The Robinson family plays a pivotal role in the popular soap and Dennis is the only current cast member to appear in the first episode and remain on the show (although he did take a 13-year break in the 1990s).
June Lockhart played many famous mothers throughout her career including the first Ruth Martin (the mother of little Timmy) on Lassie as well as Dr. Maureen Robinson on the 60s cult hit Lost in Space.
Guy Williams, who starred as Dr. John Robinson, 'astrophysicist', was something of a heart-throb, having appeared in two movies and a TV series as Zorro, swashbuckling masked Robin-Hood-of-the-West.
Lost is Space was clearly meant to capitalize on that popularity, by setting a resourceful family (also named Robinson) adrift in space in order to make a home as best they could.
To set the series in its time, it's important to note that in 1960, Disney had a huge hit with its movie Swiss Family Robinson, based on the 1812 Wyss novel of the same name.
The Black Crowes have Chris and Rich Robinson, Oasis has Noel and Liam Gallagher, Van Halen has Eddie and Alex Van Halen, The Kinks have Ray and Dave Davies, and so on.
Number 22: Paul Robinson (played by Stefan Dennis) resides at number 22 with his daughter Lucinda "Elle" Robinson (Pippa Black) and Donna Freedman (Margot Robbie).
Survivor is based on a 1997 Swedish television series called Expedition Robinson, and since has become one of the most successful global reality TV franchises.
That film featured a shipwrecked family (from Switzerland, yet named Robinson), resourcefully surviving on a deserted island and making a home for themselves.
Mr. Robinson went on to let Lindsay know that if she did not show up on time, every time, he would hold her personally and financially responsible.
