If you think about it, Bigfoot and Wildboy was kind of a two man – er, one man, one Sasquatch – A-Team. Orphaned at a young age, Wildboy (Joseph Butcher) was raised in the Pacific Northwest by the legendary Bigfoot (Ray Young), a large, intelligent, hairy man-thing. Together, Bigfoot and Wildboy fought the various forces of evil in their part of the country – and there were lots of them.
Besides being extremely strong, Bigfoot could also use super-powered jumps to get to high places or to cover long distances.
Helping – and occasionally hindering – Bigfoot and Wildboy were Suzie (Monika Ramirez), the 12-year-old Native American daughter of the Ranger (in the first season), and Cindy (Yvonne Regalado), a pretty teenaged archaeology student (in the second season).
Bigfoot and Wildboy originally aired in 1976 as a regular 15-minute segment on The Krofft Supershow. ABC brought back the series as a standalone show and aired 12 new 30-minute episodes during the summer of 1979.
