LOST IN SPACE: The Raft / Irwin Allen Productions - 1965
Here's my last post for the month, it comes in the form of an adventure in space, the lost kind... Enjoy kids!
This story starts with the robot ready to launch one of Will's little experiments, kind of a message in a bottle shot into space... Lame!! Great shot though.
Will and Penny watch the fun from the safety of the ship...
After the launch, bro and sis go outside to see if the little rocket made it out of the atmosphere. It comes tumbling down after it explodes and dad steps in to save them with a force field!!.. What?!!
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our rocket piggy bank, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a little sample from... THE RAFT!
You only have to watch a few of these episodes to see what a total jerk Dr. Smith is, it's always something with him.
And, here's a portrait of the selfish little doctor as he overthinks some simple problem.
Jeez guys!! Learn how to read your gauges, cripes!
Major West is putting the final touches on their 2-man space craft, aka The Raft. Gee, I wonder what Will has in mind here?..
Right, he and Dr. Smith decide to take the craft into space and look for Earth... Oh sure!
Dr. Smith thinks he's found the Earth and so they land on the planet.
This thing is just standing there watching the two wander around aimlessly. I don't think this is Earth Dr. Smith, you freakin' moron!
Of course, Professor Robinson and the gang have to track them down and dad shoots the poor bush monster in the back, bringing this adventure to an abrupt end...
But, wouldn't you know it, the crew encounters a meteor storm and sets up next week's episode. Check in Wednesday for more from... The Dungeon!!
