Don’t Call Me “Square,” Hippie.

posted by on April 10 at 11:41 AM

You know, everytime I bash hippies on this blog, a bunch of long-haired soap-scared hippie freaks crawl out of the woodwork, and accuse ME of being close-minded. AND YET? I keep finding proof that I’m absolutely correct in my assumption that hippies are effing GROSS and STUPID. Today’s proof comes from a 1967 episode of LOST IN SPACE, in which the crew are obviously under the ill effects of a real marijuana freakout. Watch this clip and decide for yourself: IS WILL ROBINSON “A SQUARE”? (I think you know my answer.)

Thanks, Cracked.

That was so bad even for a 1967 TV audience that I threw up a little in my mouth.

Wow, so you admit you don't have a life, WSH ... that's the last time you watch cartoons with my son ...

Naw, it was wretched in '67, and it's still wretched now. I still find it incomprehensible that Irwin Allen was still able to maintain a career after creating drek like this

And yeah, the "Star Trek" Hippies In Space episode was just as bad.

In fact, pretty much any TV show from the 1960's that depicted "hippies" is pretty much guaranteed to suck.

And by "suck", I assume you mean "totally rule".

In this case "suck" does in fact mean, "suck".
