TV show description:
In the futuristic year of 1997, the world is suffering from over-population and a lack of natural resources. A team is chosen to travel to Alpha Centauri in the Jupiter 2 spaceship to search for a new world to colonize.

The team consists of Professor John Robinson (Guy Williams), his biochemist wife Maureen (June Lockhart) and their friend and pilot, Major Don West (Mark Goddard). Traveling with them are the Robinson children; Don’s girlfriend Judy (Marta Kristen), middle child Penny (Angela Cartwright), and child prodigy Will (Bill Mumy).

After the Robinsons have been placed in suspended animation for the long journey, foreign agent Dr. Zachary Smith (Jonathan Harris) sneaks aboard to sabotage the mission. Instead, he becomes trapped on the ship during the launch and his extra weight throws the ship off course, causing the Jupiter 2 and its inhabitants to become lost in space.

Though the Robinsons eventually achieve an unlikely alliance with him, the cowardly and duplicitous Dr. Smith frequently tries to make deals with aliens to return him home, often at the expense of his fellow castaways.

The ship’s friendly robot (Bob May, voiced by Dick Tufeld) sometimes helps Dr. Smith but more often ruins his plans.

Canceled and renewed TV show
