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, mostly Season 2 at this time, as well as a look at the entire series itself. Also, some original short fiction speculating on Penny’s life and adventures beyond Season 3, in what is probably a slightly alternate timeline, but crammed full of good sci-fi action, all the Jupiter 2 crew you love. . .and new characters, too! Enjoy!
Much of the content summarizes comments 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!
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 . . .
