Lost in Space (Original TV Series)

I was lucky enough to meet Jonathan Harris at a NYC Comic Con. He had a table next to Mark Goddard and Marta Kristen. It was a Sunday, so it was a slow time. I was lucky enough to be able to talk to him for a while, uninterrupted. He was a truly engaging and interesting man. He told me several stories about his lesser known co-stars, like the carrot guy. Meanwhile Mark Goddard kept yelling at him to not give out signatures for free.

I don’t know what was up with Goddard. I guess he disliked the fact that Harris had some attention? Anyway, Harris did indeed sign a few things that I had, for free. After I paid for a signature. And I also paid for Kristen And Goddard’s sigs as well.

Yeah, he still had the accent. He also commented on a ring that I was wearing. I gave it to him. It was a sterling silver lady… well. He liked it.

As I walked away I turned and asked him to insult me. He called me a bubble headed booby. I’ll never forget that. I was called a bubble headed booby by Dr. Smith!

That’s a heart-warming story, Rich. Love it!
