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.

    Why didn’t Micro Woman shrink and enter Super Stretch’s body in an episode? Because of my fetish for the insides of people’s (only men’s) bodies and my attraction to black men, that would’ve been my favorite episode and I’m appalled they didn’t make that into an episode. Instead, I love the episode of Captain Planet where the Planeteers are shrunk and added to Kwame’s water canteen alongside some parasites.

      Oi, olha, eu me lembro de um episódio que sim a micro woman entrou no ouvido do homem borracha Isso porque nesse episódio ele estava sendo controlado por alienígenas super pequenos, e ela teve que encolher umas três vezes.

      She did; in the episode with their alternate universe evil counterparts, Superstarch and Magnawoman, Microwoman tricked their doubles by shrinking down and (using glasses from somewhere) entering Superstretch, who made himself look like a tv, she pretended to be a reporter.
