human friends try to return to Earth. The 1977-1978 Season featured more of "Wonderbug," plus "Magic Mongo" and "Bigfoot and Wildboy." Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Live Action Kids Show With Multiple Parts Ruled
4 May 1999 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This show was wonderful. It had a variety of characters in different scenarios. I loved "Dr. Shrinker" and "Electra Woman". The band was great too. I remember "Wonder Bug" as fun, and wasn't there a segment with Big Foot?
