Did you remember the TV show, “Land of the Lost?”
Land of the Lost (1974–1976)
Land of the Lost details the adventures of the Marshall family (father Rick, and his children Will and Holly) who are trapped in an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, a primate-type people called Pakuni, and devolved, aggressive humanoid/lizard creatures called Sleestak. The episode storylines focus on the family’s efforts to survive and find a way back to their own world, but the exploration of the exotic inhabitants of the Land of the Lost is also an ongoing part of the story.
The main cast of the show was:
- Rick Marshall (Seasons 1 and 2) – Spencer Milligan
- Uncle Jack Marshall (Season 3) – Ron Harper
- Will Marshall – Wesley Eure
- Holly Marshall – Kathy Coleman
- Cha-Ka – Phillip Paley
Oh, how I loved Wesley Eure!
And do you remember the Sleestak and Cha-ka?
I remember watching that show when I was a kid. I wanted to be in the land of the lost so bad. We had a cubby underneath the stairs in the basement and my brother, Joe and I would pretend that was our cave just like the one on the show.
Funny how things from when I grew up pop into my head. Must be when you get older, you remember the good times you had growing up.
