Not only does he accept their situation but he actually grows to like it. Unfortunately, his carefree attitude breeds indifference to the dangers around him and he often finds himself in more peril than he expected. He likes to think of himself as an adult and will often disobey his father if he thinks Tom is being unfair.
Of all the Porters, Kevin is the one most reliant on the comforts and conveniences of the modern world. In addition to the usual camping gear, Kevin also smuggled in a portable six-inch TV, a camcordera boom-boxand a bag of various junk foods which he keeps hidden from the others. His goal is to one day become a world-famous director, and he carries the camcorder with him at all times to capture the sights and wonders of the Land of the Lost.
He expects this footage to propel him to stardom once they return to their own world. He is also a capable, self-taught mechanic, and one of his primary responsibilities is taking care of the family truck to ensure that it is running smoothly when they need it.
Kevin often prefers to explore alone and dislikes having to " babysit " his sister. He thinks of her as being a complete "nerd" and often trades insults with her. However, deep down he's very much a caring brother and will not hesitate to act if she's in danger.
Kevin has a crush on Christa and often goes out of his way to impress her. She is very bright and intuitive for her age and resents her family especially Kevin whom she considers a "dork" for treating her like a baby.
She has had to grow up rather quickly in a hostile environment and has shown that she is more than capable of taking care of herself on many occasions. Annie is a vegetarianand one of her responsibilities is maintaining her garden at the base of the treehouse.
The sorceress Keela takes her on as an apprentice and entrusts her with her spellbook when she has to leave for extended periods. Annie is extremely protective of the dinosaur Tasha and treats her not as a pet but as a member of the family. She is also a bit of an artist, as shown in the episode, "The Thief", when she draws a picture of Christa to give her as a present for the birthday party they throw her. In, "Annie in Charge", her full name is revealed to be, "Anamarie".
Her family was trapped in the Land of the Lost through similar circumstances to the Porters. At one point, Christa's family built a raft to try to sail to the other side of the ocean, hoping to find signs of civilization. In a subsequent storm, Christa was washed overboard but found refuge on a floating tree trunk where after several days of drifting she found her way to a far away beach.
Separated from her parents, Christa grew up practically alone, and by the time the Porters met her, had repressed almost everything about her previous life. She is fiercely independent and feels safe and at home in the jungle.
However, she's not oblivious to its many dangers and uses her knowledge of its topography, inhabitants, and various medicinal plants to aid the Porters whenever she can. She is fluent in Pakuni often greeting her human friends with "Acuba Ne" to express both "hello" and "goodbye". She is like an older sister to Annie and the object of Kevin's infatuation.Land of the Lost 1991 "Heat Wave"
Flashbacks of Christa as a child were seen in "Life's a Beach". Young Christa was played by Farrah Emami. She also has a yell similar to Tarzan's that can calm certain animals which she presumably learned from Stink. Christa was originally intended to be Holly from the original Land of the Lostbut casting made this impossible.
Though some fans identify Christa with Holly, this is inconsistent with Christa's background the Marshalls never mentioned owning a dogage Christa was much younger than 12 when she was separated from her parentsand appearance Holly was a natural blonde with straight hair. After "borrowing" his master's armor and sword while he's asleep, Marty Balen sets out into the moors and is enshrouded in a "blue bubbling fog" and winds up in the Land of the Lost just in time to save Christa from the Sleestaks.
After Shung hears of this, he sends the Sleestaks after "Ironface"'s "magic blade" his sword. Balen's desire to protect "M'lady Christa" causes friction with a jealous Kevin as he sets out to escort her home not aware that she can take care of herself.
Kevin is guilted into going after him when they again encounter Scarface "The king of all dragons". After eluding him, the ground shakes and another doorway appears. Balen offers Kevin his morning star in recognition of his bravery and disappears through the gate. Keela played by Adilah Barnes a sorceress from another time who was banished to the Land for not using her magic to aid Magas. She arrived through a green dimensional gate located in a desert on the other side of the Land of the Lost.

She is gifted in the ways of magic and sorcery but is not powerful enough to send the Porters or herself home. The Porters helped her defeat her enemy, Magas, whom Keela had turned into a one-eyed beast. Keela trusts the Porters entirely, even accepting Annie as an informal apprentice and asking her to guard her spellbook while away.
She is a very compassionate person, but admits that even she has times when she abuses her powers i. Magas portrayed by Ed Gale a short, cruel sorcerer and the brother of the late queen whom Keela served. She recognized him as a heartless person and turned him into a Cyclopean dinosaur-like beast, similar to a giant from Jack the Giant Killer and the Cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbadthus sealing his magical powers.
