Derry Daring

1975 saw the release of Derry Daring by Ideal Toys. In an apparent attempt to create a character more appealing to the female demographic, the action girl of today was equipped to handle any number of daring scenarios as well as any guy. Her skills included: heroic rescuing, mountain climbing, automobile mechanics, stunt cycling, rodeo riding, and of course – simultaneously filming and reporting the news in the safest manner possible. Derry possessed all the technical skill of her counterpart, Mr. Knievel, minus the years of brain damage. She was likely the inspiration behind April O’Neil, the Pink Ranger, Lara Croft and many others to follow.
