Season One of Wonder Woman Theme Song – The Best TV Show Theme of All Time

Some would say the Dr Who Theme is the best of all time. I think it’s number two. This is just a personal opinion. Just listen to this banger. Someone took the time to remaster the track and make it stereo in the example above. It’s from Season one of Wonder Woman starring Linda Carter which ran for three seasons starting in 1975.

The first season theme music is better than what they ended up going with for seasons two and three. The removed the lead vocal. I think that was a big mistake.

The show had an excellent intro animation to go with the song as well. Here it is. Classic.

Superheroes Start Wearing Safety Helmets – Shocking Announcements From DC Comics & Marvel Entertainment

In a four-page joint press release published this morning, DC Comics and Marvel Entertainment have pledged to portray their superhero characters with safety helmets on their heads. The reasoning is due to child safety concerns.

“We recognize the tremendous responsibility placed upon us to keep our young fans safe. In order to set a good example for young media consumers, from this point forward, all of our heroic characters will be seen wearing safety helmets of some kind. This includes our top-shelf properties such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Spiderman, and The Hulk”

So reads the press release. It goes on to say,

“We understand that children may model their behavior after what they see in comics and in the movies.”

That is quite a public admission considering all of the litigation that has occurred in the past. As recently as July 2021 a parent successfully sued for damages in a Minnesota court after a child sustained a traumatic brain injury while imitating the action from one of the many Batman films.

Fans were immediately outraged by the news and took to social media to air their discontent. On the other hand the move was immediately applauded by the Children’s Helmet Initiative, a grass roots organization dedicated to preventing brain injury.

There are a lot of questions about the thinking behind this change and about the plans for the films that are currently in production such as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is set to release on November 11th.

We reached out to both corporations but have not received any replies as of the time this went to press.

“Batdance” by Prince

Today is National Super Hero Day! Caped crusaders, masked vigilantes, mutants, guardians, and immortal gods are all celebrated on National Superhero Day. The folks at Marvel created this yearly celebration back in 1995. Supervillains are not included.

If you are a cosplayer, today is the day to rock those tights!

Prince was involved in the promotion of Tim Burton’s Batman movie in 1989. Prince created an album based on the movie, but only one song was actually used in the movie, and for only a short time.

The video for “Batdance” is funky and strange. It should have been used an overture for the movie that appeared before the movie begins. Sadly this was not the case.

I would really like to know what went wrong. What didn’t they put much more of Prince’s music in the movie? If you know why let us know in the comments.
