Traumafession/Name That Trauma :: Reader Carol McM. on Electra Woman and Dyna Girl & a Banshee Behind Bars

September 13th, 2010 by aunt john · 3 Comments

I just looked this one up recently cause it was shaken loose from my kinder memory bank by this fabulous site.

There was one episode of ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL (a 1976-‘77 SYD & MARTY KROFFT mini show that was shown in parts along with DR. SHRINKER and some other little weirdo kid shows I can’t remember) where they were battling the Empress of Evil.

The part that scared me as a kid was this banshee that wandered the cavernous hideout of the Empress and lured the electrically charged ladies to a trap.

This clip shows the last third of the episode with two short scenes with the banshee. In my memory the banshee scenes took up way, way, way more of the show. In fact – in my memory – the banshee was the main bad guy and was featured throughout the whole freaking thing. In reality the banshee is shown for like 5 seconds. I didn’t like that banshee.

I had another banshee related experience a year or so later. I was watching T.V. at night and some show had a guy lying on a bed in prison and a banshee slowly comes down these stairs. The guy knows it’s there and starts to freak out and when it gets to the bars of the cell, I think, it just walks right through. That’s all I remember of that one – and it’s kinda vague. I have no idea if it was a T.V. show or movie.

Thanks again! You guys rock!

Syd and Marty Krofft existed to give children nightmares. Everything they did had an odd look to it created solely to cause nightmares and despair. I don’t care if it was Jay Robinson and Billy Barty chasing me though his creep lab Charles Nelson Reilly wanting to stuff me in his giant hat. Everything they did was flat out bizarre.

WOW… Cyndi and Krofft action!  Electra Woman & Dyna Girl goes so well with Debbie Does Dallas music too…
