Waggoner rose to fame thanks to a 7 year run on The Carol Burnett Show, a role he got after almost becoming Batman in the famous 1960's television series. Ultimately that role went to Adam West, but he would get another chance to work in the DC Universe after being cast as Trevor in Wonder Woman in 1975.

Fans can actually watch Waggoner and Carter in action via DC Universe, which has the original Wonder Woman TV series available to stream.
