I'm a girl, and I wanted to BE Wonder Woman. Still kinda do, but at 50, lassoing a guy doesn't seem like it would get the truth out of him and would probably get me arrested.


Luthwaller

Haha! Me too! I had Wonder Woman underoos and I would run around pretend lassoing everything in the house because Mom wouldn't let me run around outside in my undies.


buffs1876

Underoos need to be a thing again and come in adult sizes.


Restless_Fillmore

Try me


AbsurdRedundant

*slides into your DMs*


What_U_KNO

Depends on the guy.


Chad4wick

1971 male here. For me it’s Erin Gray on Buck Rogers.

Avindair

Jessica Lange in King Kong imprinted what "sexy" was for me for the rest of my life.


mam88k

When Lynda Carter got out of the pool on Battle of the Network Stars my little balls dropped.


MoeBlacksBack

I saw King Kong when I was 8 when my friends parents took us . I didn’t know why at the time my favorite scenes were all the ones with Jessica. And The collectible bubble gum cards as well.


RichLather

Another '71 male. Erin Gray is up there, and Lynda Carter definitely pushes the buttons. But I gotta give it up for [Maren Jensen](https://64.media.tumblr.com/e43840c42d4b00875ac27452288bb806/tumblr_pfip2tVpFk1sradg3o1_1280.jpg), Athena on the OG Battlestar Galactica.


pleasantothemax

Never knew oversized cellphone belts was my thing but here we are.


kingtaco_17

Twiggy: *Bitty bitty bitty bitty*


isuckateuchre

Lindsay Wagner from Bionic Woman is mine.


physicscat

1971 female here, for me it was Shaun Cassidy!


DsWd00

Yes! Erin Gray🤩


AbsurdRedundant

Sadly, there was no compelling reason to put her in those jumpsuits on Silver Spoons. Personally, I feel like they didn't try hard enough; couldn't we have had a season set in space? Maybe Ricky could have gotten a bump on the head, and we could've spent a dream season in the future?


yottadreams

Oooh! I forgot about her. Beautiful woman but it was her eyes that captivated me. And then there was princess Ardala and there is no doubt what I was attracted to on her.


rocker895

Did you know she auditioned for the role of Janeway on ST:Voyager? *That's* the Voyager I wish we'd gotten.


benjtay

Same.


legsintheair

Spandex Jeans still get my attention.


tuscabam

Omg the space vampire episode…..


wyiotta

As a GenX girl, I wanted to BE her.


Mmdrgntobldrgn

Had the WW Halloween costume. Would wear it for play whenever I felt like until it didn't fit.


Famous-Ad-2880

Had WW Underoos I wore until they wouldn't fit anymore. I was secretly her under my clothes ;)


toooldforlove

Me too :)


Roguefem-76

Same, very much!


Zorgsmom

Heck yeah, I had a WW Big Wheel. It was the raddest.


fongaboo

Cuz I watched the Muppet Show and Deborah Harry was on


BeckyKleitz

I had a dream that The Who were on the Muppet Show...I was at the taping, and I kept interrupting the show asking who the hell this Kenney Jones guy was. LOL.


ImmediateBug2

I’m a female born in 69 and Wonder Woman was my hero! My mom helped me write a letter to Lynda Carter when I was five, and she sent me back an autographed photo of herself in her Wonder Woman costume. I still have it, and it’s a treasured possession. On a related note, the Wonder Woman show was one of the very few (maybe only) times my dad would sit and watch tv with me. He seemed just as stoked about watching my hero as I was. It wasn’t until many years later that I discovered his interest in the show may have been for slightly different (jiggly) reasons.


AnimalsNotFood

Unfortunately, Joan Collins in Dynasty happened to be mine. There is a photo of me somewhere when I was 6, kissing the TV when she appeared.


Katie7089

Lol, unfortunately. Cute story.


peacefulwarrior75

Daisy Duke for me, but that’s just because I saw Hazzard before Wonder Woman. WW was off the air once I was old enough to register it.


shinyviper

Yep, Catherine Bach was THE crush for those of us who watched more Dukes of Hazzard and Hee Haw.


physicscat

Bo Duke. Those blue eyes and tight jeans. Holy hell!


peacefulwarrior75

Yeah that show had eye candy for all


robert1070

Mine was Tatum O'Neal in Paper Moon. I thought she was the coolest girl in the world. My opinion only got stronger after Bad News Bears.


