16 x 15 minute episodes
Lori (Deidre Hall) and Judy (Judy Strangis) are both writers for Newsmaker magazine – but when trouble calls they become ElectraWoman and DynaGirl and use the latest in technological gadgetry – such as the ultramodern, highly complex ‘CrimeScope’ computer system which was supplied by Frank Heflin, their assistant, and programmed to pinpoint criminal activity – to solve crimes.
By activating the Electra Change (at their Electra Base) Laurie and Judy go from their street clothes to their crime-fighting outfits.
Fearless and resourceful Laurie wears a reddish-orange Electra Woman costume with a yellow cape, boots and tights (to match her blonde hair). The letters EW appear on the front of her costume.
The more impetuous Judy dons a red Dyna Girl costume, cape and boots with pink tights, and the letters DG on the front of her costume.
She uses phrases like “What an Electra Mess!” or “Electra Wow!” when in a jam.
They travel in either the Electra Car or the Electra Plane and use devices including the Electra Comp (their wrist-worn, portable link to
Electra Base), Electra Strobe (which allows them to perform anything at 10,000 times normal speed), Electra G (which adds gravity to their bodies when activated) and Electra Power (a sudden burst of power to help in difficult situations).
The various villains they encountered included The Sorcerer, Ali Baba, the Spider Lady, Cleopatra, the Pharaoh, and the Empress of Evil.
ElectraWoman and DynaGirl was part of the original version of the Krofft Supershow.
A short pilot was made in 2001 in an attempt to remake the series, with Markie Post of Night Court fame as ElectraWoman. No series eventuated.
