Two maintenance workers are loading meals into a rocket capsule when the dopey one, Junior, mis-hears Barney say, "Lunch!" and presses the LAUNCH button. Rocketed into deep space, they drift from planet to planet, looking for a way home and getting into wacky adventures. Written by

Just when you thought they couldn't get any wilder, the Krofft brothers make a kids' outer space show with Gilligan! Well, maybe not Gilligan per se, but it's Bob Denver, so it might as WELL be Gilligan.
Seems Junior (Denver) and Barney (McCann - another heavy-set, older co-star...coincidence?) are loading food onto a space rocket and instead of "lunch", Junior pushes the "launch" button and sends them both out into the deep recesses of space, seeking a way home every week.
Along the way, they pick up a furry little alien they nickname Honk (Maloney), who honks whatever it says. Clever, eh?
As a matter of fact, it WAS clever in a Saturday morning kiddie show way, and McCann and Denver made good with the lines and have a knack for comedy. And when it comes to weird alien characters, who knows weird better than Sid and Marty?
It was a short-lived series, but it was a well-remembered one, thanks to the talent herein and the effort they all put in every week. Sure did make me look forward to Saturday mornings, that's for sure!
Nine stars for "Far Out Space Nuts", or "Gilligan's Planet"!
Oh, wait...Filmation already did that one. Never mind.
