When an archaeology teacher unearthed an ancient Egyptian amulet, she learns that the item was a magic piece of great power. Researching the amulet's past, she decides to use that for its original purpose. Now whenever there is trouble, she dons the amulet and chants, "Oh Mighty Isis". With that, she transforms into the Egyptian goddess, Isis, and battles evil with the power of that deity.Written by

The original title, "The Secrets of Isis" got shortened on screen to read simply "Isis" because of the combined titles for The Shazam!/Isis Hour, although the series was still known by its full title and is referred to as such in the opening narration performed by Lou Scheimer. See more »
Because of the frequent use of stock footage continuity errors would often be present. Perhaps the most noticeable example is completely different backgrounds before and after Andrea's transformation into Isis. Her first action after transforming was to take flight and a handful of stock takeoffs recur repeatedly throughout the series. See more »

In syndication, the ending "morals tag" was removed from every episode. The original footage of these scenes is now lost, so when the series was released to DVD in 2007 the scenes could not be reinstated into the episodes; instead, second-generation copies of the scenes were included as a bonus feature.

Yeah, I remember this show. It was far out. the best part was when she took off those glasses and ran around fighting crime in that short little white costume number. I'm surprised this show isn't on DVD yet with Shazam!. Isis would definitely make a cool show today. It was a head of it's time.
