Banished from the Robinsons' settlement, Dr. Smith (Jonathan Harris) tries to cook up a scheme to get back in the family's good graces. With the help of sympathetic Will Robinson (Bill Mumy), Smith comes across an alien machine capable of granting wishes--one per day per customer. Unfortunately, the machine does more harm than good as it feeds upon everyone's baser and greedier instincts. The ubiquitous "creature actor" Dawson Palmer shows up in the deux-ex-machina finale as the machine's true owner.
