View-Master: ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL
For whatever reason, ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL was dropped from the show at the start of the second season (along with DR. SHRINKER) to accommodate two newer segments, BIGFOOT AND WILDBOY and MAGIC MONGO. Kaptain Kool & the Kongs were replaced by the Bay City Rollers for the third season, when the show moved to NBC and was re-titled THE KROFFT SUPERSTAR HOUR. Eight episodes later the "Superstar Hour" was shortened to 30 minutes and renamed THE BAY CITY ROLLERS SHOW, but that format lasted for only five episodes before the show was axed altogether. The Krofft name wasn't seen on Saturday mornings again until five years later, when Sid & Marty tried to turn Richard Pryor into a kiddie show star (!) with PRYOR'S PLACE.
It's been a long time since we’ve done one of these View-Master entries, and unfortunately we still haven't figured out how to post any the eye-popping 3-D images. However, the booklet that was issued with the pack has been scanned for your amusement. Enjoy.
