a childhood favorite
15 June 2007 | by peribellSee all my reviews

The Lost Saucer was one of my favorite Saturday morning TV shows as a child. I loved it! The Lost Saucer was a live-action series with all the energy and fun of a cartoon. It was wonderfully zany and anything could happen as they traveled through both space and time. It was wild! Where else on Saturday mornings could you encounter a "Chickephant"? LOL! The cast and characters were also terrific. Jim Nabors and Ruth Buzzy were a perfect zany comedic duo for a kid's show. Alice Playten and Jarrod Johnson were both wonderful. The show's heart was in the right place too. It wasn't cynical or mean. The Lost Saucer was always fun and positive. I enjoyed it immensely. I have a lot of happy childhood memories of this show. I wish they'd release it on DVD.
