This site has nothing to do with Land of the Lost except that it recommends that you might want to name your pet iguana "Sleestack" (sic)!

Here is an article from the Courier about Pufnstuf and Other Stuff: The Weird and Wonderful World of Sid and Marty Krofft.
LOTL DVD ASAP
Speaking of DVD releases of TV shows, I've seen that Best Buy has a three-pack of South Park DVDs containing 12 half-hour episodes for just $50! Imagine if we could get that kind of deal with Land of the Lost! Also available was a three pack of The Avengers--6 one hour episodes--for $40.
Skylons By Any Other Name Just Wouldn't Be The Same
Two volumes of Land of the Lost videos are still set for release on July 13, 1999. Alas, still no news on a DVD release.
Secondly, I only just noticed that Rhino Home Video's press release for the World of Sid and Marty Krofft Boxed Set contains an incorrect description of the Land of the Lost episode contained therein. Though they correctly give the title of Episode 5 as "The Empire Strikes Back"--oops, "Skylons", they give the description of the original script of that episode when it was titled "Sky Snakes"! Here's how it reads in the Rhino press release:
Land Of The Lost -- "Skylons" Episode 5. The action turns colorful and exciting as Marshall, Will, and Holly find the Land Of The Lost has gone insane with wild weather, a multi-colored Sky Snake, and a plague of biting white bugs.
Of course, we know that the episode as shot features no sky snakes (the skylons were instead invented for the story) and no white bugs.

Anthony Owsley put me in touch with Keith Knight who wrote an article for the San Francisco area 'zine Forbidden Grampers. I haven't gotten ahold of the actual article but I did exchange some e-mail with Keith about it. He interviewed San Francisco area cartoonist Nina Paley who said she had been contacted by Philip Paley (Cha-ka), who was a fan of hers and who was interested in finding out if the two of them were related. In time, they were able to trace their respective roots back to Minsk, Russia! Nina now refers to Philip as Cousin Monkey-Boy!
