Welcome Stranger

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Jimmy Hapgood is a happy-go-lucky space traveler who has been planet-hoping for 15 years after becoming lost on a mission to Saturn. When he drops in on the Robinsons, they try to help him repair his ship’s guidance system in return for passage for their children back to Earth. Hapgood is not too keen on the idea until Penny’s bout with a wild space fungus growing from his spacecraft causes a change of heart. His sentiments are short-lived, however, when Dr. Zachary Smith presents another selfish scheme.
