    The first season planet was named Preplanis. I believe Preplanis once had a regular orbit, but once its orbit became erratic (which is a subplot of many of the episodes), its peoples either retreated underground and eventually died off, or they headed to Earth and landed in Egypt.


    The abandoned underground civilizations were featured in:


    There Were Giants in the Earth


    My Friend, Mr. Nobody


    The Magic Mirror


    The Lost Civilization

    Why were so many creatures and plants on Preplanis oversized? Over the course of the year, you had:


    There Were Giants in the Earth--the Cyclops, the tortoise and the vegetables


    Attack of the Monster Plants--large plants, cyclamen and an egg. Also, in The Space Croppers, Sybilla and her family grow and harvest the cyclamen.


    Ghost in Space--an oversized three-toed creature


    The Oasis--Dr. Smith and Debbie eat a piece of native fruit, and grow into giants. Perhaps the other animals on the planet also ate that fruit and grew huge.
