sambluesnark: Lost In Space was a comic book Years before it's TV debut.
They kept Most of the concept in the translation.


No it wasn't, and no they didn't.

A couple of years before Allen worked up his concept for Lost In Space, provisionally titled The Space Family Robinson, there was an unrelated comic book also called Space Family Robinson. There were obvious parallels because both were directly derived from Swiss Family Robinson, but one was not based on the other. In a vain attempt to avoid conflict, the TV show adopted the Lost In Space name, but got sued anyway. The confusing settlement that came out of all this included that the publisher of the comic agreed to let Allen use the name Robinson for his characters, and Allen allowed the publisher to change the name of the comic to Lost in Space to capitalize on the show, although the stories were completely unconnected.

Hollie Maea: Tillmaster: You mean that there are people who don't know about Charles Addams' cartoons?
Must be targeted at the younger readers.

Or Thomas Nast, for christ's sake.


Well, just a guess, but the approximately 6,700,000,000 people in the world who aren't American?
Or young Americans who just haven't come across this information before?

red5ish: how did this get green lit?


Drew employees individuals with the job title of "moderator". They are also called modmins, admins, mod's and at times other colorful names.

They utilize a technology known as connectivity to access privilaged portions of the website fark.com and make administrative decisions based on guidelines imposed on fark.com employees. These "moderators" have the ability to review "link submissions". Upon the determination that a submitted link should be available for the general public to see they apply a predetermined set of business logic to the particular submission. Once the particular submission has this set of "rules" imposed on it, it is now viewable by the general public.

To boil it down to the utmost basics, a modmin approved it.

Hope this helps answer your question.

Don't bother with the pointless two-page article. You can get all the content you need from their friggin' tags.

Aliens vs. Predator
The Addams Family
Democrats and Republicans as donkeys & elephants, respectively
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Tales From the Crypt
Weird Science

Y'know, I get tired of Cracked's "I've got a cool list - sure, it has only five items on it, but we can squeak two pageviews out of it if we split it up & add filler" schtick, but to see other folks do it and do an even worse job at it, well...

Yeah, this. And Aliens Vs. Predator? There are people who didn't know that was a comic first?

Still think they should have used the comic plot for AvP. Same is true for the 3rd Alien movie. "Wilks and Billie"? F*ck you.
