Storyline

A variety of low-budget but imaginative shows introduced by a rock band, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs. "Electra-Woman and Dynagirl" follows two spandex-clad beskirted crime fighters. "Wonderbug" features a trio of teenagers whose run-down Schlep Car is magically transformed into a puppet dune buggy. In "Dr. Shrinker," a mad scientist shrinks a group of castaways on his isle and they fight to survive. In "The Lost Saucer", two androids and their two human friends try to return to Earth. The 1977-1978 Season featured more of "Wonderbug," plus "Magic Mongo" and "Bigfoot and Wildboy." Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Trivia

Each of the featured shows were re-edited as standalone titles which were first rerun in the syndicated "Krofft Superstars" anthology. Running times fluctuated on the Supershow to accommodate the Kaptain Kool and the Kongs skits, so the standalone edits were sometimes trimmed or padded with previously-deleted scenes. See more »

I loved this as a kid
24 November 2015 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

I was 14 when this played on Saturday mornings. I had younger siblings who loved it so I decided to watch it once. It was as stupid as can be...but I loved it! Full of VERY bad jokes, extreme overacting and mediocre songs but put over with lots of energy, color and a quick pace. I remember "Magic Mongo", "Dr. Shrinker", "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl". The "special" effects were laughably done but at the age of 14 you didn't care. This was in no way a good show but it aimed at kids not adults and, back then, kids were watching Saturday morning cartoons and such religiously. Hey--it beat doing homework! I'm glad I saw it back then but have no desire to see it now. Childhood memories die hard and I'm afraid I'd hate it now.
