Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Missed It By That Much Edition


During a recent Twitter discussion with a Faithful Spoilerite, I was reminded that Wonder Woman’s first animated appearance came during an episode of the cartoon version of ‘The Brady Kids.’  Of course, her first live-action shot at fame (not counting a quickie pilot from ‘Batman’ producer Bill Dozier during the time when that show was a media juggernaut) came as a blonde gadgeteer/martial artist in the Emma Peel vein, played by future ‘That’s Incredible’ presenter Cathy Lee Crosby.  While not particularly successful (or, for that mater, sensible), it was nonetheless a gateway to the eventual, more successful Lynda Carter take from the late 1970s, which was both successful and iconic enough to remain the general ‘consensus’ view of the public of what the character should be like, even decades later…
