Lost in Space

A FURTHER HANDFUL of hokum from the great IRWIN ALLEN, here set in the year – ho ho – 1997, where, thanks to a dangerously over-populated planet, the Space Family Robinson (do you see?) trundle off on a five-year gadabout to find more lebensreum. Only the ship was fucked and they became LOST…IN…SPACE… On board: GUY WILLIAMS (Professor John R.), JUNE LOCKHART (his missus Maureen), kids Judy, Will and Penny, a robot called The Robot with vacuum cleaner arms, plus the requisite Irwin pantomime villain, “devious” Dr. Zachary Smith (JONATHAN HARRIS). Escapades became more bonkers as the years went on, with giant frogs, cardboard craters and talking trees contriving to prevent the Robinsons forever from turning the map the right way up and going home.

    “Never fear, Smith is here!”

    “The pain… the pain…”

    “You bubble-headed booby!”

    “My back is feeling very delicate today.”

    “Nonsense, Will my boy, there’s nothing frightening in this cave… Agh!”

    “My masterpiece!”


    More catchphrases than The Fast Show.
