A Small War Aka Terrible Toys 2
25 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

A giant kid stages a war between "the little people" with his army of toys (which are of the same scale as the earthlings).

Wow, I am the first to review this classic episode! In the third season of Irwin Allen's Voyage to the bottom of the Sea series there was an episode titled, Terrible Toys, about invaders from space who used killer toys against the Seaview crew. Irwin went on record as saying the hour was one of his two favourite episodes of Voyage.

With that in mind you can't help but wonder if Irwin himself was busy on the set of this episode giving out ideas to the writers/crew?

Voyage's Terrible Toys used more effective music over the hour than A Small War does, but other than that point...this Giants adventure is a knockout!

I actually enjoyed this episode more as an adult than as a child. As a child I found the over-the-top giant kid too hard to relate to as I was the same age as him.

Special note, things get so out of control in this hour that even co-pilot Dan goes against the Captain's orders. Normally it is just Mark who does this, but Mark does his bit as well.
