Plot Synopsis:

Kaptain Kool and the Kongs (Superchick, Nashville, Turkey, and for the first season, Flatbush) were a colorful rock band who acted as hosts of this weekly show. Besides introducing the various shows, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs would performs songs and participate in various skits. The first season featured episodes of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, Dr. Shrinker, Wonderbug and for a short time, Lost Saucer reruns. During the second season, only Wonderbug stayed and Magic Mongo and Bigfoot and Wildboy were added.


During the first season, Kaptain Kool and the Kongs had a very "glammed" out look, like a cross between KISS, David Bowie, and the Archies. For the second season, they lost Flatbush and toned down their image a bit and wore matching outfits. Kaptain Kool and the Kongs went on to make appearances on other Krofft produced shows, like the Donny and Marie Show and the Krofft Superstar Hour.
