But Why Was Rick Marshall Di-Spenced in the Third Season?

Here is an archive of the old
Studio Dallas website, which worked with Spencer Milligan in the 1990's and 2000's. A number of photos of him can be found there. As far as I can tell the advertised spencermilligan.com site never got off the ground (or over the waterfall).

I'm a Fart Smeller--I Mean a Smart Feller

Victoria Fromkin, the UCLA linguist who created the Pakuni language for Land of the Lost, died in January of 2000. She was perhaps best known for her study of speech errors. Here is an excerpt from an obit article I recently found from the New York Times about her field of study:

"As Dr. Fromkin was gleefully aware, everyday speech contains many a slip 'twixt the brain and the lip. While earlier scholars had noted the theoretical usefulness of these errors, she was the first to gather them in quantity, colleagues said, building a collection of linguistic inadvertencies like spoonerisms (''speech production'' coming out as ''preach seduction''), semantic substitutions (''That's a horse of a different race'') and slips of the ear (''All of the members of the group grew up in Philadelphia'' heard as ''All of the members of the group threw up in Philadelphia'')." - Margalit Fox


Celebrity, Banality, and the Infamous Chaka

Those of you old enough to recall 1991 may be familiar with the graffiti tagger called Chaka, who spray painted his non-de-plume all over the west coast cities of California, allegedly over 10,000 times. The convicted tagger, teenager Daniel Ramos, revealed that he took the Chaka name from Land of the Lost! Check out M/C Journal for a well written 2004 article by Davin Heckman, "Celebrity, Banality, and the Infamous Chaka".

"I had seen Chaka’s tags just about everywhere, and had determined that he might be superhuman. His name, taken after a hairy little missing link from the popular fantasy show, The Land of the Lost, made me smirk as it conjured up images of a sub-humanoid with broken dialect creeping out from the darkness with cans of paint, marking the walls with his sign, calling out to the rest of us half-humans stranded in the land of the lost."--Davin Heckman


   
It's quite a good likeness of Diedre Hall and her Twins

Don't forget to look for the hard to find Electra Woman action figure from Living Toys....remember that "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl" were otherwise known as the "Turbo Twins" from Kevin Porter's favorite TV show on LOTL90.
