Plot Synopsis:

Orphaned at a young age, Wildboy was raised in the Pacific Northwest by Bigfoot, a large, hairy man-thing. Together, Bigfoot and Wildboy combated the various forces of evil in their part of the country. Besides being extremely strong, Bigfoot could also use super powered jumps to get to high places or to cover far distances. Helping (and occasionally hindering) Bigfoot and Wildboy were Suzie (first season only), the 12 year old daughter of the Ranger Lucas, and Cindy (second season only), an archeology student.


Originally, Bigfoot and Wildboy was one of the featured series on the Krofft Supershow. Each episode was broken down into two 15 minute segments. Almost a year after the Krofft Supershow went off the air, ABC brought back the series as a standalone show and aired new episodes of the show during the summer of 1979. The new episodes were a half hour in length and they were also the last Krofft show to air on Saturday mornings in the 70s.


(May 2008) The first season of the Krofft Supershow is currently being show in California. If the station follows their previous pattern, they will also air the second season of the Supershow, with Bigfoot and Wildboy, after they air the first season. More information is available here.
