I just got back from The Land of Whatever; I didn't realize that The Lost Saucer was Jim Nabors' last regular TV series. A true talent, he will be missed.
Indeed. It had been about 4 years since Nabors' variety show on CBS had ended, and, aside from guest appearances elsewhere, he hadn't landed another series in between that and Lost Saucer. I suspect typecasting may have been involved. Lost Saucer gave him something fresh to do, a new character, but parents still had Gomer reruns in syndication, and that may have had an adverse effect on Saucer.
