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>

Trivia

During the first season, the producers tried to capitalize on the glam/glitter rock craze by having Kaptain Kool and the Kongs dress up in glittery costumes. However, during the second season the band went for a more of a tough biker image along the lines of Fonzie by having the band dress up in leather jackets. See more »

Wow - these postings really brought about a flood of memories. I spent my youth watching Saturday morning cartoons and the Krofft Supershow.

I've been feeling nostalgic lately, so I guess that's why I'm here.

Remember the Fall Cartoon preview shows they used to have? Each network would literally preview the coming fall Television Cartoon schedule and I would try to watch every show! I would get so excited about the upcoming cartoons! I remember the show that premiered Kaptain Kool and the Kongs!! I was about 9 or 10 and thought that Kaptain Kool and the Kongs, well DID look really cool! So, I just remember the excitement of those days when Saturday morning cartoons meant everything and how much I loved to watch Krofft shows. I loved to watch Dr. Shrinker, Elektra Woman and Dinah Girl, Land of the Lost, and thanks to the guy above who reminded me of "Far Out Space Nuts." I haven't thought of that show in 30 years...

Everybody here is right - Saturday mornings as a kid in the early and mid to late 70's were awesome. Nothing was better than all of the cartoons and Krofft shows.

The only time in my life I would get up at 7 am when I didn't have to!
