Space Family Robinson was an original science-fiction comic book series published by Gold Key Comics (1962-1984). It predates the Lost in Space television series.

Both are loosely based on the 1812 novel The Swiss Family Robinson about a family shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia. This work itself is considered to be an extension of the original classic of survivalist fiction Robinson Crusoe  authored by English writer Daniel Defoe (1660 -1731).

Robinson Crusoe (1719) holds the distinction of being second only to the Bible for the number of translations.
