Lost in Space - TV Series - season 3 - episode 82 first shown February 1968

No carrot related website can be complete, however, without a link to the 1960's television series episode of "Lost in Space" where Dr. Smith is attacked by a giant carrot.

This may very well be the silliest Lost in Space episode of all time - and once seen, "The Great Vegetable Rebellion" can never be forgotten.

The Jupiter 2 is travelling through space. On board, the Robinson party is celebrating the Robot's birthday. Dr. Smith decides to take the space pod down to a planet that they are passing to get him some flowers as a birthday gift. In so doing, Smith incurs the wrath of Tybo (Stanley Adams) a giant carrot who represents a race of highly intelligent (and very hostile) plants. As punishment for Smith's infraction, Tybo decides to transform the Robinsons into an assortment of plant life.

Professor Robinson and Major West thwart his plan by sabotaging the environmental system that keeps Tybo's greenhouse suitable for plants, and the Robinsons manage to escape from the planet in the Jupiter 2.

Millions of American children feared carrots after this episode was broadcast...and also ran around the house waving their arms shouting "Moisture! Moisture! I need moisture!" whenever they were thirsty!  - (from the episode The Great Vegetable Rebellion - On another planet) Dr. Smith plucks a flower, arousing accusations of murder from a giant, talking carrot, who plans to punish the Robinsons by turning them into plants.

Image shows the merchandise model, which has become quite sought after as it was a limited edition.
