Wonder Woman presents a bit of dilemma for Pop Culture writers. Why do you ask? Outside of the TV series starring Lynda Carter, her appearance on several cartoons, and a ton of comic books she has never been a monstrous part of the Pop Culture Zeitgeist, until now. No offense to those fans of Diana Prince. It’s just that when we have a new Superman, Spider-Man, or Batman film, we have a ton of material to draw upon. Best gadget, lamest villain, and so fourth. Wonder Woman is a tougher topic to cover. As this is AFJ’s Saturday morning Toy Commercial column, we wanted to give the Amazon her due. Sadly we only found a few toy commercials for Wonder Woman. We did fill in the gaps with a few additional PSAs and TV specials that we know you will love.

Remember Wonder Woman, the TV series, was originally set during WW2. So yes, she is out of time here.

Nothing really new here. Captain America’s shield did the same thing.

I don't know if it was cool or sad that she still had to dress as Wonder Woman for her own network special.
