Penny and Dr. Smith enter the twilight world of the looking glass when they fall into a full-length alien mirror.

When Penny is leading Debbie the Bloop to the mirror (right after Dr. Smith says "take that improbable bell ringer with you), a person is seen to the right of the mirror motioning, presumably to Debbie. They quickly duck out of view after a few seconds. See more »


Judy Robinson: A full-length mirror, just what we needed. Which reminds me, you promised to help me fix my hair.
Penny Robinson: Oh, no. Not again.
Judy Robinson: Thought I'd try it a little bit higher on top with perhaps a softer curl.
Penny Robinson: You and your hairdos. I'm gonna cut all my hair off, just like Will's.
Judy Robinson: Go ahead. Be ugly. Who cares?

Magic Mirror It is
1 November 2017 | by dlfestSee all my reviews

At the end of the episode, a young lad jumps off the rock that Dr Smith is aiming his ray gun at. The young lad with a spear jumps down off rock looks like Kurt Russell to me, but not credited in that episode? its not M J Pollard. Mr Pollard looked completely different to the lad I have mentioned at end of episode. I know Kurt appeared in the series, but seems like he appeared in this one out of sync with the other episodes... Or am I daft?....
