Dr. Shrinker | Sid & Marty Krofft


Three teenagers crash-land their small plane on Dr. Shrinker’s uncharted island.

The diabolical scientist has created a “shrinking ray” that he uses to shrink the teenagers. Now with proof that the machine works on humans he can sell it…and them to the highest bidder – unless the shrunken teenagers can stop him.

Dr. Shrinker was played by Jay Robinson who is probably best remembered for his outstanding performance as the despicable Caligula in The Robe.

His assistant Hugo was played by the great little person Billy Barty.
