1960’s Lost in Space started out as a smart Sci Fi series about a space age Family Robinson. It quickly devolved into a campy, kitschy show revolving around the very gay Dr. Smith and Robot. Still, it remains a childhood favorite for many.

The original “Girl Power” epitomized by smart Sabrina, beautiful Kelly, and sexy Kris as Charlie’s Angels, one of the most popular TV shows of the 70’s. By the time this lunch box arrived on shelves, superstar Farrah Fawcett had left for her film career, and replaced by Cheryl Ladd.
