A SaturdayMorningCartoon from 1981, this was Creator/RubySpears' attempt to follow the lead of then-upcoming film ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' (which came out before the show was released, but the show started production before that), by using the "mismatched couple has globe-trotting adventures" theme that would become popular during the 1980s.

The premise of the series, as spelled out in the opening, is that 18-year-old Goldie Gold, the "world's richest girl", founded her own newspaper, "The Goldstreet Journal". She and her companion, daredevil reporter "Action" Jack Travis, go on adventures across the globe solving crimes and reporting on them to the paper's editor, Sam Gritt. The series featured a new villain and caper each week, and an array of fantastical and improbable gadgets that helped Goldie and Jack in essentially ''any'' situation. The ''ComicBook/RichieRich'' comparisons were inevitable, though despite many jokes about the sort of things Goldie could buy, the focus was more on the action and adventure while the gadgets simply appeared to keep the plot moving. The show also tended to follow some fairly familiar tropes of contemporary series, particularly shows on which Joe Ruby and Ken Spears had worked for Creator/HannaBarbera.

The show ran for a single series of 13 episodes on Creator/{{ABC}}, reran until September 1982, then faded into relative obscurity as Ruby-Spears quickly shifted to selling shows based on licensed properties.

As a side note, JackKirby did the character designs.

'''This show has examples of:'''
* ActionAdventureSeries
* BattleButler: Travis "Action" Jack... since Goldie [[FauxActionGirl wasn't particularly actiony]] herself.
* BigFancyHouse: And we mean big. The hallways make up an UnnecessarilyLargeInterior.
* BondVillainStupidity: Being Saturday morning, nobody can just shoot anyone... regardless of how useful this would be. For either side.
* CanineCompanion: Nugget, who is also the TeamPet.
* ConspicuousConsumption: ''Everything'' Goldie owned was, well, gold. Be this simple things like jewelry all the way up to, oh, ''the building her newspaper was headquartered in''.
* ConveyorBeltODoom
* CoolCar: Goldie drove the appropriately named "Goldster".
* CrimefightingWithCash: Goldie, though it was more to get a scoop than save the world (which it could still do).
* CrystalSkull: The subject of the first episode.
* DamselInDistress: Goldie, something even shown in the opening as she stares in awe at all the times she's shown being tied up by the bad guys.

* TheEighties: The series was made in this decade.
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Goldie uses her pearl necklace as a replacement seal for a magic box.
* FakeMemories: "The Goddess of the Black Pearl"
* FanService: The shot of Goldie and Jack at the pool, with ''far'' more emphasis on Goldie's rather skimpy (for the timeslot) bikini.
* {{Fiction 500}}: Goldie is the "richest woman in the world". Which means she can apparently afford hover bikes, indoor weather machines, and even a space shuttle and a ''space mansion''. All coated in gold, of course.
* FlyingCar: Goldie's limo.

* [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Great-grandmother]]: Caroletta Gold.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Goldie's fur coat stands up to anything.
* InfiniteSupplies: Goldie Gold's gadgets and vehicles.
* IntrepidReporter: Jack. Goldie doesn't count because she owns the paper.
* JamesBondage: Never mind, sometimes she has to bail him out, too.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe
* JustForTheHeliOfIt: Goldie sometimes flies her helicopter in her house, often for a chase scene.
* JustFriends: Goldie and Jack, likely for the sake of the Saturday morning crowd.

** One episode, if you count the WB's "Saturday Morning Cartoons 1980s Volume #1" DVD.
* LadyOfAdventure: Goldie.
* LimitedWardrobe: Understandable with Jack, but all that money and Goldie has just five outfits. She has her ensemble with the gold pants and fur coat, her swimsuit, her evening dress, her winter gear with the ermine parka, and her safari gear. Everything else is just disguises or costumes.
* NonIdleRich: Goldie could have just sat down and let other people run her paper. Instead, she runs around and does her own reporting. Presumably out of boredom.

* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Goldie's family name.
* StrappedToARocket: Goldie is shown this way, in a clip in the opening.
* StylishProtectionGear: Her parka.
* SwissCheeseSecurity: You'd think that with all of Goldie's cash for crazy inventions and gadgets in her day job, she might spend some of it on security gadgets to stop just any old run-of-the-mill thug from being able to waltz into her home through the front door.
* TeamPet: Nugget
* TheyFightCrime: Though not actually crime fighters, Goldie and Jack end up doing this anyway.
* TimeTravel
* [[UnclePennybags Aunt Pennybags]]: Goldie Gold
* {{UST}}: Goldie Gold and Jack Travis
* [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys Where Does She Get All Those Wonderful Toys?]]: It's rare for anyone in the actual stories to comment on the insane level of technology Goldie apparently has at her disposal. Not even the space mansion.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Despite not being much of an ActionGirl, Goldie is naturally the one that tries to actually ''hit'' the Countess in "Menace of the Medallion".
