Chris and Christy Cross are Micro Woman and Super Stretch, a fictional, shape-shifting, husband and wife crime fighting team. They were the first Black Superhero duo and the first Black Husband and Wife superhero duo to appear in a Saturday Morning Cartoon.
Chris and Christy Cross were an average suburban couple that turned into a shape-shifting, husband and wife crime-fighting team. Scientist Chris Cross discovered a way to change his body structure to become malleable allowing him to stretch like rubber and take virtually any shape, Christy could shrink to microscopic size. Their dog Trouble tagged along on their adventures.
They appeared as a segment in the Tarzan and Super 7 cartoon that aired on CBS. The Micro Woman and Super Stretch segment was produced by Filmation. They made their first appearance on September 9, 1979 and ran for 11 episodes.
