Electra Woman and Dyna Girl

Show Summary

Electra Woman and Dyna Girl was originally presented as a segment of "The Krofft Supershow" during the 1976-77 season. This series originally aired in 15-minute segments so each episode was shown in 2 parts -- part one shown on Saturday, and the exciting conclusion the next Saturday. (Theme Song): "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl / Fighting all evil deeds. / Each writes for a magazine / Hiding the life she leads. --- Electra Woman and Dyna Girl --- Summoned to Electra-base / By Electra-comps they wear. / Lori and Judy dare to face / Any criminal anywhere. --- Electra Woman and Dyna Girl."

  • Superior To Batman In Many Ways

    10
    I wish that WB/The CW could have brought back Electra Woman & Dyna Girl after the 2001 pilot was commissioned but never aired on TV. However, it can be seen on YouTube.



    If there is a single fault for this series, it's that the stories show time restriction; therefore, limited casting opportunities and cheesy special effects had to do. This is a shame, because the gadgets and costumes were superior to those worn in the 1960s "Batman" TV series. The elevator transformation (aka Electra-Change) is also more believable than Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson sliding down the Bat-poles and instantly becoming the Caped Crusaders; the Electra-Change is also an updated version of Superman's phone booth costume change.



    Now if someone could develop a TV series in which husband-wife superhero teams compete against each other to wipe out the scum of the galaxy, all would be right with the world.moreless
  • Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis) say no more

    9.6
    Electra Woman and Dyna Girl was just what my Saturday morning needed, me a teenage male, and they being two beautiful and talented actresses bringing two smoking super heroines to life in spandex and then the fact that Dyna Girl was supposedly like my age, and it was like wow everytime they were in the grip of the villian of the week I wanted to be able to step into my television and rescue her, well them I guess if I had to save Electra Woman as well. The acting was very well done, for the type of program that it was written to be as it was trying to give us a female version of the teamwork that was presented by Batman and Robin, with the exception of the Frank character being original. Even the opening credits were so intense for a teenage male with them hopping into the Electra car and all, what can I say a total guilty pleasure but a classic none the lessmoreless
  • A short lived series that is fun to watch....!

    7.5
    This show was part of the ' Kroft Supershow ' when it ran back in the mid 1970's. It's obvious that the creators of the Electra Woman and Dyna Girl show meant to have the show bear more than a passing resemblance to the 60's Batman show. With the outrageous villains, campy sets and cliffhanger endings that are resolved at the beginning of the second part of an episode. Diedre Hall, who went on to bigger fame as a daytime soap opera star, played Electra Woman and Judy Strangis playing the chatty Dyna Girl. Cheesy special effects, outfits that were both campy and somewhat sexy and scenarios that were so ridiculous that they were fun to see for this reviewer.



    Overall, if you watch this series for fun and enjoyment and try not to dwell on the logistics, a viewer will come to enjoy it just as much as this reviewer. If only the eight episodes would be released together as a stand-alone release.....moreless
  • Total camp

    6.0
    I watched Electra Woman and Dynagirl when I was a kid. When I grew up I always wanted to see it again because I didn't remember a whole lot of it. Well, I got my wish recently when TV Land showed a couple of episodes. When you're a kid you don't realize that things are campy, but this show was SO campy! The budget was obviously low if there even was one. It is a bad show, but that is not a derogatory comment. Some shows are so bad they make you laugh and that makes them enjoyable. Electra Woman and Dynagirl definately falls into that category!moreless
  • Helped jumpstart me into puberty

    I think one of my first celebratity crushes was on Dyna Girl. Sure, I was 5-6 years old, but something about those pig tails got to me.



    I am still awaiting the day they release the whole series on DVD. (During one weekend, I must have drove the Ex insane, after seeing ONE episode and singning the theme song to this, and most of the other Kroft, series).
