During World War II, a plane piloted by Major Steve Trevor crashes near Paradise Island, the secret hidden island home of the mighty and eternally young Amazons. He is rescued by Princess Diana, who learns of the war against the Nazis. The Amazons decide to send one of their own to help fight in this crisis. Although forbidden to participate in the selection process, Diana joins secretly and wins the right and responsibility to go. Taking the still unconscious Major to safety, she joins him as Yeoman Diana Prince. Furthermore, when the forces of evil threaten the nation, Diana would spin to transform into Wonder Wonder, armed with a magic belt giving her tremendous strength, bracelets that can stop any bullet, a tiara that can be thrown as a returning weapon and a unbreakable magic lasso that can force anyone to tell the truth.

The first two actual episodes of the first season (the pilot was originally shown as a made for TV movie) were broadcast as TV "specials".

When these specials generated high ratings, ABC gave the green light for the series and the remaining 11 episodes to be shown in the fall. 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.
