Steigler (John Hillerman), a Nazi agent, has defected to the Allied Forces and agrees to give away all the secrets he knows - which would be a blow to Nazi agents everywhere, so they decide to have him abducted by Erica Belgard's (Gretchen Corbett) giant and trained gorilla Gargantua (Mickey Morton) - shades of Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue here - a gorilla so powerful he could even take on Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter).

And wouldn't you know it, soon enough, Gargantua has a chance to fight Wonder Woman when she rescues Steigler. But Wonder Woman does not defeat Gargantua by brute force but by compassion ... and soon enough she and the gorilla become friends.

When Erica Belgard and her men however want to retrieve the gorilla, her spell over the animal seems to be broken ... and in the end, wouldn't you know it, all the baddies are thrown into the slammer while Wonder Woman brings her gorilla friend back to Africa, where he belongs ...

 

Believe it or not, I have seen lots of giant gorilla films ... but never have i seen a gorilla suit that was quite as unconvincing as this one. And the bad gorilla suit paired with a ridiculous story should of course make a bad show, right ?

Wrong, this episode is quite so hilarious in its pure campiness that it's simply hard to resist, and it seems that everyone involved was somehow aware of this. Now I don't want to say it's great TV, it's just totally entertaining in its badness.
