Voice of Poison Ivy, Diane Pershing: “Every time that Poison Ivy had appeared on the series before, she mainly interacted with other characters, like Batman and Commissioner Gordon, as the “sexy woman.” In this case, she was playing off another antagonist. I’m a feminist, so Paul’s script was right up my alley in the sense that I knew what I could bring to it. Ivy’s the alpha person in the relationship, and Harley is clingy, needy, and looking for approval. It was a classic combination. I remember at the time thinking that this relationship was important for Poison Ivy, because she didn’t have friends. So even when Harley screwed up, she would be like, “It’s OK.””

I've got a question for you. We seem to be of the same generation (or at least obsessed with the same generation). When I was a kid there was a cartoon show on where the heroine was Isis. Do you remember this at all? It was around the same time/style as Thundaar the Barbarian, but I cannot remember the name.
Filmation had a live action “The Secrets of Isis” or “Isis”, from 1975-1977. The animated version though was part of Tarzan and the Super 7. According to wikipedia:
Isis later appeared in animated form (voiced by Diane Pershing) on the Freedom Force segment of Filmation’s Tarzan and the Super 7 show in 1980. The animated Isis also made a guest appearance on the Filmation cartoon Hero High in 1981 (voiced by Linda Gary).
You can find some episodes on Youtube. I’m going to make a couple of GIFs from the opening credits of that now for ya.
