Did You Know?

Trivia:
During the final season, the Marshalls and Chaka moved from their cave to a Sleestak temple. A popular myth for the reason of this set-change is tied into the fire that destroyed the cave sets for another Krofft show Sigmund and the Sea Monsters. However, this fire took place during the second season of Sigmund, at which time Land of the Lost would have been in production of only its first season. The first two seasons of Land of the Lost were taped at a different studio (General Service Studios in Hollywood) entirely from that of Sigmund. The show then moved to Goldwyn Studios for its third season. This was the studio where the fire did occur two years prior that destroyed the Sigmund sets.See more »
Quotes:
Will Marshall:It's funny - I've walked this way hundreds of times and I've never seen this pylon.
Enik:Nor I, Will Marshall. And I have been in this valley many times longer than you.
Cha-Ka:Cha-Ka think it's *new* pylon!
Will Marshall:Either that, Cha-Ka, or it's been invisible all this time.
Enik:That is not logical.
Will Marshall:Now, Enik, if you've been in the Land of the Lost that much longer than we have, you ought to know by now that not everything here is logical.
Enik:That is logical.

This show rules - forget the crappy 1991 remake!, 7 September 1999
Author: xman1974 from United States

Yes! This is the BEST Sid and Marty Kroft show that ever was. The first two seasons are brilliant from the great theme song ("Marshall, Will, and Holly on a river expedition ran into the greatest earthquake ever knoooooooown....." to the above average scripts, special fx, and acting.

However, the third season really fell apart and the two kids on the show starting singing these horrible musical numbers. Also, their dad left the show to be replaced by their uncle and the scripts got hokey and contrived.

All that being said...My overall of the opinion of the show remains really favorable though. The Sleekstacks scared the doo-doo out of me as a kid although they never could move any faster than in a shuffle. For a kid's show, this one was REALLY good and I will remember it forever.

Forget the 1991 remake...It is stupid beyond belief isn't even worth comment.
