The Krofft Supershow was a live-action adventure/musical variety series produced by Sid and Marty Krofft.

Hosted by the made-for-TV rock group Kaptain Kool and the Kongs, the show featured live-action adventure segments such as Electrawoman and Dynagirl, two female reporters with superpowers; Wonderbug, about a talking car; Dr. Shrinker, "an evil man with an evil mind" who shrank teens B.J., Brad, and Gordie to miniature proportions; and reruns of The Lost Saucer.

For the 1977-78 season, Wonderbug was dropped, and two new segments were added: inept genie Magic Mongo and Bigfoot and Wildboy, whose concept is self-explanatory.

In 1978 the show moved to NBC, and the Bay City Rollers joined as the new hosts. In honor of its new stars, the show was retitled The Bay City Rollers Show, but even hunky Scottish pop stars weren't enough to buoy up the program's poor ratings. After only four months on its new network, the show was cancelled.
The 1977-78 season was named The Krofft Supershow II.
