Will Robinson (as Billy Mumy)
Dr. Zachary Smith / Daddy Zach


Once again, Dr. Smith's character flaws lead him into trouble. His avarice triggers a bejeweled crown, summoning an alien race from Andronica who ostensibly ask Will to be their king (since Will wears the crown when they arrive). Will declines and Dr. Smith thinks himself cleaver by cunningly veering their interest onto him instead, thereafter becoming into a royal pain (ready to behead Don for past grievances). Truth is, the crown is a baited hook seeking to latch onto the worst of all men. (Dr. Smith can't remove it from his own head till Will, pure of heart, lifts it off easily.)

The Fake Smith Is Rather Funny
14 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Dr Smith becomes an alien ruler.

It took a few repeat viewings before I liked this hour, but yes, it is rather good. The fake Smith does actually make me laugh and the storyline is rather clever.

Kevin Hagen is here and he appeared as a guest star in all of Irwin Allen's Big Four TV shows. He would also play an alien with weird make-up again in Time Tunnel's Raiders From Outer Space...that hour is a must see!
