Lost in Space was one of the earliest TV SF shows to be
satired by MAD. The parody called "Loused up in Space"
was written by Dick De Bartolo and drawn by Mort Drucker.
This 1966 satire is based on a fictious episode called
"A Canyon of Precious Stones" or "The Ruby Valley Story."
The Robinsons become the Boobinsons, and the names of the
original cast are changed in true MAD style. Penny, for
example, becomes "Punny", Don becomes "Donce", and Maureen
becomes "Mauronne." This 6 page satire is one of a kind and
a must for all fans. If you can't find an original be sure
to look for copies or pick up the December 1996 issue #117 of MAD
Magazine where they reprint this classic.

cast from Lost in Space living up to their MAD reputation.
