Flared pants and Star Command

Talking to Air (dig that coffee) found a delicious pleasure: the '70s Live Action Kid Vid site, which appeals to people precisely our age, who "remember Shazam!, Isis, Land of the Lost, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl or Ark II."

A few weeks ago I had been frustrated by not being able to remember the title of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and Air wondered if I recalled The Bugaloos. (I didn't, and, strangely, still don't. How did I miss that awesome car?) But I do recall other shows that ran for as few as eight episodes nearly 30 years ago. Yikes.

If not for the Web, how would we ever find this stuff? No wonder I enjoy The Powepuff Girls (with occasional appearances from the Justice Friends), Dexter's Lab, and other shows my daughters like, but which are made by people who grew up on these same '70s kid-vid programs.

P.S. Here are the Super Friends.
