Wonder Woman is an American television series based on the DC Comics comic book superheroine of the same name. Starring Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince and Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor (both Sr. & Jr.), the show originally aired from 1975 to 1979. The series was first introduced to audiences in 1975 with a TV movie (the pilot) as "The New, Original Wonder Woman." Two subsequent "specials" followed, which would be the next two episodes in the series' run ("Wonder Woman Meets Baroness Von Gunther" & "Fausta, The Nazi Wonder Woman"). ABC ordered the remaining 10 episodes to finish out what would be season one. ABC canceled the show after one season, but CBS picked it up for seasons 2 and 3. Revamped to modern day 1977, the show began season 2 retitled "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman," and showcased Diana returning to the U.S. 35 years after she'd first left Paradise Island. Lynda's Wonder Woman costume was altered a bit by original designer Donfeld, Diana would now be employed by the I.A.D.C. (Inter-Agency Defense Command), and her boss would be the son of Steve Trevor, Sr., from Diana's first foray to the U.S. in 1942. The show was canceled in 1979, the last true episode being "The Man Who Could Not Die." This episode began with Diana moving into a new house in L.A. (working at the west coast headquarters of the I.A.D.C.), Lyle Waggoner having left the show altogether (and out of the opening credits). Often aired out of order, though, the show's last two episodes (including Waggoner) are sometimes run as "The Phantom of the Roller Coaster" Parts 1 & 2.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, known in Japan as Oz no Mahōtsukai is an anime adaptation based on four of the original Oz books by L. Frank Baum. In Japan, the series aired on NHK then TV Tokyo from 1986 to 1987. It consists of 52 episodes, which explain other parts of the Oz stories, including the events that happened after Dorothy first left Oz. In 1987, HBO purchased the rights to the series and dubbed it into English. Production for the English version was done by the Canadian studio Cinar. Actress Margot Kidder was hired as narrator, and the Canadian band Parachute Club provided songs for the series, which aired as a mini-series. This English version attempted to completely occlude the show's Japanese origins, going so far as to remove all Japanese names and studios from the credits and to credit key aspects of the animation to Westerners, which applied primarily to the CGI opening sequence. Currently the English dub of series airs in the United States on the Cookie Jar Toons block on This TV. The series has been aired in many countries outside Japan and has been dubbed in English, Spanish, Italian and numerous other languages. Aside from having the same source material, this TV series bears no relation to the 1982 anime film directed by Fumihiko Takayama and produced by Yoshimitsu Banno for Toho, though both works share the same title in Japanese. However, since the 1982 film was not released in Japan until 1986 - the same year in which the TV series was first broadcast - the two productions are often confused.
