30 Wonderful Publicity Photos of Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis as Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, 1976

Electra Woman and Dyna Girl is a live action superhero children’s television series from 1976 created by Sid and Marty Krofft. The series aired 16 episodes in a single season as part of the umbrella series The Krofft Supershow. During the second season, it was dropped, along with Dr. Shrinker. When later syndicated in the package “Krofft Super Stars” and released on home video, the 16 segments, which were each about 12 minutes long, were combined into eight episodes.

The program followed the crime-fighting exploits of caped superhero Electra Woman (played by Deidre Hall) and her teen sidekick Dyna Girl (Judy Strangis), who worked in their normal lives as reporters for Newsmaker Magazine (the two’s surnames were never revealed—just their first names: Lori and Judy, respectively).

In each episode, the duo dons brightly-colored spandex costumes, 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. They were assisted by Frank Heflin (Norman Alden), a scientist who stayed at their “ElectraBase”, operating its highly sophisticated “CrimeScope” computer while keeping in continual contact with the pair through their “ElectraComs”.

Dyna “Girl” Judy Strangis is only two years and 53 days younger than Electra “Woman” Deidra Hall. The show’s theme song was sung by a then-unknown 23-year-old singer named Cyndi Lauper.

  1. They look equally in their mid-thirties to me, and they seen nice. Their leg skin keeps changing colors, from photo to photo. Thirties in 1976 means they're in their eighties now. I wonder how things turned out for them, and if they stayed together and are still friends. Cyndi Lauper is about to embark on another concert tour. They could go with her.
