Special effects in "Lost in Space" make movie
Usually in a movie when a scene or effect isn't needed, the production company receives a lot of criticism, however, when the Jim Henson Creature Shop is concerned the "extra effect" makes the movie.
". . . Jim Henson's Creature shop was responsible for a lot of the monsters and marvels in the movie as well, and the company's reputation will continue to precede itself. These are the guys who brought us everything from The Muppets to "The Dark Crystal," and they're having no problems keeping up with the times or the latest technology."
"A gratuitous little monkey-creature called Blawp is proof of their ability to bring the strange and wonderful to life. True, it serves little purpose in the film, but that's besides the point."
