Here’s a good one! The cast of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool at Hef's mansion back in the early 90’s. Here are Will Smith, Karyn Parsons and Alfonso Ribeiro posing with Hugh Hefner.

At this point in time, the Fresh Prince was in its prime. The show aired in 1990 and ran until 1996 so this was smack dab in the middle of its run.

The show stars Will Smith, who gets himself into trouble in his hometown of West Philadelphia and is sent to live with his wealthy aunt, uncle, and cousins in their Bel Air mansion. With their very conflicting lifestyles, shenanigans always ensued.

This gem features Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis as Electra Woman and Dyna Girl back in 1976. The live-action science fiction children's television series only aired 16 episodes in one season. It was more like a special extension of The Krofft Supershow.

The crime-fighting exploits of Electra Woman (played by Deidre Hall) and her teen sidekick Dyna Girl (Judy Strangis), parody Batman in several ways. They were spandex-wearing caped crusaders with day jobs, ready to go through the "Electra-Change" and hop in the "ElectraCar" at a moment's notice. They also had a wide array of technically advanced gadgets and an eclectic collection of supervillains. They even uttered catchphrases like "Electra Wow!" or "Electra Yikes!"
