* {{Retool}}: Besides the update to the 1970s at the beginning of the second season, there was a planned retool that showed up in one episode of the third season (which should have been the season finale but was shown out of order). Diana was transferred to the Los Angeles branch of the IADC, with a new boss and supporting cast. The show never got a fourth season, so that was all we got.

In 2011, Creator/DavidEKelley attempted to produce a pilot for a new ''Wonder Woman'' series starring Adrianne Palicki, best known for her role in ''Series/FridayNightLights'', although the project was cancelled before the pilot had been completed. The unfinished pilot attracted poor reviews and [[Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot has a page here]].

'''''Wonder Woman''''' is an American live-action TV series that originally aired from 1975 to 1979, based on the comic book superhero Franchise/WonderWoman. It starred Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor. While often regarded as campy and cheesy in hindsight, it's still somewhat of a CultClassic.

* BadassPrincess: Diana is a member of the royal family of Paradise Island. She could easily enjoy a comfortable life in a utopian society as the universally-adored heir to the throne. Instead, she devotes her life to saving Man's World from Nazis, mad scientists, alien monsters, criminal masterminds, and one disembodied brain in a jar with telekinetic powers.

* ChristmasCake: Averted. In Season 2, Wonder Woman tells Steve Trevor, Jr. that she's more than 2,500 years old. It does nothing to diminish his interest.

** The most blatant example occurs in "The Man Who Made Volcanoes." At the episode's climax, Wonder Woman [[spoiler: places herself in the firing range of a laser beam that causes volcanoes to instantly erupt on the other side of the Earth. Despite being hit by this weapon, which would release up to 25 megatons of energy, for the better part of a minute, Wonder Woman]] barely has a hair out of place afterwards.

** Played straight in 'The Girl From Islandia'. The character in question was [[spoiler: stuck in Man's World without any known way of returning to her home.]]
** The ending to 'Mind Stealers From Outer Space, Part II' was bittersweet at best. [[spoiler: The world was saved from the alien invasion, but Diana's refusal to accept Andros' romantic offer was clearly not an easy decision for her to make.]]

* ImpersonatingTheEvilTwin: Seen in [[spoiler: "The Deadly Toys". Wonder Woman faces off against a robot version of herself that has been designed to defeat Diana and take her place. The battle ends with Wonder Woman being knocked unconscious by the aforementioned robot, who then follows the bad guy to enact his evil plan]]. Or so it seems.

* InNameOnly: The Cathy Lee Crosby PilotMovie featured a non-powered blond Wonder Woman in a track suit. While it does mention Diana's Amazon home and invisible plane, it generally plays more like a superspy knockoff of ''Series/TheAvengers'' than a superhero story.

* MostCommonSuperpower: Until the television series, Wonder Woman as portrayed in the comics as a slim, athletic figure. And then Lynda Carter filled out the costume (and then some!) on this show. Ever since, the comics portray her as the ([[ComicBook/PowerGirl second]]) bustiest, curviest superheroine in the DC Universe.

* SeriesContinuityError: The pilot establishes that Paradise Island, in 1942, is a HiddenElfVillage of amazons who had never seen a man in a thousand years. Princess Diana is elected TheChampion to travel to man’s world. She is the first amazon to leave Paradise Island in a thousand years. However, in the third season episode ''Diana's Disappearing Act'', {{C|onMan}}agliostro claims that Wonder Woman has stopped all his lineage plans since the original Cagliostro (born in the 18th century) and in ''Screaming Javelins'', Diana remembers having met UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte, implying not only that she was in Europe those years, but that she was already doing her superhero job.
** At the pilot and the first episodes, Wonder Woman uses spinning to change clothes into her costume. Later episodes show how she changes by spinning with AudibleSharpness and PowerGlow. At the “Feminum Mystique part I”, Wonder Girl remembers Queen Hypolita teaching Wonder Woman how to change her clothes with AudibleSharpness and PowerGlow before leaving Paradise Island.

** In "Fausta, The Nazi Wonder Woman", Steve Trevor is held captive in such a room to lure Wonder Woman to her doom. The lure succeeds. [[spoiler: The walls, however, don't.]]
** In "The Man Who Made Volcanoes", Diana's snooping in a place where she's not welcome when she falls through a trap door. She quickly finds herself in a narrow pit with the walls closing in to crush her. [[spoiler: There is, however, enough room for her to spin and transform into Wonder Woman.]]
