Skateboarders with Lynda Carter for the “Wonder Woman” episode “Skateboard Wiz”
Lynda Carter was an icon of her era. While we have a new Wonder Woman taking over the movie scene, Carter will always be remembered as a trail blazer. She set the standard for what a super hero show should be, and she did it as a leading female in a time that men still dominated the roles. In 1978, she did an episode of the show with a group of skateboarding kids, called “Skateboard Wiz.” In the episode, she had fight thugs that had been running an illegal gambling operation. But it was only possible with the help of one skateboarder with a photographic memory.
