He Makes A Good Point: Danger, Danger!

sales graph business cartoon

As a kid growing up I watched a lot of television. Cartoons, sitcoms, even the late night talk shows (don’t tell my mom!)

One of my absolute favorite shows was Lost In Space. Looking at it now, sure, it’s cheesy and all, but that robot is still pretty cool:

“Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!”

It makes me smile just writing that.  So as much as I’d like to say that this cartoon is funny or insightful or relevant, mostly it was an excuse to draw one of my favorite robots.

“Danger! Danger!”

Awesome.

  1. Thanks for this cartoon!

    As a kid, I couldn’t WAIT to come home from school, grab a snack, and wait for Lost in Space to come on.

    Now, if I try to watch it, I last about 10 minutes. Cheesy-for sure.

    And, Dr. Smith still makes me mad.

  2. Hi Mark, this strikes such a chord with me. In my last corporate position, I can remember one of the other members of the Executive Team frequently using that phrase “Danger! Danger Will Robinson!” If we were discussing one of our important partner relationships, for instance, he would use that phrase to highlight how the partner might react to something controversial we were about to it. It was a moment of levity, too, in a boring meeting because he’d wave his arms up in the air just like the robot. I haven’t thought of him in years, but when I saw this cartoon I couldn’t help but remember….

    Thanks for making my day!

  3. Even though I didn’t see the show until I was about 20, I’ve always loved the catch phrase. Thanks for the laugh.

  4. Gotta love the old classics. I was super excited in the 90’s when they remade it into a movie. Then I saw the movie. Robot was the only good part. The updated version was awesome but the retro homage was fantastic. The voice alone still just takes you back doesn’t it?
