Wonder Woman's spinning costume change
In the Wonder Woman tv show (1975-1979), Wonder Woman changed into her costume by spinning really fast.  Prior to that in the comics, she changed into her costume in a variety of ways,but since the show it has become the standard costume change. The earliest instance seems to be Wonder Woman #228 (January 1977). More information can be found here and here.

Wonder Girl's Alter Ego
In the Wonder Woman tv show (1976), Wonder Girl appeared as Diana's younger sister, Drusilla.  In Wonder Girl #1 (November 2007), Wonder Girl uses Drusilla as an alias.
