Some shows never go out of style
This old show brought back memories of sitting in front of a huge television set with a small screen and wow we actually had a color TV. For the time period that this show was created it was great and have enjoyed sitting through the series with my kiddo... We need more family type shows on TV such as this instead of the reality shows.

Worth a look for nostalgia's sake. Especially considering the low price.
This is a great series that brought me back to the excitement of watching it religiously during my childhood.
This was a classic along with all of the other Sid & Marty Krofft television serials for kids shown during the Krofft Superstars Show on network television.
Lost Saucer, Far Out Space Nuts, The Bugaloos, Sigmund the Sea Monster, HR Pufinstuf, etc.
I actually bought (2) of these DVD sets and sent one to a friend. The quality is phenomenal and the price can't be beat.
I am trying to get my kids into "LOTL", but the technology back in the 70's doesn't quite cut the mustard compared to the CGI stuff done today.
So...all in all, it is campy and the special effects are a little silly, but it still gets the adrenaline pumping to hear the hiss of sleestak in the dark scary tunnels of the lost city.Read full review

Strongly recommend product for kids interested in dinosaurs.
great video series for kids. I would strongly recommend this product for kids interested in dinosaurs. My 6 year old was especially interested. Fun for adults to go back in time to see what happens with Marshall, Will and Holly also.

Wicked Cool, take me way back DVD set! Love it!
Wicked Cool set! I loved this series when I was a child now my 6 year old is enjoying it! A timeless family classic! Sounds and looks great. I love the sleeve packaging that holds all the seasons together. A totally awesome addition to our DVD collection. Would recommend to anyone who has fond memories of grumpy & the sleestaks!

Good kid fun - and a Boomer Memory Booster too !
Like many folks buying this DVD set, I was a child of the early 70's - and quite drawn into the Land Of The Lost series when it originally aired. As I write this I'm recalling having a LOTL lunchbox even. So anyway, this is a fun series with enough scary sillyness ( the Sleestax ) and goofy sillyness ( Dopey the baby dinosaur ) for our 7 & 5 year old daughters. The transfer to DVD highlights the limited quality to the original special effects - but then, no one's buying this for the razzle-dazzle computer effects, right? Some quality bonus material would've been a welcome addition - where's the interviews with the now middle-aged actors, or the half-crazy fan with the house full of original props and scripts ? So, don't pay too much for this set, and you won't feel too guilty for the purchase. A fun bit of nostalgia fluff, but perilously close to being just plain insipid.Read full review
