In honor of the holiday season, and to take advantage of the upcoming Wonder Woman film and Lynda Carter's return to the silver screen in Supergirl, let's take a look back at The New Adventures of Wonder Woman's somewhat holiday-related episode from 1977 titled "The Deadly Toys"!
Time to wonder... about Wonder Woman! Yeah, obvious word play is obvious.
“It’s amazing that a 150-minute film has such a flat and underdeveloped story. It really feels like a rush job, or that it’s a film based on cheap fan-service, or made by a committee.”
“Gods and Monsters is explicitly a ‘what if?’ story, made by someone who loves these characters and wants to play around with them a little.”
The second part in a mini-series celebrating heroes and villains who enjoy their chosen profession.
“Many people seem to be under the impression that modern superhero comics are fundamentally nothing more than male power fantasies about violent Übermenschen going around imposing their will on the world through force and terror.”
Classic cartoon underoos for adults! With bonus sexism!
Fox & Friends' passionate defense of children's cartoon characters quickly descends into hyperbole and racism
“Who is this meant to appeal to, exactly? Robots? Vulcans? Oscar the Grouch? Is there a single demographic anywhere in the world that does not like humor at all in their movies?”
“The great Wonder Woman, once a trippy, unique pulp sci-fi heroine, has been reduced to the generic Xena clone that Gal Gadot will apparently be playing onscreen. Because one warrior princess is the same as another, right?”
“Screw up an Iron Man movie, no one really cares. Screw up a Superman movie, and you’re fucking with modern-day mythology.”
Sofie finishes her first trilogy of "Who is...?" videos with a more troublesome character, but one who's also pretty important: the one and only Wonder Woman.

All the boys are getting their own movies. Why not the most recognizable female hero in the world?
Dr. O'Boogie intrudes on Sofie's territory with his own review of the Wonder Woman pilot! No, not the one with Lynda Carter, or the one with Adrianne Palicki—this was the very first attempt to bring the Amazon Princess to life, starring future That's Incredible host Cathy Lee Crosby as a blonde Wonder Woman with a lame costume and no powers, unless you count her amazing ability to always be on the phone.
In this very special episode, Sofie gets the crossover of her dreams when she teams up with Linkara, an Agony Booth contributor from way back who's apparently doing video reviews now?
This time, Sofie chooses to focus on something good from the DC universe, as she watches the now legendary animated series Justice League, where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, and the Flash all team up to fight the Body Snatchers and the machines out of War of the Worlds in the stunning three-part pilot episode, "Secret Origins".
Sofie examines the most famous comic book super-heroine of all time, Wonder Woman, by looking at the awful, awful way Hollywood and the TV industry treated the character in the 2011 David E. Kelley-produced NBC pilot starring Adrienne Palicki as Wonder Woman, which was so bad that (very fortunately) it never aired.