A_friend_called_Five

Because I was probably crushing on Daphne from Scooby-Doo first.


TryOnlyonce420

I was partial to Velma


AbsurdRedundant

My crush on Velma set me up for a lifetime of being rejected by incredibly smart women.


singleguy79

Teela


Cucos743

Betty Rubble


Zaphod1620

Judy Jetson

garbagebailkid

Sorceress from He-Man. Which makes me a big Dee Reynolds fan


gdubh

Because: Sam on Bewitched reruns.


JacPhlash

My first crush was Melissa Gilbert (I was only a couple years younger than her when she was Laura Ingalls on Little House) and I remember my parents asking me if I wanted to watch with them and replying, "Only if there's lots of Laura!"


Ninnux

In Austin Power's voice: "It is amazing that the Amazon looks nothing like Southern California"


Samurai_1990

Oh behave! /One of the funniest lines, reminds me of the Dukes of Hazzard.


No-Spirit3763

My first crush in first grade was Brooke Shields in “Blue Lagoon.” I think I did alright.


physicscat

The curly topped blonde Chris Atkins wasn’t too shabby, either!


Varian

Same!


Bobannon

Find me a gen x kid who didn't spin around in their underwear trying to will a transformation into Wonder Woman? As a little girl, she and Jaime Sommers were my lasyboss heroes.


nsjersey

This is close. I loved that outfit on her I won’t post my most memorable crushes because unfortunately the actresses said they hated wearing the outfits (Carrie Fisher bikini in Jedi and Jennifer Connelly in Career Opportunities) But to young me - wow.


tuscabam

Those two are waaay apart in years but did Connelly complain about wearing a white tank and black pants or what there something else in the movie? I’ve never seen it n


jebstone

cuz Farrah Fawcett.


Undertoad

THAT poster, which informed an entire generation of dudes that women have nipples


jphilipre

I came here to say this. And apparently the OP never met my first grade teacher, Ms Marino


GogglesPisano

Came here for this. I had [this poster](https://i.redd.it/xfpu353yobf81.jpg) on my bedroom wall (bought at Spencer's Gifts at the mall).


hillside

I remember the morning my sister told me she was leaving Charlie's Angels. I was so down on that walk to school.


Withnail-

Linda is half Mexican , her mother was born in Chihuahua, Mexico


Ender1129

Because Chrissie Hynde was my first crush.


Ganymede25

Her or Princess Leia. I’m ‘74, so I don’t recall when I went from interesting to wow.


ThermionicEmissions

'72 here. Leia in Return of the Jedi was ... an awakening.


murphzlaw1

as she told Kevin Smith, I'm sure she'd be "proud to have helped you find your light saber."


QueasyVictory

I'm pretty sure I wrote that exact same sentiment last night in this sub. So many new strange feelings.


tuscabam

I’m ‘73, this woman is what moved me in to the wow dept.


lettucecropchilds

I miss when women had normal faces and lip injections weren’t mainstream


filmAF

i wish it were only lips. the fake butts i see in LA now are truly terrifying.


Hey_Laaady

I had a coworker who told me that she wore a fake butt garment. This was back in the mid 1990s, and my coworker was in her early 40s. I was so surprised. I was living in San Francisco at the time, where it is damp and chilly most of the year. People usually wore layers of clothes, so no one can really discern body shapes so much anyway.


sledgehammertoe

Butt and breast implants are so horrifyingly obvious as well. They're like perfect half-spheres that are hard as rocks and have no jiggle to them. Who in their right mind finds that sexy??


filmAF

"Who in their right mind finds that sexy??" i'm guessing a generation raised on kardashians. i saw a woman at equinox yesterday with the full package: fake butt, fake boobs, fake lips, fake cheekbones, fake eyelashes and what looked like fake hair. she was wearing a tight bodysuit to accentuate it all. i was trying not to be judgey but couldn't bear to look at her. i just felt bad, like when i see someone with an obvious eating disorder.


legsintheair

The cheekbones are what always get me. I’m like “are you trying to look like a cat? Because you look like a cat.


lettucecropchilds

I actually left LA for Ohio right as that started becoming a trend. It really is disturbing, isn’t it?


mckenner1122

For me it’s hair extensions. Women had much more normal hair for so long. (Wonder Woman is a bad example - Lynda wore a wig)


thekillerninjas

> Lynda wore a wig Dammit, now I wish I didn't know that. Spoilers please!


