A Freakin' Merry LOST IN SPACE Xmas! / The Toymaker - 1967
Well, I ended up with the Xmas day posting this year, I literally pulled this one out of my.. Err... Knot hole! Just got this set this week, and, I found this LOST IN SPACE episode actually had an Xmas tie in, soooo... Happy Newk Year, Ever'bloody!
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our mile high coal pile, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here are some Xmas sounds from... THE TOYMAKER!
The story starts with Will and Dr. Smith coming across a strange machine just sitting in the middle of nowhere! They figure out it's some kind of toy dispenser.
The robot warns Dr. Smith to quit screwing around, but, NOOO!.. Again, he's sure he's the only one that knows what they're doing, a reoccurring fatal flaw of his.
Some of the technology on this show requires an ample helping of your suspended disbelief. Anyway, Dr. Smith disappears into the big box and Will runs back to the ship to tell his mommy!
So, mom goes and tells dad and Major West all about another problem caused by Dr. Smith. As always, they have to stop what they're doing (usually some life or death situation) and help.
In the meantime, Will runs back to the box and, what else, gets himself trapped in there too.
They meet up with O. M. (Old Man), played by Walter (JACK THE GIANT KILLER) Burke. He's friendly but a little kookie! And, he doesn't like Dr. Smith.
Love these two shots, a typical device the men used throughout the series, this time used to lower some dynamite into a crevasse and then Professor Robinson with the robot, in red.
Back in the toy factory, Will hears some Xmas noises coming from behind a boarded up area. The little beaver tears a plank off and him and Dr. Smith watch the festivities back on Earth!
But, one of the old toymaker's wind up monsters is on the prowl and corners the two. The despicable doctor uses Will as a human shield yet again when faced with any type of danger!
The owner of the toy machine, Fritz (mouth pop, heal click) Feld, shows up and everything turns out hunky dory, except for Dr. Smith...
Professor Robinson invites everyone to go fishing to celebrate the event!.. A Merry Xmas to all, and to all, see you tomorrow!
