Danger! Danger! Lost In Space Was A Cartoon...For One Week
31 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

A spacecraft of the future becomes lost in space, and then it lands on a planet of frog-looking aliens.

About the only interesting thing is that it was made in the first place. Those Lost In Space (1965-68) re-runs were obviously doing well in 1973 so they made a cartoon. We get the expected "based on the TV series created by Irwin Allen" credit but they need not of bothered. Irwin Allen's Swiss Family Robinson (1975-76) series actually had more in common with Lost In Space than this. But I am not here to totally trash this cartoon.

I guess you could say that the opening nine minutes of animated LIS is least some effort is made in putting some dramatic music over the action scenes in space (the same music would later be used in Barbera's Challenge Of The Superfriends). This cartoon actually works better with the volume on your TV off. Listening to The Robot without Dick Tufeld doing the voice is painful. Listening to Jonathan Harris still being the year two-fool is painful. Yes, turn the volume off.

However, even a lack of volume can't save this hour once we get into the 10th minute. The minute the "Jupiter 2" lands on Planet X the aliens appear in a second. No suspense. No mystery. You begin to wonder if Barbera ever even watched the original LIS! It becomes unwatchable and painful.
