Ranger Porter Ricks is responsible for the animal and human life in Coral Key Park, Florida. Stories center on his 15-year-old son Sandy and 10-year-old Bud and, especially, on their pet dolphin Flipper.
Rick Marshall is a park ranger who takes his two kids, Will and Holly, on a rafting trip down a river. During the trip, an earthquake occurs which somehow opens up a rift in time, propelling the Marshalls into a land populated by dinosaurs, ape-men, and the dreaded Sleestak. Later in the series, Rick manages to find his way home and is replaced by Uncle Jack (who had rafted down the same river looking for his family). Written by
Spencer Milligan (Park Ranger Rick Marhall) left the television show after the first two seasons over a salary dispute with creators Sid Krofft and Marty Krofft. In an interview for the 2009 movie, Milligan said "We had a difference of opinion, let's put it this way, on using my face for stuff and paying me - lunch boxes, compasses - where they were selling them and I thought it was only fair that everyone should get their fair share." To handle his departure, the storyline was that his character, Rick Marshall disappeared, having may or may not have returned home, and at the same time, his brother, Uncle Jack (Ron Harper), while searching for the trio, stumbled into the "Land of the Lost" and was reunited with his niece and nephew.

I cannot leave here. Nothing can leave here, unless an object of equal mass and temporal energy enters.
Well, that means we can't leave either, unless three other people come in.
Yes, but there is more. You should not be here at all. Your presence here is the source of my problem. Look...

Do keep in mind that for the vast majority of those posting here, we are looking at the series through adult eyes, yet the show was never intended for adults. This show was extremely well written for what it was, and for it's intended audience.
If you look at the show today as an adult, accepting the fact that the show was created for kids only, you would then see just how incredibly well-written it was. My favorite episode? I have two. The first is the one where they find the bones and uniform of a soldier from either the Civil War or the Revolutionary War (I can't remember which), and then the one where an alternate Marshall Will and Holly are found sticking out of a wall in a cave. See? For a Saturday morning kid's show, it was incredible. It wasn't the West Wing, but it never was intended to be that, either.
