This week on It Was a Thing on TV we got superheroes and dogs that aren’t dogs. Confused? You won’t be after this week’s shows.
First, we start our 3rd annual pilot month with a look at a potential revival of the Wonder Woman franchise from 2011. And we thought the worst part was Dr. Phil, Nancy Grace, Jeffrey Toobin and Alan Dershowitz in the first 5 minutes. This isn’t your Lynda Carter Wonder Woman.
Then, in 1986, Disney did what Disney does best–make money, specifically with a new cartoon that already had a line of plush dolls. But the direction Disney went was unconventional. Fluppy Dogs were not dogs. Rather, they were interdimensional travelers. It’s not your average Disney cartoon.
