SERIES WONDER WOMAN ANIMATED
"Wonder Woman And The Star Riders"

The eye of television has been elusive when it comes to an animated Wonder Woman in a series of her own, but in 1993 she almost made it. DC Comics and Mattel Toys united in a proposed joint-venture with a line of toys and ana nimated series to introduce them. Billed as "sparkling super heroines" and "designed to challemge the gender steoreotypes prevalent even in today's toy marketing," it consisted of a Wonder Woman doll and her four friends each of which was equipped with a magic jewel representing her domain: Dolphin (water). Ice (cold), Solara (heat and light) and Starlily (plants). Also was produced a feline villain named Purrsa.

     The line of toys as well as the series was called "Wonder Woman And The Star-Riders," but it never materialized since Mattel pull the plug on the toyline arguing a poor advance orders. Boyd Kirkland, the program's producer and idrector said: "The prevailing belief was that action-based toys for girlswould not sell well, despite Mattel's attempt to create a toy line with most of the stereotypical girl-play factors included such as long hair to brush and style, jewelry to wera, a dollhouse/palace, flying ponies with flowing mane and tails, with everything coloured in variations of pink."

      This was the closest Wonder Woman project for a series of her own but it certainly still have a chance, specially after the success of the latest animated incarnations of Batman, Superman and the Justice League. Will be Wonder Woman Warner Bros.'s next try? Good luck Wondy!
