Lost In Space Trivia

    

The Lost In Space TV show was originally titled, "Space Family Robinson". CBS was afraid that it was too close to Disney's Movie, "Swiss Family Robinson", so they changed it.

June Lockhart started her "on-screen" career with a bang! In 1938 she played the role of "Cratchit's Daughter" in the classic movie, "A Christmas Carol"!

The first name chosen for the spaceship was, "Gemini XII" (in the pilot only). It was changed to "Jupiter II" because it was felt that the audience might confuse it with NASA's "Gemini" program.

Before going "off-course", the Jupiter II was heading for "Alpha Centauri".

Caroll O'Connor (Archie Bunker on the series, "All in the Family") was considered for the role of Dr. Smith.

In order to keep their budgets as low as possible, it was common to share props from one program to another. Some of the props including the robot on Lost In Space were also used on "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964)", "Batman (1966)", "Time Tunnel (1966)", and "Land of the Giants (1968)".

Nasa and Houston did not control the flight of the Jupiter II spacecraft during the pilot and first episodes. That was done by "Alpha Control".

Marta Kristen (Judy Robinson) was not born in the United States. Her mother was from Finland and her father was a Nazi soldier from Germany. Her mother left her at an orphanage in Oslo, Norway when she was only two months old. Happily, she found a loving home when she was adopted by a couple from the United States.

Bill Mumy appeared on three of the original "Twilight Zone (1959)" TV show episodes and also appeared in the "Twilight Zone Movie". His first cast appearance on the series was in 1961 and his movie appearance was in 1983! During his long career, he has also appeared as a guest cast member on other sci-fi series such as: "Bewitched", "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine". His first credited appearance, however, was in a movie! In 1960, he played the role of "Aladdin" in the movie, "Wizard of Baghdad.
