Wonder Woman: The New Original Wonder Woman

aired in 1975 starring Lynda Carter, based on the comic book that debuted in 1941. Staying true to the comic, the story opens with Major Steve Trevor flying to the Devil's Triangle to intercept a Nazi plane during WWII. Both planes are destroyed and Steve washes up on the shores of Paradise Island, where he's discovered by two Amazon women, one who just happens to be Princess Diana. Diana is smitten while nursing Trevor back to health and sets out to take him back to America in her invisible jet. Once there, she learns more of what it means to live among men as well as the effects of WWII. Her Amazonian powers and skills come in handy when foiling the first of many Nazi plots and we see the first signature Wonder Woman spin. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman, who was created by psychologist William Moulton Marston with his wife and co-creator Elizabeth Holloway Marston, and artist H.G. Peter. Their co-habitant, Olive Bryne, was the inspiration for the physical form of Wonder Woman as well as the bracelets she often wore.
Trivia: During the filming of the pilot, producers were trying to figure out a way to show how Diana Prince became Wonder Woman, when Carter suggested that she do a spin. The spinning transformation was later incorporated into the comics and into animated appearances such as Super Friends & Justice League Unlimited. (Prior to this, in the comics, Diana would spin her magic lasso around her body, with the lasso changing her clothes, or by simply changing at superhuman speed.)