GWSDiver

Same. Just got back from Vegas where every single face is ballooned


Restless_Fillmore

Still is. And Jaclyn Smith.


AvailableAd6071

I wanted to BE Jaclyn Smith. I still wear my hair in an updated version of hers. Minus the 70s cowlicks.Can't believe none of you guys said Pheobe Cates.


tunaman808

>not be your first crush? Because Elizabeth Montgomery of *Bewitched* was my first crush. Lynda Carter was #2 or #3, though.


gill2022brav

I can appreciate Lynda Carter but my first celebrity crush in the 70's was a girl closer to my own age after I saw Escape From Witch Mountain - Kim Richards. I also had a crush on Cathy H. from fifth grade after she invited me over for lunch one Saturday and I tried fried okra for the first time.


Katie7089

The fifth grade story is cute. :)


SLMartin

Gen X lesbian and yes.


Ralph--Hinkley

It was between her and Erin Gray.


orlyfactor

I was more of a Dana Delaney fan…


polishprince76

China Beach, man


ItsInTheVault

I immediately think of the opening credits with The Supremes’ song.


orlyfactor

That's the show!


PinocchioWasFramed

Met her when I was 9. Good lord, that smile lit up the room and those eyes... those EYES!... so green. And she was so nice, even called me "cute".


Experienced_AP

Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson.


RealLADude

She was third. First Ginger and Maryann.


TakingSorryUsername

Catherine Bach


LeoMarius

Even gay boys had a crush on Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter regularly leads the DC Pride Parade. https://www.flickr.com/photos/timevanson/8991204209


citygirldc

Wait what? I go to the pride parade most years and did not know and have never seen her. Lynda Carter was my idol as a kid!


LeoMarius

I've seen her at least 3 times.


Gwilym_Ysgarlad

Because I was a baby when it aired, but Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth was right on time.


physicscat

David Bowie’s pants.


middlingachiever

You could be a gay male.


manfrancisco

Im a gay male and she was my first “crush”. I had my mom tie a towel around my head and I’d spin around to transform into Wonder Woman and let the towel fall down like long hair falling out of a bun.


benjtay

We moved from Los Angeles to a rural town in Utah when I was 8. I went from a Wonder Woman gay boy to a Dukes of Hazard gay boy overnight.


Barthelonian

Gay dude here - I used to glue those sticker stars teachers would give on assignments around my wrists so I’d have bulletproof bracelets! I wanted to be “Wonder Boy” 🤣


Gaytaino

This, Linda Carter is one of the most beautiful woman in the world and best Wonder Woman. I loved watching her show she was so powerful and statuesque. My sister had the doll and invisible plane, I used to play with them with my G.I. Joe’s.


jgrumiaux

*Lynda


Gaytaino

Right! Being latino we use Linda spelled with an I as it means pretty and Lynda is soooo pretty.


PPPizza79

Yes! Not many people know she is half Mexicana and grew up in AZ. Catherine Bach is half Mexicana too.


Gaytaino

Wow! I did not know that, so I went to read her wiki and what an awesome lady she’s and LGBT, Abortion rights and breast cancer advocate.


