Malachi Throne, a very busy guest star on the TV sci-fi/fantasy circuit, is here cast as Sheik Afi Ben Bad, self-proclaimed Thief of Outer Space. Capturing Will (Billy Mumy), Penny (Angela Cartwright) and Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris), the Sheik forces them to assist him in his quest to locate the princess that was "stolen" from him 200 years before. In a twinkling,.Will is made an apprentice thief, Penny becomes a pampered harem girl, and Smith is subjected to the "pit and the pendulum" treatment. Fans of the Three Stooges will appreciate the presence of the hefty Maxine Gates as the damsel who isn't in too much distress.
