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:
[The alien Enik has made a startling discovery about the temporal doorway that has led him and the Marshalls to this world]
Enik:I cannot leave here. Nothing can leave here, unless an object of equal mass and temporal energy enters.
Will Marshall:Well, that means we can't leave either, unless three other people come in.
Enik:Yes, but there is more. You should not be here at all. Your presence here is the source of my problem. Look...
[Enik opens the time doorway onto a view of the Grand Canyon]
Will Marshall:It's Earth! Enik, if I had a parachute I could jump through!
Enik:Wait, there is more.
[Next Will sees himself, Rick, and Holly]
Will Marshall:That's us, on the river!
Enik:Pay attention now, this is the troubling part.

Loved it!, 31 May 2002
Author: seventag from North Carolina

As a child of the 70's I watched this show religiously! It use to scare me to death every time I saw the dinosaurs or the Sleestak! I recently saw an episode and it brought back so many wonderful childhood memories when I would get up early on Saturday mornings just to watch Marshall, Will and Holly! Oh yea, can't forget the Sleestak and Chaka!
