Shows Cartoon cast .. Linc, Craig Robinson & Deana
Carmichael PLUS the ROBOT on the Jupiter-2 During a
Hanna-Barbera's animated version of "Lost in Space"
(9/8/73), kicked off the second season of this series.
Craig Robinson (voiced by Mike Bell) and his crew embark
on a peace-saving mission, cruising the universe in
their space shuttle, the Jupiter-2. They help the
peaceful Throgs in their attempts to ward off the
Tyranos, a group of metallic creatures who have declared
war on their planet.
Jonathan Harris reprised his role as Dr. Smith, and
along with the Robot were the only characters from the
original series to be featured in this version. The
cartoon featured Shari Alberoni as Deanna Carmichael,
Vince Van Patten as Linc Robinson and Don Messick as the
Robot, the narrator and other incidental voices.
From the 1973 Hanna-Barbera cartoon special hosted by the ABC network. This is a fan re-producted VHS video. The stores never sold this video, seeing the cartoon was not that poplar, nor much of a request for it. You can find a copy for sale on eBay.
The Lost In Space Cartoon. Air date 09/08/73 Featuring the
voice of Jonathan Harris as Dr. Smith.
Although not strictly a LIS episode or following the true
LIS character and story lines, ABC aired this little gem
on the old Saturday Superstar Movie feature.
After the cartoon, the original copy of the sales pitch to
advertisers for the Lost in Space series is shown. This is
extremely rare. An original promo!
The Robinson family, carrying Craig Robinson as a scientist
and Dr. Smith as a vacationer to Saturn, take the Jupiter-2
into space, where it is hit by a swarm of meteorites, making
it lost in space.
Finding a planet, they land, to discover that it is populated
by two groups: the Throggs, good, frog like aliens, and the
Tyrranos, evil types at war.
The running time is 60 minutes. The quality is good. Very
campy! A must for true fans.
