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 &view=simple&sort=alpha" >Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Remembering the Past
17 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember the show as if it were yesterday, except for names, I have slept since then. Remember Bigfoot and nature boy? The dune buggy named schlep that turned into a super buggy? Oh the memories! Wasn't Ruth Buzzy hilarious as the space traveler? I hope that each of us can look back and thank Sid and Marty Kroft for these wonderful memories. If anyone would like to discuss this further, I am sure that names like Gary Gnu, Captain Kangaroo, Smurfette, Optimus Prime, Duke, Snake Eyes, and shows like Space 1999, The original LOTR cartoon movies, Scooby Doo (Timeless) and many others would love to return to that era when Saturday Morning cartoons ruled the house!
