What was Lost in Space?

Lost in Space was created and produced by Irwin Allen. It was first shown on television on CBS on September 15, 1965. 

In 1988, a Movie version was also made. There are rumours that a new tv show is in the works.

Lost in Space Original TV Series was originally shown on television in the Usa from 1965 to 1968. 83 episodes were made in total of the Lost in Space Classic TV Show. It was shown for three seasons. Only the first season (29 episodes) was in black and white.

The TV Show was  about the Robinson Family who were on a mission to colonise Alpha Centauri. During the first episode Doctor Smith, a saboteur had become trapped aboard the Jupiter 2 and due to his sabotages the Jupiter 2 became Lost in Space.

The show was set in 1997 which was the distant future at the time of the shows making.

Who were the crew / cast of Lost in Space TV Show?

- Professor John Robinson (Guy Williams) was the father and was an astrophysicist. Guy Williams is also famously known as the star in Zorro TV Show.

- Maureen Robinson (June Lockhart) was the wife of John Robinson and was a biochemist. June Lockhart was also on Petticoat Junction tv show and Lassie.

- Will Robinson (Bill Mumy) was the only son in the Robinson Family. Bill Mumy has also featured in the Babylon 5 TV science fiction TV Series.

- Penny Robinson (Angela Cartwright) was the second daughter. Angela Cartwright appeared in the Sound of Music Film.

- Doctor Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris) started in the first season as schemer. As the series progressed Dr Smith's character became more lazy, cowardly and humorous. One of Dr Smith's most famous saying was 'the pain, the pain'.

- Robot was the Environmental Control Robot (model B9). The Robot was created by Robert Kinoshita, the designer of Robby the Robot (Forbidden Planet). The actor in the Robot was Bob May. The voice of the Robot was by Dick Tufeld who also narrated the tv show.

- Judy Robinson (Marta Kristen) was the eldest daughter.

Other Info:

* The space ship was called Jupiter 2. It looks like a flying saucer.

* The Space Pod was a mini manned spacecraft. It was show in Season 3.

* The Chariot was a ground based vehicle which used traction wheels and was used to transport the Robinsons.

* The Lost in Space theme music was written by John Williams. The first and second season used the same theme music and the same tv show intro and ending show. For the third and final season John Williams wrote a more up-beat theme and the tv show titles were changed and the intro used a count-down '7,6,5,...'.


- Space Opinion:

When you listen to the first theme it gives you a feeling as if they are Lost in Space. In the second theme, the music makes you feel like you are going on an adventure. - Leave your feelings and thoughts in our Space Projects Club!
