Superhero Wonder Woman made the leap from DC Comics to the small screen in the 1975-1979 series starring Lynda Carter. The Amazon beauty from Paradise Island fought ne'er do wells with her exceptional athleticism, not to mention a supply of handy weaponry and defense mechanisms like her bullet-deflecting bracelets and golden lasso - and let's not forget that invisible jet.

The first season of the series was set during World War II. When the series moved from ABC to CBS the next year, the entire format of the show was changed with the immortal Wonder Woman returning to civilization in the late 1970s and teaming up with the son of Steve Trevor from the first season (of course played by the same actor). Lynda Carter's costume also underwent some minor modifications with the changeover.
