You Know The Voice: Shannon Farnon (1970)

Before she was cast as the voice of Wonder Woman on Super Friends, Shannon Farnon had made the rounds in primetime, making guest appearances on shows like Name of the Game and, in this case, Dragnet.

Let's take you back to March 1970, 3 1/2 years before the launch of the Super Friends franchise, and one of the last episodes of Dragnet in the Jack Webb era. Joe Friday (Webb) is taking a night school course that he may just flunk out of if he goes through with arresting a classmate for drug possession. Pay close attention to the first scene Webb has with Shannon. Doesn't it seem as though they were setting her character up as a prospective girlfriend for Friday? Of course, they didn't follow up, as Friday was the eternal bachelor.....