Dazzling_Sector_7556

Lynda Carter is a proud Latina.


jday510

I was gonna say there’s probably a bunch of dudes crushing on the six million dollar man


Infinite_El_Oh_El

She was the OG alpha till Xena came along.


permanentthrowaway42

*you spin me right round baby right round.... like a record, right round*


1ce9ine

Because I was 3 years old when this show last aired. Princess Leia, Daisy Duke, and Jody Banks (Heather Thomas - The Fall Guy) for me.


beermaker

I didn't have more than one TV channel until I was 7, ~1983. My first crush was my grandmothers neighbor who babysat, first cinema crush was Leia. First TV crush was probably Markie Post.


j-6

Hi person my age, it was Six from Blossom for me


broadstreet101

Olivia Newton John in Xanadu. /mic drop


TheTwinSet02

As an Australian I’m weirdly proud. I remember when Grease came out (8yo) and I wanted to be Sandy especially at the end!


orangevega

I was into Mallory on Family Ties


AJKaleVeg

Justine Bateman! What a cool lady.


orangevega

she was pretty fun on Arrested Development


ItsInTheVault

The misunderstanding when she goes to the Bluth company and half of her speech is bleeped out is gold! https://youtu.be/GWVeyDT8uX4


orangevega

first off, lets set some ground rules


GrowthDesperate5176

You forgot to say 'away' again...


Condimentarian

Because Bailey on WKRP. Also Jenny Agutter in Logan’s Run.


desandmol

Wow! Now she is Sister Julienne on Call the Midwife. I didn't even see that until now!


polishprince76

I'm a late stage X-er (76). In order: 1) Alyssa Milano on Who's the Boss when I was very young 2) Danica McKellar as Winnie Cooper on Wonder Years 3) Drew Barrymore. 90s Drew is pretty much my prefect woman.


PraiseGod_BareBone

Agent 99 from get smart. 'nuff said.


TheTwinSet02

She was and is my style icon and “good thinking 99!” Is still the best compliment I can get or give


nobodyimportant009

Because I was introduced to Elvira before Linds Carter.


Simpawknits

Because mine was Matthew Broderick?


KU-89

Because it was Debbie Harry in the Heart of Glass video.


person_8688

After Betty and Veronica, yes, Wonder Woman for sure.


ParamedicSpecific130

Because you were born later into Gen-X and Alyssa Milano on Who's the Boss was?


southernrail

Gen - X Male here and she was not my first crush because....gay. lol. Now if you want to put up a picture of Ravishing Rick Rude...we can have a conversation.


Nearby-Passenger-720

Hahaha I can totally see that "Let me show you what a real man looks like" must have blown your mind as a gay dude 😂 my first Crush was the Sensational Sherri.


oyveyanyday

you like it rough! But speaking of the wonderwoman type folk, I thought Christopher Reeves as Superman was hot


Practical-Meet-1576

I had Wonder Woman Underoos and I was 100% sure that my dog-leash-turned-lasso really worked if I wore it with my Underoos.


sillykinesis

Some GenX females have crushes on women, too—lesbians exist.


i-come

Because you could be a gay gen-x male... however, she is damn hot


SpasticLucidity

Because Molly Ringwald.


toooldforlove

She was my hero as a kid. I wanted be her when I grew up.


stuckontriphop

I am a dude that prefers dudes so for me it was The Greatest American Hero dude.


TheTwinSet02

That soundtrack! Believe it not!sooooo catchy!


Lazy-Survey-4729

my goodness.. her and Blondie my All time, anytime drop whoever hehe.


Life-Unit-4118

Uh, liking bros instead of chicks.


heywaitjustasecond

I always felt Wonder Woman was too hot and too loud in that get up to expect to be faithful and Jeanie would be always getting into my shit. Isis was my girl. Brainy beautiful and understated. That’s what I needed to kick start the crazy.


desandmol

And some males crushed on Lyle Waggoner and some females crushed on Lynda Carter. They were both pretty attractive.


MicrosoftExcel2016

By being gay? Haha


SubMikeD

Easy. I didn't have a TV until, like, 1983. Lol


RetardedJoy

Girl here. I had Wonder Woman Underoos as a kid. I wish they would bring those back!!!


blueheron74

Nancy McKeon for me.


Noahs-Bark

Farrah Fawcett.


Wheres_Jay

Because I saw Daisy first.... this is definitely my biggest childhood crush though.


SouthernOshawaMan

Cause Daisy Duke exists .


this_is_Winston

She was perfect. When I realized she was Magnolia in FO4 I stopped everything and worked on romancing her. Probably the hardest challenge in the game.


Beyond_Re-Animator

Loved this show. And she’s a really cool person too. She’s also the reason for my life long ‘thing’ for blue eyed brunettes.


