The Penny Robinson Fan Club, now in our third year!

Penny says . . . 

It’s going to be my birthday soon, and then Christmas! Will pulled all the Christmas decorations down from the attic this morning. Don and Judy went to chop down a tree, Daddy and Mother are decorating the Jupiter 2, and Dr. Smith and I are getting all the Christmas lights untangled and tested. I think there’s a crossed wire or something in one string . . .

A Very Penny Christmas

Oh well, I’m sure if there’s a problem, Will can figure it out and fix it. Merry Christmas, everyone!

We have a new, experimental page set up under The Written Word. Down at the bottom of the list when you open the drawer, there is now a collection of our non-LIS “fanfics” (I really dislike that term!) An eclectic assortment of our other writings, there just might be something there that tickles your fancy! Please enjoy….

Our great project has completed its first phase — we’ve watched all the Lost In Space episodes, first to last, all 84! Look in the drawer Season Three Galleries, just above, for our Farewell Gallery of the last two Lost In Space episodes. To note this milestone, we present to you the very first look we had at Penny, from The Reluctant Stowaway:

First Penny

and the very last, from Junkyard In Space:

Last Penny

And what a trip it was in between! We’re not done, though. We’ll be going back around to the beginning, leaving thoughts on the episodes we watched before but hadn’t started the commentary section. The first new comments on The Reluctant Stowaway are up in a new drawer, “Thoughts On Season 1″ , under “The Written Word.” More photo galleries too! We missed most of the pre-Mr. Nobody episodes, so we’ll catch up on those. Also, we’re planning a gallery dedicated to poor neglected Judy! And finally, possibly our most intriguing feature to come, “Farnum B’s Beauty Contest”! Inspired by the episode Space Beauty, a gallery dedicated to all the lovely ladies who came visiting the Robinsons! Remember Verda? And the delightfully green Lorelei/Athena? How about Eefra, charming in black & white & Daisy Dukes? And the *ahem* intriguing Miss Fishtails? Yes, they’ll all be here soon!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t miss our popular science fiction trilogy, Through Endless Skies! Together, the three stories A Penny Saved, Symphony Of An Angel, and Through Endless Skies comprise one complete novel-length collection of Lost In Space adventure, romance, thrills, humor, and maybe a even a tear or two. We still have a limited number of professionally printed and bound copies of Endless Skies available, real old-fashioned softcover books! Completely portable and never need charging, works at the beach or in your bedroom. Yours for a donation to cover the cost of production and postage, $22 even. Paypal button is below, thanks. And in response to a number of inquiries, yes! More Endless Skies stories are in the works and coming sometime relatively soon!

NEW PHOTO FEATURES!!!

Look under “Gallery of Beautiful Models” for some of our latest work in beautifully built models — the Chariot, Pod, Robot, and more! And in the drawer labeled “Steampunk Jupiter 2″ is a customized build of the Polar Lights brand Jupiter 2 model kit, done in the steampunk style: if you’re not familiar with that, imagine the Jupiter 2 constructed based on the technology and science of the Victorian era! Lots of steam piping and gears and such are what usually mark out steampunk. This project is presented as if it were a scientific journal of the era, recounting the recent flight of the “Aether Ship” Jupiter 2 to Mars and back. Basically it’s a lot of photos and some backstory. Please enjoy!

We’ve also published the first volume of Lost In Space Adventures, five short stories which re-think and re-imagine a number of actual episodes which had some very good ideas in them, but, for whatever reason, didn’t make it to air time as everything they might have been. Essentially, they have been rewritten as serious science fiction for grown-ups. Well, mostly serious. Dr. Smith remains the thorough scoundrel he originally was, but he does lend some light touches still! Volume One is available under “The Written Word,” and has just been updated to contain all five Adventures. 

And of course thousands of screenshots from early Season One to the end of Season Three, all showing off the beautiful girl who is Penny. Lots of our own thoughts and comments on many episodes, too.

More new fans just landed!

Now here! A video gallery!!

We have to be very careful  posting video, as Lost In Space is still copyrighted material, but we have a growing gallery of short clips featuring some of Penny’s best scenes, and other related material. Check out our first clips now! Mark Goddard fans, be sure and visit the Golden Wheel Saloon, where we’re showing complete episodes of Johnny Ringo,  co-starring Mark in his first TV series as deputy “Cully” to Sheriff Johnny Ringo in old Arizona Territory. A classic Western from the Golden Age of the American Western!  And learn how you can get your very own Johnny Ringo DVD set. The first five episodes of Johnny Ringo are now playing in the Golden Wheel Saloon!

 But now . . .

PENNY NEEDS HELP

OK, more accurately, the Penny Robinson Fan Club would appreciate your help.

We’d appreciate it if you could chip in just a little to help defray our WordPress subscription cost. Paypal any amount you like to the Penny Robinson Fan Club on the Paypal button below; make it $22 and we’ll send you as a free premium a First Edition of our Endless Skies trilogy, almost certain to become a rare and priceless collector’s item in the future. (Sorry, US only. Will ship abroad, but must ask for a bit more to cover postage. Just ask, though!)

Please, dear friends . . . don’t let Penny down.

Help Penny!

 

A Trilogy of Tales

 

Well, in the picture, I guess she really does need to be let down.

But that’s not what I meant.

I mean, I’m sure you knew that, I know you’re pretty bright.

But just in case –

Yes, Penny dear, I’ll shut up now.

Welcome Spacers!

Welcome, fans of the classic TV show, Lost In Space, and especially all those who were, and are, fans of Penny Robinson.

After all this time, Penny remains a compelling, touching, and beautiful character.   She was portrayed by the incredibly talented Angela Cartwright, who at age 12, gave us more and better acting in any given ten minutes of Lost In Space than has been seen on TV in the last 20 years.

The purpose of this site is simply to showcase and celebrate Penny Robinson.  There are slideshows in the Gallery pages where stills of Penny appear, collected by episode. Some galleries will be devoted to a single episode. Others will collect a few episodes together which (sadly) had little Penny content.

To the left,  you will find links to a number of related (but independent) sites:  other fan sites, personal sites of the actors and actresses, including Angela Cartwright herself, of course.

 

Under “The Written Word” you will find a growing collection of commentary and analysis on different episodes, now covering most of the series. Much of the content summarizes remarks I have made over on a couple of the Yahoo! Lost In Space discussion groups:

LIS4Ever (http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/LIS4EVER/) and

Lost In Space (http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/LostinSpace/),

two wonderful online communities of fans of Lost In Space and other Irwin Allen shows.  Thanks to all my friends there for the stimulating and engaging dialogue!

Also:

Now appearing here, “LOLs in Space!”, a collection of humorously captioned (I hope!) stills from “Lost In Space.”  There are two separate galleries, “LOLs In Space” looks at the actors and actresses”behind the scenes,” as themselves; “Lost In Space Oddities” gives the characters themselves the works!

Now, go buy the DVDs, sit down by the Wayback Machine, and get yourselves . . .

LOST   IN   SPACE!!!!
