Card, Commemorative, TV Show, "Lost in Space"
- Inkworks, Morrisville, N.C.
- This collector's card features One-Eye the Cyclops from "Lost in Space," Irwin Allen's popular science fiction TV show presented on CBS from 1965 to 1968. It was a space-age adaptation of the 1812 novel "Swiss Family Robinson" (Der Schweizerische Robinson) by Swiss pastor Johann David Wyss. Wyss wrote the book to teach self-reliance, family values, and other virtues to his sons. "Lost in Space" transposed these themes into a space setting in which a modern Robinson family faced and survived a variety of ordeals while stranded in deep space by their own self-reliance and family cooperation. Although "Lost in Space" was cancelled after three seasons, like "Star Trek," it developed a loyal following of fans interested in merchandise and fan clubs.
- In 1998, New Line Cinema released an updated movie based on the same stories, also called "Lost in Space." To promote that movie, InkWorks released a new set of collector's cards featuring images from the late 1960s television program.
- This card was donated to the Smithsonian in 2005 by Gregory K. H. Bryant.
