Suddenly flames shot out from the engine! Moments later Lt. Robin Crusoe was forced to eject – up for breathless seconds, then a frightening plummet of 20,000 feet to an unknown spot in the Pacific.
Was this to be the beginning of a desperate struggle for survival? A soul-stirring tale of heroism? NO!
Instead – frustrated and at the brink of giving himself up to the elements, Robin lands smack dab on the shore of a seemingly deserted island. His isolation dissolves when he discovers Floyd, the astrochimp. The two of them strike out against nature. Side-splitting adventures explode as they encounter a beautiful native girl and her fierce, head-hunter father!
Join Lt. Robin Crusoe, a modern-day castaway, on his comic romp through an island paradise – a sparkling story brought to the screen by Walt Disney Productions and starring Dick Van Dyke.
