Baker’s Log – Electra Woman and Dyna Girl

Electra Woman and Dyna GirlThe 70s saw an increase in female superheroes on television, including the Sid and Marty Krofft Saturday morning adventure series Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. Basically a female version of the Adam West Batman series, this was played straight for kids but made intentionally goofy to entertain the parents. I think. Deidre Hall was the statuesque Electra Woman, aided by the perky and cute Judy Stangis as Dyna Girl. Together, they would battle assorted villains with the aid of Norman Alden, who monitored their adventures from his headquarters, which was actually a giant computer. Alden gave the series it’s grounding, though his gigantic and hideous neckties constantly draw the eye (and make the occasional stock shot all too obvious). Fun series, and I’d love to have the complete (sadly short) run.
