Ah the good ol' days of Saturday morning television! Back in the 1970's one of the many mainstay's that you could always count was the brilliance of Sid and Marty Krofft, the gang that brought us H.R. Pufnstuf, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, Land of the Lost, and one of our favorites - Electra Woman and Dyna Girl!
The original only lasted for one season back in 1976 and starred Deidre Hall (of Days of Our Lives fame) as Electra Woman and Julie Strangis as Dyna Girl. The duo worked as reporters for Newsmaker Magazine for their day job, but secretly operated from their Electrabase as crime fighters with the aid of CrimeScope (their monster-sized computer) and electronics whiz Frank Heflin (played by Norman Alden) against a vast array of super villains each week. Check out the awesome show opener!
