What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Great Hera!

Here’s the Weird 1967 Pilot for a Wonder Woman Show From the Creators of 1966′s Batman


Complete with a worried mother, a weird dig at Wonder Woman’s… ego, I guess, and a nearly entire minute long shot of Diana mugging for herself in the mirror… there’s a place where things that might seem a product of old-timey sexism just come off as weird non sequiturs, and this is it. Gaze in bemusement, everybody. And read more about this pilot over at Neatorama.

    Someone managed to get Wondy crossed with Narcissus and the annoying neighbor from Bewitched. Also…that eagle ain’t providing enough support there, honey. You should probably get resized on that…

    Wow. I would say “someone should make a parody of this!” but somebody already made… this.

    Is that the woman who was married to Harcourt Fenton Mudd?

    Well, even in the 60s this pilot got rejected.

    I am truly speechless here.

    This monstrosity cancels out about 47% of all the cool, wonderful things that the 60s ever produced.

    That started off an awful lot like an infomercial.

    A newspaper has knocked me over and I need help to get up, but I’m Wonder Woman. Fear me. =-P

    Trivia: The Wonder Woman in the mirror was played by Linda Harrison, who was Nova in the Planet of the Apes movies.

    Was it just me, or did that brassiere look like it was made to Wonder Woman’s actual proportions but on a woman with a regular shaped body it just looks…weird.

    I thought it was kinda cute until she floated away. Wasn’t expecting that!

    “Away you vision of enchantment”…AWAY indeed honey! Far FAR away!

    No, Diana’s mother was played by Maudie Prickett, and Stella Mudd was played by Kay Elliot, though both have had long TV careers and have appeared together on Bewitched. Apropos of nothing.

    The thing that gets me about this is: I know we only got a few minutes of it, filmed on a non-existent budget so it was all on one set between 2/3 characters, but: who was the intended audience? Would it have been played straight for the kids but with jokes for the adults? Was it going to be strictly for grown-ups to laugh at the idea of a “homely” superheroine with an overbearing mother and delusions of beauty? The music, FX and the comical way she took off into the air at the end suggests the latter. The extended rip-off of the Marx Brothers mirror routine suggests future writers of 70s sketch shows where the players keep corpsing each other.

    Actually the whole thing suggests someone had a handle on bad re-imaginings of comic book characters decades before more recent shows.

    What even is this.

    Her method of take-off is possibly the most hilarious thing ever.

    Thank Wonder Woman’s bracelets we dodged a bullet on that one.

    Sheez, why is she pretending to read the newspapah? Women can’t read, see.

    Also, those bloomers are killing me.
