WATCH: Everything you never knew about the Wonder Woman TV show

Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman recently became the highest-grossing superhero origin story ever seen on the silver screen, inching past 2002's Spider-Man with a worldwide box-office haul of just over $821.7 million.

 

A sizable component of this enthusiastic audience is familiar with the swingin' '70s iteration of the character bounding onto television screens across America in full Technicolor. For geeks of a certain age, Lynda Carter's version of Diana Prince and the legend of Wonder Woman is what they grew up with, solidifying the notion of her extreme popularity for the past 76 years, since she was created by psychologist William Moulton Marston.

To refresh everyone's memories of the original pair of Wonder Woman TV series, which aired on ABC and CBS from 1975 to 1979, let's flash back to the era of flared bell bottoms, disco music, and Pet Rocks to dive deep into the legends and lore surrounding this iconic prime-time adventure.

Check out out our revealing Wonder Woman video above and lasso some fun, little-known facts about the production, and then tell us if seeing the lovely Lynda Carter pouncing on bad guys makes you feel a little bit nostalgic ... or just old!
