5. The Abba girls
I confess my very first childhood crush was on Agnetha and Anni-frid. My siblings were all teenagers when Abba-mania came to the Drake household (late 70s). I was four years old. Ahhhh young love.
4. Daisy Duke
I'm sure EVERY boy alive during the Dukes of Hazzard television series (1979-1985), had a crush on Daisy.
3. Wonder Woman
Who can forget the lasso throwing, bad-guy thumping Wonder Woman (1976-1979)? I guess she was everything a five-year old wanted in a lady.
2. Princess Leia
Princess Leia Organa made it to number two. She was definately a woman who could take care of herself. I bet Han Solo camped in the lounge a lot.
1. Wilma Deering
Coming in at number one (none of the others come close) is definately the lovely Wilma Deering from 'Buck Rogers in the 25th Century' (1979-1981). I know I'm not the only guy who had a crush on Wilma growing up (right Lesmond J?).
It's amazing how the seductiveness and the tight body suits of the 70's didn't even register in my young mind. The age of innocence was great. Looking back, I think the most attractive aspect about them was that most of them were in cool TV programmes/movies with lots of action and explosions and guns.
Well, almost 3 decades later, I am a very happily married man, and have an incredible wife! How does DW compare to my childhood crushes? DW blows them all away. She's real too... not a creation of TV land!
