farewell, dr. smith
A sad note today: Actor Jonathan Harris, perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Zachary Smith in the 1965 TV series Lost in Space, died Nov. 4. He was 87.
Although best known for his role as Dr. Smith--a sinister Communist sabotuer trapped with the Robinson family when the Jupiter 2 went off course--Harris (no relation) also starred in such Saturday morning kiddie fare as My Favorite Martians and the live-action series Space Academy (boy, does that take me back!). He also lent his voice talents to several animated shows and movies, including Freakazoid and the Pixar features A Bug's Life and Toy Story 2. Photos of the late actor are here.
