Wonderbug 1.5 – The Maltese Gooneybird

“Dad,” our son said, “this is not real. Dune buggies don’t have eyes.”

Of course it’s real. You just saw it.

“And cars don’t fly. This isn’t real.”

It is real, you just watched it.

“And cars and dune buggies don’t go by themselves.”

You just saw Wonderbug do it.

*deep exhalation*

Well, did you like it?

“YES! It was funny!”


I was going to mention that Wonderbug was the third new installment of The Krofft Supershow and that it starred David Levy, John Anthony Bailey, and Carol Anne Seflinger, with Frank Welker doing the spit-n-sputtin’ voices of Schlepcar and Wonderbug. I would have also mentioned that they did sixteen episodes in the first season and that, unusually, it came back for a second go-around with six new installments in 1977. But as cute and silly as Wonderbug is, my son’s attempt at sanity and common sense is even more amusing.