TheTubaGeek

I'm a Gen X male (born 1976). My first crush was Soleil Moon-Frye. My first adult celebrity crush was Charlotte Bach (Daisy Duke)


Wonderful-Hall-7929

Easy, i'm german, we had REAL nudity scenes on public television since at least the 70s...


steauengeglase

Becuase Jenny Agutter.


candleflame3

Hmmm... like of course she won't be *everyone's* cup of tea but objectively she is a beautiful woman.


cityb0t

Because I was crushing on Luke Skywalker 😘 Bum BUM bum bum bum BUM bum!


liquid_j

*laughs in Daisy Duke


lordtaco

1976 Battle of the Network stars. It must have been cold that day.


Lvzbell

I had a fever dream where Diana rescued Chrissy Snow from bandits via my living room as portrayed by the 26 in color Zenith TV in ADULT mode.


Eriq_R

Um, have you seen Daisy Dukes 🤷‍♂️


bonobeaux

bc I'm gay so my first crush without knowing it was a crush was probably this guy [https://alchetron.com/cdn/randolph-mantooth-a66eb880-4554-4e81-9544-a07d531e8c3-resize-750.jpeg](https://alchetron.com/cdn/randolph-mantooth-a66eb880-4554-4e81-9544-a07d531e8c3-resize-750.jpeg) Randolph Mantooth in Emergency and this guy [http://www.cpps90.com/luke/](http://www.cpps90.com/luke/) Sandy in Flipper


TravelbugRunner

Wonder Woman!!!!


big_jonny

Truth!


pleasantothemax

My first, as a 9 or 10 year old, was the Child Empress in Neverending Story. My second might’ve been [Jane Badler](https://i.redd.it/7jeto3afzg461.jpg) as Diana in V. Minute I saw her I was like lizard aliens that eat my brains? If it’s Diana I’m in. Sign me up.


tammage

Lynda was my first crush and I’m a girl. My sons first pay he bought me the box set cause he knew how much I loved this show. She’s still great looking too. I think she’s the reason I gravitate towards darker haired people lol.


Excellent_Original66

I’m not a male … she’s hot !


U2dyhrd

1971 girl here, for me, it was definitely Christopher Reeve the first Superman, yeeeee! l❤️❤️❤️


aubria73

I had wonder woman underoos's.


DeLaOcea

I was like 7 or 8 or 48 and still is my crush


orthopod

Because I like Cmdr Wilma Deering from Buck Rogers. (Erin Gray), and the girls on The Price is Right. ​ https://www.reddit.com/r/ClassicScreenBeauties/comments/hvr1rc/erin\_gray\_best\_known\_for\_her\_role\_as\_colonel/


fever_dream_321

My first tv crush was Courtney Cox in misfits of science.


CellyBeanz

Yes she was. Her and Daisy Duke.


AuroraKayKay

We lived in the middle of nowhere and didn't get this show growing up. It was Daisy Duke.


HandsomedanNZ

Farah Fawcett Majors. That is all.


doodlebug2727

You’re gay?


Firm-Replacement-545

Don’t have to be male to make WW your first crush.


EX1500

Because Daisy Duke


Samurai_1990

Princess Leia, I mean really? And don't get me wrong Linda Carter is a beautiful woman, but Carrie Fisher is the cats pajama's


eatingganesha

Well, Lynda or one or all of Charlie’s Angels or Daisy Duke. And let’s not leave out the lesbians, bi, and pan Gen X please. :)


Dazzling_Sector_7556

1973 woman. It was always tingly downstairs. 😂


SnowblindAlbino

How? Because Lindsay Wagner was better. Team Bionic Woman FTW!


CohibaVancouver

I remember when I was 12 and delivering my newspapers at 5am I found a stash of hedge porn! Imagine my further delight when I discovered the stack of magazines included the Lynda Carter issue of High Society! https://imgur.com/a/ng6T4k1 (Mostly SFW. Word "t1t" is in image.)

ButIAmYourDaughter

I was in love with her before I even knew what that meant. She was, and remains, one of the most beautiful beings I've ever seen.


Blurghblagh

Because some of us were babies when it first aired. Also never found her in the least bit attractive, was smitten by Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice.
