A small review....
7 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a small part (get it?) of "The Krofft Supershow", "Dr. Shrinker" was one of the group of live-action cartoon-like shows they would show between scenes of music group Kaptain Kool and the Kongs singing and cutting up.

In it, the good doctor (Robinson, always good for a sinister chuckle) plays it like a latter-day Vincent Price as he shrinks three unsuspecting teens who happen onto his island lair, while his accomplice Hugo (the great Billy Barty) had his own evil agenda.

Every week, the "Shrink-ees" would fight against the "Dr." as well as island storms, marauding monsters (like ants and mice and such), and even such man-made disasters as a miniature robot (placed by the good doctor), that tried to disrupt their idyllic existence.

It was cute but, as were all of the Krofft series, repetitive. Not much changed and that made goings-on not very intriguing.

Who knows; they remade "Land of the Lost", didn't they?

Four stars for "Dr. Shrinker", mostly for small returns (ha ha).
