This may very well be the silliest Lost in Space episode of all--but once seen, "The Great Vegetable Rebellion" can never be forgotten. It all begins when Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) plucks a flower from the ground of the planet where the Jupiter 2 has temporarily landed. 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 fruits and vegetables. If the costumes in this episode seem outrageous to the viewer, they were even more so to the cast: Indeed, in several scenes it is obvious very difficult for the cast members (especially Mark Goddard) to keep a straight face!
