Yes, you read that headline correctly.
The original four cast members of the 1970s TV show "Land of the Lost" will be reuniting. In Door County.
Spencer Milligan, who played dad "Rick Marshall" on the show, lives in Sturgeon Bay. And Kathy Coleman, whom viewers will remember as the pigtailed, plaid-shirted daughter "Holly Marshall," says she and the other two original cast members -- Wesley Eure ("Will Marshall") and Phillip Paley ("Cha-Ka") -- will be coming to Door County over the Fourth of July Weekend. They plan to meet with fans July 6 in Sturgeon Bay.
The get-together in Door County is no routine expedition. Coleman says it will be the first time the four have been together since they stopped filming the show in the 1970s.
Coleman says the question she probably gets the most from fans has to do with the humanoid/lizard creatures known as Sleestaks. Did they scare her as much as they freaked out viewers? Coleman says not so much. To her they were just really tall basketball players from USC.
Kathy Coleman, who played Holly Marshall on the 1970s TV show "Land of the Lost," poses with a fan -- and a "Sleestak" head. Coleman and the other three original cast members of the show will be reuniting in Door County.
Coleman says when she talks to fans of the show -- which originally aired on NBC from 1974-1976 -- she's taken back to a simpler, more innocent time.
Marshall says the meet-and-greet with fans will take place Saturday, July 6 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at John Martin's Restaurant, 50 South 3rd Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.
