|Portrayed By|| Angela Cartwright|
Penny is the youngest of the two Robinson daughters. She is known for her wild imagination which often makes it difficult for her parents to distinguish between fact and fiction in her stories. Penny also has a fondness for cute space creatures. She is close to her family, although some have mistakenly thought she is from royal lineage. Like her brother Will, Penny seems to have adjusted well to the difficulties of being lost. In the 1998 movie, she is more disrespectful than thhe original, complaining about being lost.

In the 2004 unreleased pilot, "The Robinsons - Lost In Space," Penny is only a young infant girl. Penny is the youngest and fourth child of John and Maureen Robinson's children. Penny has a teenage brother David, a teenage sister Judy, and a ten-year-old brother Will who happens to be a genious. Why take an infant baby into space? The voyage to the planet Nova, which the Robinson family were moving to was meant to be a safe and peacful one. The reptilian like aliens that Military Leader John Robinson had driven away had not been seen or heard from in over fifteen years. Space was assumed to be relatively safe, so John Robinson had no qualms about taking his infant daughter into space. Penny is first seen when the Robinson family are at home on Earth, packing in order to travel to the planet Nova. Baby Penny is later seen aboard the Jupiter II Pod, in her father's arms. After the Jupiter Space Station is invaded by the reptilian aliens, Maureen is alone in the Jupiter II Pod, except for Penny, who she holds in her arms. An alien manages to open the door to the Jupiter II Pod and fires a laser at Maureen and Penny. Maureen narrowly sidesteps the laser, then hits a button which causes the door to slam shut, killing the alien. The last we see of Penny, is after the Jupiter II Pod detaches from the Jupiter Space Station. The Robinson's have managed to outrun the aliens, however, now their ship is heavily damaged...and the Robinsons have no idea of where they are. The scene ends with John hugging both Will and Judy...while Maureen holds Penny in her arms.
