Land of the Lost - Chaka!



Land of the Lost - 1970s TV show
Sid and Morty Krofft's Land of the Lost first aired on NBC between 1974 to 1976. I was too young for the original broadcast, but remember watching the show after school at Grandma's in the early 1980s. The show focused around Rick Marshall and his two children, Holly and Will and their strange encounters into the bizarre prehistoric world they fell into. 

I wasn't a big fan of Land of the Lost, the corny special effects and the family's adventures outsmarting dinosaurs and cavemen. One particular caveman they befriend is young Cha-ka or Chaka. This freaky looking beast scared the heck out of me. Check him out.

Chaka freaked me out back in the days.

This show FREAKED ME OUT when I was a kid. I couldn't watch it, and the sleestaks make me afraid of buggy eyed alien things for years...

I used to love this show when I was young enough not to know any better!

Thank you for reminding me that I'm getting old! I remember that show...I also remember not caring for it much!

I loved the song (for some odd reason) and the horrible clip that opened the show. Yeah, used to watch it all the time.

Happy Chocolate Day, Ally. =)

Lost in Idaho - this show totally freaked me out. To this day, Chaka bugs me out. Working, my entire blog will remind us that we are old :(

I remember the intro well. Me and my brother would sing it together. I mostly remember it being kindof cheesy.
