Taking the still unconscious Major to safety, she joins him as Yeoman Diana Prince.

The Super Loop roller coaster shown in the episode "The Phantom of the Rollercoaster" is actually called The Revolution, which had debuted in 1976 at the California amusement park Magic Mountain. The amusement park would later be owned by Warner Bros., the studio that produced the Wonder Woman television series. The park was eventually incorporated into the Six Flags company and sold to Premier Parks. Nevertheless, Gotham, the comic book area of the park, remains based on Warners' DC Comics. Rare Wonder Woman merchandise continues to be sold in Magic Mountain stores. See more »
Whenever Wonder Woman jumps from the ground to a roof or ledge a stuntwoman jumps from the height to the ground and the film is reversed. This results in innumerable shots of Wonder Woman's hair blowing up in the same direction as the jump. See more »
I don't even know if there are any strong female role models out there for girls in this day and age. Judge Judy maybe? Lynda Carter was so down to earth and beautiful not to mention quietly ridding the world of evil doers...always wanted to be Wonder Woman! Yup, she got me through ages 10 and 11. I always looked up to Lynda Carter and Wonder Woman!
I read something atrocious like she didn't get along with Lyle Wagoner. I can't even imagine that. She always seemed to carry herself with such grace, and Lyle Wagoner always seemed like a cool guy as well. So glad they are rerunning Wonder Woman! It may seem dated but the show holds up well and I wonder what the screen adaptation will be like. No one could replace Lynda Carter...those days are over and done.
