Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Goldie Gold in Return of the Man-Beast (1981)

Goldie Gold (Judy Strangis, ex-Electra Woman & Dynagirl) & Action Jack are in Mexico, where they run afoul of a warped variation on Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Despite its title, "Return of the Man-Beast" refers to the title villain resurfacing after a lengthy absence.

In 1981, viewers still weren't ready for an action cartoon with a female lead, having previously rejected Spider-Woman & Jana of the Jungle. Today? Maybe. It all depends on whether or not Ruby-Spears is willing to bring Goldie back.

Rating: B.
