At long last, here we are! A single photo-gallery from the groundbreaking “first five” episodes, which were drawn from the original, unaired pilot. For those who don’t know the story, the pilot was an hour-and-a-half movie, and did not include either Dr. Smith or the Robot. Smith, Robot, and other material were written and added in to make these episodes. As far as I can tell, there is nothing of the pilot which was cut to make these five episodes.

If anyone ever tries to stump you with a trivia question, here is the date the Jupiter 2 launched from Alpha Control!

First Five 01

We’ll lead off with our now traditional “Three Beauties” shot:3Bs

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for — Penny!

  1. Penny, you are so pretty!! Small wonder that I developed a mad crush on you when I first saw the show in reruns in the 70’s. I hope I can meet the real Angela Cartwright someday. From your loyal fan and Penny Robinson worshiper–also much love and a big hug from David Alan Kirschbaum!!!

  2. I am re-watching Lost In Space for the first time since my childhood days. I was recently reminded how different the first season was, so I thought I’d watch it again.

    I was about Penny’s age when I first saw Lost In Space (ok, I was about Will’s age, but he was the science whiz kid and a boy). I had forgotten that Penny likes classical music (only classical and jazz were played in my home as a child) and Shakespeare (I fell in love with Romeo and Juliet at age 8, just before I started watching Lost In Space) — no WONDER I had such a crush on Penny!

    Thanks for all the memories!

    The pilot was 52 minutes in length, or one hour with commercials.

    I also had a crush on Penny, aka Angela Cartwright, something undoubtedly shared with several million other boys.

    Hi, Penny is the reason I love lost in space. Ive always had a crush on her and at almost 59 years of age still do. It would be a dream to meet Angela.
