Lost in Space Animated

Scott O'Brien apparently put this together, using audio from the original series, for a pitch to Fox in 2003. That an animated series--and one with this opening sequence--never happened makes me sad. This is nearly three and a half minutes of wonderful. It's rough animation at first, but stick with it. That theme sequence put a big, goofy smile on my face. It made me feel like a kid again, and damn it, that's what Saturday mornings are for.

There was an animated TV movie back in 1973

Wow, how strange! I'd never heard of this. I can see why it didn't sell, but I was thrilled to hear Jonathan Harris in it. Doesn't sound right without Dick Tufeld as the robot, though.

I kind of wonder what Filmation would've done with this.
