Do you remember...
the Robot from Lost in Space?

Danger Will Robinson!

We've all heard that famous line from the Lost in Space TV show that ran from 1965-1968.

The first show aired September 15, 1965 with the plot set in the "future" of 1997. In that first episode, the Robinson Family takes off in 1997 on the Jupiter 2 spacecraft for a journey to Alpha Centauri.

But before liftoff, an enemy government spy Dr. Zachary Smith planned to destroy the spacecraft. His plan backfired and and he became trapped on board. He also accidentally destroyed the Jupiter 2's guidance system and they all become Lost in Space.

One of the crew was a robot, called Robot, who was almost a pet to the young Will Robinson played by actor Billy Mumy.
