Electra Woman and Dyna Girl
If you’re a kid of the 70’s or perhaps your parents are, then you can probably blame Sid & Marty Krofft for some of their funky tastes in strange television shows. Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, Land of the Lost, H.R. Pufnstuf, The Bugaloos, and The Kroft Supershow which included Electra Woman and Dyna Girl warped many a young mind back in the day, as this humble NerdBastard can attest.
Now Legendary Digital is bringing back Electra Woman & Dyna Girl with a digital platform based series that brings the pair into present day. The original series became a cult classic and hopefully, this new incarnation can capture some of the funky 70’s fun the first series is well-known for. Check out the first full trailer for the new series after the jump. (more…)

It’s hard to imagine a time when superheroes weren’t so prevalent on TV. In fact, most of today’s youth have no idea what it was like when there was only a handful of channels to watch. The superheroes of the 70s were few and far between, and they were campy as hell. Case in point, superhero series Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. The program playfully, but deliberately, lampooned the superhero combo of Batman and Robin, taking many of its cues from the earlier Batman television series. The show followed the crime-fighting exploits of female caped crusader Electra Woman and her teen sidekick Dyna Girl who worked in their off-time as reporters for a magazine. In each episode, the duo would don skintight spandex in a bright flash of light called an “Electra-Change,” get into the “ElectraCar,” and use an array of technically advanced gadgets to thwart an eclectic collection of supervillains.
Electra Woman and Dyna Girl is getting rebooted by Legendary and Fullscreen as a new web series, with the dynamic crime-fighting duo being played by YouTube stars Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart. Now we have our first look at the two super ladies! (more…)
