Notes

Creators of the Land of the Lost


Altrusians are an ancient alien race who created the Land of the Lost. They later, "devolved" into creatures referred to by the name, Sleestak. Enik is a member of their earlier, more advanced form.

Culture and ScienceEdit

Altrusian technology was based on energy-holding trans-dimensional Crystals and they have been responsible for building of the Lost City, the Pylons, Skylons and possible the entirety of the Land of the Lost universe. They also possess a degree of telepathic ability.

PhysiologyEdit

On average, an Altrusian is similar to a Human. The main difference being that Altrusians appear to be a reptilian species. They have a thin but wide-set mouths and large, round black eyes that are averse to light. Covered mostly in green scales, their bellies are yellow. Sleestak also have claws on their feet and on their hands, with a horn protruding from the top of their heads.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Altrusians and Sleestak look virtually identical.
  • Though little is known of the history of the Altrusian race, it was revealed in the "Lost Island" segment of one edition of The Krofft Superstar Hour that at some point following Enik's departure from his original era, human beings all but committed genocide on his people. It was a good thing he learned this after his experiences with the Marshall family! It also goes some way towards explaining how the Altrusians degenerated into the Sleestak.
