Supie made his animated television debut with "The New Adven-tures Of Superman" on CBS in September 16, 1966 and ran through September 2, 1967. It was later rebroadcast from Sep-tember 2, 1969 through September 5, 1970. It was a half-hour animated series produced by Filmation, and a year later it was teamed-up with Aquaman in "The Superman / Aquaman Hour Of Adventure." Along with Aquala and his wife Mera, Aquaman made the transition to animated television with new episodes specially produced for this series. Basically it consisted of six seven-minute cartoons: two episodes of Superman [repeated from the previous series "The New Adventures of Superman"]; two new episodes of Aquaman [produced for this series]; two episodes of Superboy every other show [repeated from the previous Superman series], all of them alternated with two episodes of "Guest Stars" car-toons every other show, featuring the debut of other DC Comics characters like Atom, The Flash, Green Latern, Hawkman, Hawk-girl, Justice League of America and Teen Titans. Oddly enough, the Justice League didn't feature Wonder Woman but instead the Teen Titans featured Wonder Girl, and hence this is considered the animated debut of Wonder Woman. The reason for this exclusion remains unknown but it certainly served for inspiration in the future creations of Hanna-Barbera cartoons of Superfriends.

Below you'll find description of the three episodes of Teen Titans featuring Wonder Girl. As mentioned above these episodes were part of the segment "Guest Superheroes" featuring two episodes every other show.
Aqualad, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash and Speedy are alerted to an invasion of a giant, monstrous robot. The team attacks the creature from the air, land and sea and find that it was unleashed by an invasion platform from an alien race. The Titans take on an army of robots and destroy the alien base.
The Teen Titans are called to a small country hamlet which is being attacked by a hideous monster from another world. Two other creatures also menace the area. The teens are able to subdue them, even as they are mistakenly attacked by the space hunters who jettisoned these creatures to Earth in aid of saving their ship.
Speedy and Aqualad, testing the new Titans Copter, are forced down in a remote outpost in northern Asia. At the same time, they have discovered a frighten boy named Terry, the son of a missing explorer. Following the boy, the two teens find that the boy’s father has been captured by a tribe of throwbacks, and they are soon captured as well. Worried about their teammates' disappearance, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash speed to the signaled area of the boys' last position, and Kid Flash is quickly able to restore Speedy's bow and quiver to him, and their united efforts allow all the captives to escape. Once the Carters are safe and reunited, Wonder Girl has a good cry, the boys snicker and giggle, and the team and the Carters agree to never reveal the location of the tribe.
