ORIGINAL BARTHALMULE'S PROMISE PLANET COSTUME
This is the original tights used by one of the aliens from the 3rd
season on Lost in Space. the episode was "The Promised Planet" and
aired on CBS on 1/24/68. It is unknown what actor may have worn this
of the 3 aliens. It could be actor Gil Rogers who protrayed
"Barthalamule"? When I first saw this costume I thought it looked
like a clown costume, and may have been used on other TV series
besides Lost in Space.
The costume was purchased by Western Costumes in the early 1980's
from 20th Century Fox. Western Costumes purchased many TV series
wardrobes in the late 1970's and mid 1980's. They often rented these
costumes to the general public for several years. The costume was then
purchase from Western Costume's inventory in 1993 from a prop collector.
The costume has the original FOX wardrobe tag attached to the pants. I
purchased this item on 11/29/00 from prop dealer, Fuller French of
I received this e-mail on February 24, 2004 11:05 AM
These pants are indeed "Barthalamule's". I own the other
(2) complete alien costumes from this episode, "Promise Planet".
Many thanks to "Michael Mitlitsky" for updating me on this prop, for
it's been years trying to find any info on this costume!
