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 uttering catchphrases like "Electra Wow!" or "Electra Yikes!"
