Wonder Woman and The Brady Bunch Team Up in Early ’70s Animated Weirdness
In the great pantheon of television crossovers that includes Steve Urkel meeting Uncle Jesse, Lennie Brisco teaming up w John Munch, and everyone who appeared in “Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue,” the time-traveling adventures of the “Brady Bunch” kids with Wonder Woman from the animated ’70s show “The Brady Kids” ranks up there as one of the weirdest.Through an odd twist of fate while Jan was searching for answers about Euclid for a school project, she inadvertently ran into Diana Prince, pressed her to decide whether brains or brawn were more important for succeeding in life, and then traveled back in time thanks to the Brady kids’ magical warlock bird companion.
If this sounds unbelievable, all you need to do is check out the episode for yourself to see that we get far too few animated team-ups between modern-day TV stars and comic book super heroines. If such television super-creators were still in power today, we would almost certainly have a cartoon about the gang from “The Office” solving mysteries with Wolverine. And that’s a concept you can take to the bank.
