Knock Knock. Who's there? Wonder Woman's body! Is that it?

I'm looking for a kids joke that some how involves Wonder Woman's body, possibly as the punch line. All that is remembered is the following: "Knock Knock? Who's there? Wonder Woman's Body!" and laughter ensues. It was told by my sister-in-law in the 1980s when she was a wee one, so it might just be little kid humor, but I'm hoping there might be more to this joke.

I wonder if there could have been a "knocker knocker" reference in there?

We used to crack up at "Knock Knock - Who's there? Mickey Mouse's underwear" - could it be that (but with WW)? (as in, she told it as "body" because she was too young to understand the joke was the rhyme?)

Lynda Carter had big boobs, sometimes referred to as "knockers", that were accented by the costume. Hence the "knock knock".

This could be a holding the tongue joke ("Wonder Woman's body" sounds slightly like "Wonder Woman's potty" if you pinch your tongue while saying it). We had a similar one at my school: say "Wonder Woman has a big lasso" while holding your tongue. Hilarity ensues (if you are 9).

Knock-knock!
Who’s there?
One door.
One door who?
One door woman (Wonder Woman).


I suppose you could add her body there, as well.

Similarly:

I seem to recall a joke that ended with "Wonder Woman's underwear". I think it involved the "One door" joke.

Thanks for the thoughts! I'll pass them by the original joke-teller, to see if any sound familiar (decades after the joke was told, but we'll see).
