In the comic book series, the Robinsons were scientist father Craig, scientist mother June, early teens Tim (son) and Tam (daughter), along with pets Clancy (dog) and Yakker (parrot). They lived in 'Space Station One', a spacious moving craft with hydroponic gardens, observatory, and two small 'Spacemobile' shuttle craft. The family was selected by computer to be the most mentally and physically qualified to man the space station. They left Earth in the year 2001. In the second issue, a cosmic storm deposited them far from Earth and they have adventures while they try to work their way home.
A backup series, titled Captain Venture and the Land Beneath the Sea, ran through issues #6-36.
