  • dr. smith doing the frug in a wig and beads.

    the crew of the j2 land on the planet delta which is run by teenagers. this psuedo psychedelic episode is a camp classic, complete with that fake 60's dance music. don't they ever change the record ? at one point the music comes over the loadspeakers of the j2 and the adults, especially maureen covers their ears in horror, she proclaimes " oh what's that horrible sound". they separated the adults from will and penny and penny starts to get into that groovy beat. will on the other hand doesn't dig it. meanwhile dr. smith turns into a hippy. the best part comes when dr. smith enters one of the space hippy's "pad" and starts to dance (badly) to that catchy same beat. the ending really doesn't matter because it all makes no sense.
