    I would say we were squarely in the Bronze Age during the series run...but yes, Cheetah was scarce in the comics then.

    Also agree that the CBS version was definitely doing its “own thing”. It quickly became more influenced by other TV shows and fads of the era than the WW mythos— much to its detriment IMO.
    I only support clay origins.

    Would have been nice to see a version of Cheetah in the show though.
    I imagine if they did a Cheetah it'd have been their own created version like how Wonder Girl wasn't Donna.

    If they did use Wonder Woman's rogues, do you feel that they could have possibly became household names? (i.e. the various villains from Batman '66). They did use Baroness von Gunther but alas she hasn't really had that much action... And I guess you won't get too many people interested in Dr. Solano like they would be King Tut...

    If they actually reoccurred? For the most part. They'd probably be used more in comics than they are now.

    Well, some of them are household names. And by some I mean Cheetah.

    Ares is of course a household name already and because of the movie, most people know he's a villain of hers. Giganta miiiiight also be a household name...people know of her I think(?)

    But yes, if the show used them as reoccurring villains, I do think more of her villains would be known household names.

    I think they stayed away from Cheetah and other costumed villains from the comics because the producers were afraid the show would fall into the camp trappings of the Adam West “Batman” show. WW wasn’t played for laughs like “Batman” was and I guess they thought the costumed villains would be hard to take seriously.
    If you watch the second season, they did make an attempt to give her some kind of rogues gallery. The episodes with Marion Mariposa, Count Cogliostro, and Raymond Manta all make allusions that the villains had previous encounters with WW. But none of them ever returned for another episode.

    Glad this thread is here. I've only just watched the first 3 episodes on HBO Max so I might avoid the other posts for now, but I do enjoy it and like noticing lots of details specific to that time period.

    Yes, Season 1 was the best.

    And I believe somewhere between ep 6 and 12 in Season 2 they stop the new animated opening segment and switch to the "live-action" shots.

    Season 2 also does away with the full theme song when WW goes into action. They start with other singing it and then slowly to just some of the music.

    Yeah its a shame at how much the budget appeared to be cut.

    It is nice to see Diana react to the change in currency between S1&2. Awww and Jessica Walters, never noticed her during my old rewatches.

    Yes! I loved Jessica in everything she did. I am glad she starred in WW.

    It’s been years since my last rewatch. Maybe you can confirm something. In the ABC pilot movie they let WW use her fists. I think she delivered a right cross in three different scenes. But if memory serves she never punched anyone again throughout the series.

    Yes, you are correct, if memory serves me.

    It had to do with a "non-violence" thing that they added to female shows, as on the Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner's show too. Even Charlie's Angels fell prey, but being PIs, they werre allowed the occasional chop, punch, flip.