Over time, he slowly regained his power and hunted Keela down to the Porters' treehouse. He was defeated by Keela with Tasha's help but not before Keela restored him to his true form.
Siren played by Marta DuBois she was once a beautiful woman, but her beauty became more important than her family. So she was sentenced to the Land with no hope of ever seeing the ones she loved in the afterlife, and she used her music to bring the Porters to her, and disguised herself as Tom's wife, Natasha.
After talking to Tom about her past, she was finally able to ascend to the heavens. He wears an "inter-trans" suit that apparently works in conjunction with the belt, possibly protecting the wearer from the forces involved in such travel. He frequently speaks using a form of "futuristic slang " that involves a shortening of modern adjectives for example, "pendous" for "stupendous" or "morb" for "morbid".
He returns home once the belt's auto-recall device is activated.
Cy, also known as the Myzarian Cyborg, it is a gigantic rancor -like cyborg from the planet Myzar-3 who became trapped in the Land of the Lost after colliding with another time traveler in the dimensional corridor, damaging his time device. He is exceptionally intelligent, and his strength alone makes him more than an even match for the dinosaur Scarface.
Some of his cybernetic enhancements include the ability to see in the infrared spectrum in one eye as well as heightened senses. He lives in a cave in the mountains that he has made into a base of operations and attacks anyone who comes near.
The entrance to his lair is booby-trapped with auto-defense mechanisms which include a form of nerve gas that causes temporary memory loss in humans and renders them unconscious.
He wears a device on his wrist which can perform a similar function. Because he comes from a world rich in hydrogen and oxygen, he becomes winded easily in the Land due to the thinner air. In addition, this particular model was recalled due to being particularly susceptible to ultraviolet light. Native inhabitants[ edit ] Like its s counterpart, the inhabitants of the Land of the Lost are mostly dinosaurs.
An iguana can be seen occasionally. A creature, called an "osongi", which resembles an iguana, once bit Tom. A spitting viper called the "shika" is seen in the Valley of Death, and it blinds Kevin temporarily. Termites have also been found. A Triceratops named Princess is sometimes used as transportation for Christa and Stink. Christa perhaps unconsciously named her after a dog her family once owned.
Princess is distinct from the other Triceratops in that her right horn is broken in half. A Stegosaurus named Spike fought with Scarface. Both Subway and MapQuest hosted an online sweepstakes on their respective Web sites with various movie-related merchandise given away as prizes.
Both sweepstakes ran from May 18 through June 7 of Ferrell also appeared on the season 4 premiere of Man vs. Wildwhich aired June 2,to promote the film. Music[ edit ] The score to Land of the Lost was composed by Michael Giacchinowho recorded his score with an piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony and a person choir. However parts of the song " The Right to Go Insane ", from the album Endgamecan be heard near the end of the film.
The original creators of these time portals were thought to be the ancestors of the Sleestak, called Altrusiansthough later episodes raised some questions about this. Many aspects of the Land of the Lost, including the time doorways and environmental processes, were controlled by the Pylons, metallic obelisk-shaped booths that were larger on the inside than the outside and housed matrix tables - stone tables studded with a grid of colored crystals. Uncontrolled time doorways result in the arrival of a variety of visitors and castaways in the Land.
Production[ edit ] Land of the Lost is notable for its epic-scale concept, which suggested an expansive world with many fantastic forms of life and mysterious technology, all created on a children's series' limited production budget.
To support the internal mythology, linguist Victoria Fromkin was commissioned to create a special language for the Pakuni, which she based on the sounds of West African speech and attempted to build into the show in a gradual way that would allow viewers to learn the language over the course of many episodes. In a interview, first-season story editor and writer David Gerrold claimed that he largely created the show, based on photographs of various science fiction topoi that were bound together in a book and given him by Sid Krofft and Allan Foshko.
As is traditional in many effect scenes, miniatures or scale-version settings were used for insertion of live-action scenes. Additional locations were often rendered using scale miniatures and chroma key.

Spencer Milligan departed the show at the beginning of its third season for financial reasons. In addition to a salary increase, he believed it was only fair that he and the rest of the cast receive compensation for using their image on various merchandise. Milligan did not return for the brief scene, also shown in the credits of the third season, showing Rick Marshall being transported out of the Land of the Lost.
One of the show's crew played the role instead, wearing a wig resembling Milligan's hair and standing with his back to the camera.
