During World War II, a plane piloted by Major Steve Trevor crashes near Paradise Island, the secret hidden island home of the mighty and eternally young Amazons. He is rescued by Princess Diana, who learns of the war against the Nazis. The Amazons decide to send one of their own to help fight in this crisis. Although forbidden to participate in the selection process, Diana joins secretly and wins the right and responsibility to go. Taking the still unconscious Major to safety, she joins him as Yeoman Diana Prince. Furthermore, when the forces of evil threaten the nation, Diana would spin to transform into Wonder Wonder, armed with a magic belt giving her tremendous strength, bracelets that can stop any bullet, a tiara that can be thrown as a returning weapon and a unbreakable magic lasso that can force anyone to tell the truth.

Warner Bros. attempted several spin-offs from characters in the Wonder Woman series. Actress Debra Winger was offered her own "Wonder Girl" series, but opted out as she wanted to perform in more serious roles. A similar series was proposed for actress Julie Anne Haddock for her role as the also super powered girl from the episode "The Girl From Islandia", actress Sheryl Lee Ralph who appeared in the episode "The Starships Are Coming" was approached to play another super hero, as was Bob Seagren for his role in the episode "The Man Who Could Not Die". Alas, the last three proposals never made it past the approval stage. See more »
Throughout the first season, secondary characters and extras sport hairstyles and sometimes clothing that looked more from the 1970s, when the series was filmed, than from the 1940s, in which the series was set. See more »
During the cynical Watergate Seventies we were certainly in need of unambiguous heroes or heroines as the case may be. The comics have always been a rich source of superheroes, look at how many times Superman has been reincarnated on the big and small screen.
I don't think it was an accident that Wonder Woman came to television the same time in the same decade that women finally got control of their own bodies with Roe vs. Wade. No one was going to tell Wonder Woman what she could do or not do with her own body.
Lynda Carter was one statuesque Wonder Woman. And she came from Paradise Isle where women live extremely long lives keeping their looks and all without men. But World War II intruded on their island and the policy of isolation went up in smoke. Wonder Woman knew exactly which side she would take and it wasn't going to be Mr. Hitler and his misogynistic and chauvinistic policies, not by a damn sight. If she could only have gotten her rope of truth around him.
Lyle Waggoner played Major Steve Trevor of Army Intelligence who kind of liked her, but knew she was kind of out of anybody's league. Halfway through the run, they updated Wonder Woman for the Seventies. It should have stayed during World War II.
But the episodes were fun and Carter was something to be hold in action or just hanging out.
