The Flash & Aquaman Cameo In Unaired Electra Woman & Dyna Girl Pilot (2001)

15 May 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In 1976, Sid and Marty Krofft ("H.R. Pufnstuf") created Electra Woman and Dyna Girl for their series The Krofft Supershow. There were sixteen 12-minute segments, that featured Deidre Hall ("Days of Our Lives") as Electra Woman (played by ) and Judy Strangis ("Room 222") as her sidekick Dyna Girl. For whatever reason, Warner Bros. commissioned a new version in 2001 with Markie Post ("Night Court") as Electra Woman and Anne Stedman ("That '70s Show") as Dyna Girl. Where the original version was a spoof on the 60's Batman & Robin television series, this new version was a cynical take on superheroes. Markie Post's Electra Woman is portrayed as former superhero who has become trailer park trash. She's hooked on booze, and has a mighty chip on her shoulder because her original Dyna Girl stole her husband. Watch the pilot above and be on the lookout for brief appearances by The Flash »
