This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
Wonder Woman aired from 1975 to 1979 in three seasons with 59 episodes and a made for TV movie which served as the pilot for the series. Not including the 1974 TV movie which starred Cathy Lee Crosby.
The first season intro to the show was quite different, almost completely animated. For various reasons I chose the intro seen here from the second season. Yeah that choice had a lot to do with Lynda Carter jumping around in that costume, so sue me. The early part of the series was a period piece taking place during the 1940's, which means most of the bad guys were Nazis, from 1975 to 1977. When the show moved to CBS it was updated as "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" from 1977 to 1979 and took place in the present (which was the 70's), In order to lower costs of the show. Wonder Woman doesn't age like others and returns 30 something years later to fight crime once again.
IMO Lynda Carter was the heart of the show, very talented actress. Lyle Waggoner, not so much. She's probably single handedly responsible for the show being as successful as it was actually.
The Pepsi commercial is the rarer long version of one of Pepsi's most popular commercials of the time, it was the kid with the puppies that did it. Laughing kids and puppies means Pepsi is good! lol. It could be cut down into 30 second spots and usually was.
I had two cool TV spots for films to use and couldn't decide which one, so I used them both.
I have no idea how they accomplished the connection between kicking ass and collecting stamps but Ernest Borgnine does it with style. Probably because Borgnine was kicking ass with style when Chuck Norris was still shitting in diapers.
