->''Breakfast. Lunch. I said '''lunch''', not '''launch'''!''

One of the zanier Saturday morning series from Creator/SidAndMartyKrofftProductions, ''Far Out Space Nuts'' aired on Creator/{{CBS}} in 1975. Bob Denver and Chuck [=McCann=] played Junior and Barney, two NASA janitors who were loading food onto a rocket when a [[CapsLockNumLockMissilesLock wrong button press]] launched them into space.

While trying to return to Earth, our accidental astronauts visited various strange planets. On one of those planets, they met a furry creature whom they named Honk (PattyMaloney).

The series wasn't remarkable, but it was entertaining.

!!''This series provides examples of:''
* AllPlanetsAreEarthLike
* CapsLockNumLockMissilesLock: The premise was based on this trope, when the Lunch Button was mixed up with the Launch Button.
* CelebrityStar: John Carradine was a guest star in one episode; in fact, Bob Denver was so humbled by Carradine's presence on the set, that a number of Carradine's scenes had to be reshot.
* {{Expy}}: WordOfGod has it that the characters of Junior and Barney were meant to be like Creator/LaurelAndHardy.
** Although, as noted in Actor Allusion on the Trivia tab, Junior was practically Gilligan as a NASA Commissary worker.
* FantasticComedy
* FatAndSkinny
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: The launch sequence was stock footage of a ''Saturn V'' launch, and the spacecraft resembled an Apollo lunar module. The real Apollo lunar module carried enough fuel to go between lunar orbit and the lunar surface, once. Yet, this spacecraft manages to visit a new planet each week, most of which aren't even planets in our own solar system. (This probably isn't a case of SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale, because the writers weren't Sci Fi writers.)

* ShortRunner: Another Krofft show lasting one season, with 16 episodes.

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Another Krofft staple.
