Trivia

When ABC was rebooting its Saturday morning Cartoon serial "Superfriends" (which in 1985 was to be retitled the "Legendary Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians") they sought out high profile actors to play some of the parts of the superheroes. They reached out to Lynda Carter to voice the character of Wonder Woman at this point. Adam West, who played Batman in the live action TV series; had agreed to play Batman this season; and show producers hoped they could strike gold again by having another iconic actor associated with a DC hero take part in the series. But Lynda Carter said no; she had other commitments. (In interviews she has said she has been approached several times since Wonder Woman was cancelled to do a reboot or a reunion special; like they did several times with Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman reunion movies. Carter said these reunion movies often turn out "pathetic"; so she always turns them down). See more »

The Whimping out of Super Heroes
28 March 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

I pretty much grew up reading the comic books that D.C. published in the 70's and 80's, so as a seven year old I was excited to hear that a new cartoon with all the great heroes that I loved was coming out. Imaging my shock when this turned out to be a wimpy piece of garbage that had our super heroes imparting valuable life lessons to the two annoying brats that they were saddled with, Wendy and Marvin, and their flea-bitten mutt, Wonder Dog.

Too bad this came out after several parents watchdog groups eliminated what they perceived as violent content from all children's programming. If I want to get valuable life lessons I will look at either the children's shows on P.B.S. or at another show that came out around the same time, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. At least that one was entertaining.
