Trivia

Originally aired as 16 serialized installments on The Krofft Supershow (1976), each concluding with a preview of the next show. In the 1980s, they were re-edited as 8 stand-alone episodes, which went on to sporadically air on TV and blip on home video. In several instances, the original "Supershow" edits were longer, and in some, they were shorter to accommodate the various Krofft segments. See more »

Super-women!
7 July 2000 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

Only a handful of episodes were ever made for this addition to "The Krofft Supershow", but it marks a milestone in entertainment history: the introduction of Diedre Hall in her pre-"Days of our Lives" days.

Here, she portrays Lori, a career woman who, with her assistant Judy (Judy Strangis), also fight crime in the guise of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, with the help of their faithful butler Alfred...I mean, their friend Frank Heflin (Norman Alden).

Much like "Batman", EW and DG have an array of devices they use to fight crime and a vast selection of villains to fight against every episode. If memory serves, there was even a cave(!) they operated out of.

Though it reeked of '70s kiddie-show cheapness, the show had a bland kind of style as it tried to evoke the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder while splicing in Women's Lib at the same time.

Too bad. Maybe if they had Aaron Spelling as a producer?

Four stars for "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl" - Diedre Hall's finest hour (in 1976, that is).
