Renee O'Conner as Gabrielle (Xena: Warrior Princess)



Gabrielle was everything you could want in a sidekick, loyal, trustworthy, a good friend and frequently in need of rescue from some perilous situation.

Missed Opportunities: The Robinson Girls


The television series Lost In Space, even though a Sci-Fi series, provided many chances for a tie-up scene for one of the shows lovely ladies. However, Maureen (June Lockheart), Judy (Marta Kristin) and Penny Robinson (Angela Cartwright) all escaped any serious restraints for the run of the show. You can't tell me that there were not any Space Pirates, Intergalatic White Slavers or Dastardly Aliens willing to kidnap three beautiful Earth women. Too bad really, seeing one, two or all three tied up would have been out of this world.

Noel Neill as Lois Lane (Adventures of Superman)

Lois Lane is the definition of a classic Damsel In Distress, and Noel Neill played her perfectly.

The nosey reporter always poking around for a story even though she was warned not to, ending up bound, gagged and in peril.


Fortunately she had Superman to save her and allow her to get herself in more trouble next episode.

Daphne Blake (Scooby Doo)



I would have liked to seen Sarah Michell Gellar tied and gagged more convincingly, she would have looked incredible!

Missed Opportunity: Wrangler Jane (F-Troop)

Wrangler Jane (played by Melody Patterson) was the keeper of the general store in the TV series F-Troop. Being the only female character on a show set in the wild west, you would think there would be numerous chances for her to be put in distressing situations given all the renegade Indians, rustlers, outlaws, con men and thieves around. But no, not a single rope or gag that I can recall for this lovely lady, which is too bad because she probably would have been a great struggler and 'Mmph'er.

Patrice Camhi (Martinez) as Victoria Escalante (Zorro 1990)






Patrice was a perfect damsel-in-distress and looked beautiful, with or without ropes.
