This is one of those shows that came out when the Krofft brothers were the hottest producers of children's shows around. As most people know, this was one of the elements that made up the Krofft Supershow and it was probably the least popular of the three elements. When I looked at this show I couldn't help but think that I saw this before, and I did. This show is almost an exact copy of Land of the Giants, but instead of crash landing on another planet, the three heroes crash land on an island inhabited by a creepy scientist and his dwarf assistant who shrink them down from their normal height to a height of about six inches. The rest of the show featured the kids trying to get back to their normal heights before being caught by the doctor. Jay Robinson was perfectly cast as Doctor Shrinker and Billy Barty was his usual funny self as his assistant Hugo. Too bad the same can't be said for the three younger members of this cast.
