Web Woman Cartoon from Filmation

SYNOPSIS:[]

"Web Woman" is the primary alias used by Kelly Webster, a fictional character and cartoon superheroine. She is featured on the 1978–1980 television series Tarzan and the Super 7 by Filmation. Web Woman's voice was provided by actress Linda Gary.

Kelly saves the life of an alien insectoid when he is swept into a raging river during a thunderstorm. In gratitude, the alien presents her with a mysterious ring, which grants her the powers of the entire insect kingdom. The alien proves to be an agent of the mysterious entity named Scarab, the guardian of the space station Citadel 7. Exactly how she comes into contact with Scarab after she receives the ring is unknown, but she becomes Web Woman soon afterward. Her transformation from Kelly Webster into Web Woman is brought on by a vocal command, combined with the power of the ring, that is spoken like this:

"Insects of the world...small creatures of the cosmos...lend me your powers--NOW!"

The outfit Kelly wears as Web Woman consists of a pink leotard with a mask, boots, and a belt. She has a variety of weapons, such as a webline from her utility belt, and the ring can produce sleeping gas, an energy beam that solidifies into a spider web for ensnaring enemies and an force field of energized webbing. Web Woman is aided in her missions for Scarab by a furry little insectoid-like alien named Spinner, who is often used for comic relief, and she travels in a spider-shaped, eight-legged flying saucer which she calls the Web-Trac.

Presumably, Scarab's planet is home to a highly unusual range of insectoids, some of which are, most likely, far in advance of any insect species known on Earth. This conclusion can be drawn because Earth insects do not have web-spinning capabilities, and are not known to have advanced far enough in their evolutions to be able to communicate intelligently with humans or employ human, much less advanced alien, technology.
