Funshine Friday: The Krofft Supershow

Michael Lembeck aka Kaptain Kool
‘The Krofft Supershow,’ 1976

While most of the segments that comprised The Krofft Supershow; Wonderbug, Dr. Shrinker, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, The Lost Saucer, Bigfoot and Wildboy, have previously appeared on Bionic Disco, we haven’t taken a look at the intro for the program itself.

The Krofft Supershow originally ran on ABC from September, 1976 through September, 1978. A live-action “band”, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs, hosted the show, played music (often written by The Osmonds) and introduced the various segments, or mini-shows.

I can post another shot of ‘Electra Woman and Dyna Girl’? Oh, yeah!

The Krofft Supershow was re-tooled in 1978 and became The Krofft Superstar Hour, hosted by the Bay City Rollers.

Here’s the intro for the 1976 debut season where you can get a look at 70s Atlanta and spy a bit of the World of Sid and Marty Krofft amusement park where the Kaptain Kool segments were shot.
