Hiding behind a slatted door, young Will Robinson fiddles with a holographic zapper aimed at his school principal. As she harangues the boy's mother about his obstreperous behavior, Will morphs the matronly principal into a gun-toting Rambo in sensible shoes. Maureen Robinson bursts out laughing.

Richard Covington's article on the forthcoming "Lost in Space" movie ("Danger! Danger!," July 28) notes that among the merchandising spinoffs will be "Robbie the Robot toys."
