A Saturday morning kid's show that included ten minute episodes of a serial called Mystery Island.
This review will only centre on Mystery Island because I don't care about the rest of Skatebirds.
Mystery Island (not to be confused with Danger Island) is about three people (adult male, girl, boy) and a robot who are on a plane that is brought down on an island...run by a guy who wants to rule the world.
16 ten minute episodes of Mystery Island were made and they all feature the original Lost In Space robot, painted white, given a different voice, changed in other ways, but you can never shake the feeling that you are watching the original LIS robot!!!??? Weird.
Do you remember The Fossil Man from Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea? His look-a-like is on the island as well.
Various Irwin Allen/Batcave computer banks fill the bad guy's home.
In one episode the gang are all frozen in time.
Does this sound like some long lost Irwin Allen production? Yes and no. Allen did not make it. It is not as good as Allen's 1960s science fiction shows, not as good as Allen's 1978 Captain Nemo, but it sort of gets you hooked even when watched today on YouTube.
Give it a go.
