Land of the Lost is a half-hour Saturday-morning children’s series that debuted on ABC in the fall of 1991. Re-runs were later picked up by Nickelodeon. Tiger Toys received the license to produce a toyline based on the series, which included regular and “talking” action figures, several dinosaurs and playsets, an electronic Crystal Sword, as well as an electronic LCD game and a board game.
The Porter family, Tom, Kevin, and Annie get sucked into a prehistoric alternative world while taking a family vacation. The Porters build a tree house, hook up with a few locals, Tasha – orphaned, an extra smart dinosaur, Stink – a monkey man, and Christa – another human who has lived in the Land of the Lost since she was a little girl. The Porters must deal with living with dinosaurs and avoiding the evil advanced Sleestaks.
