King of all the midget robots

“Lost in Space” is on the very fringe of my memories from childhood. It came out in ’65; too early for me to notice. I’m not sure when it was cancelled. Somehow I remember watching the show, so it had to last at least 4 or 5 years.

My brother lent me the first season on DVD. I haven’t watched it yet, but I will, at least part-wise.

I’m certain I’ll remember several of the episodes when I actually do watch the DVD. Right now, though, I can recall only two:

The first one was all about a good alien (who looked human, but talked like a robot) who was only half-strong, who was battling a bad alien (who also looked like a human, but talked like an evil robot) who was one hundred percent strong. I mean that the good alien had a superhuman side of his body, with a fist capable of crushing Dr Smith’s head—though he wouldn’t— and a mortal side. The evil robot could all the way crush Dr Smith, from every side, with no compunction—though he didn’t.

The second one was where Robot found himself King of the Midget Robots, which were evil. It was unclear at first whether Robot was still a friend of mankind or whether he’d succumbed to the filthy communists, I mean midget robots. But in the end, it became clear that Robot was in fact on humanity’s side, and not on the side of the filthy communists, I mean midget robots.
