Kill-o-Zap blaster pistol[edit]

THe Kill-o-Zap blaster pistol is not described as being covered in shiny spikes. That s hyperbole ("_if_ that involves ..."). I ve edited accordingly Jabberwoch (talk) 02:37, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Some changes on the page[edit]

I added a reference to Lintilla's Crisis Inducer; I was surprised that it wasn't already there. I also switched the order of the book reference and the radio series reference under the Nutrimatic Drinks Dispenser; it was confusing to read them in the wrong order.

Peril-sensitive sunglasses[edit]

Anybody have any info about Zaphod's "Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive Sunglasses"? ("designed to help you develop a relaxed attitude to danger. At the first hint of trouble they turn totally black thus preventing the wearer from seeing anything that might alarm them." according to one external source). I don't remember exactly where in the show they were introduced, if it was in the radio show or the tv show or both, and I have no idea whether they were mentioned in the books. I can find out, of course... Khim1 (talk) 04:26, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

The guide itself[edit]

How about the actual Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy? Wasn't that an electronic device itself? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:33, 11 March 2013 (UTC)


I have created the following convenience links to sections in this article:

Phargilor Kangaroo Relocation Drive[edit]

I woke up this morning thinking about the Phargilor Kangaroo Relocation Drive, and realised it wasn't on this page.

The "Phargilor" spelling is in the scripts, the "Penargilon" spelling was used on the BBC Sound Effects record.

As I recall it was co-created by John Lloyd along with the Hagunemnons.

"“He wrote the first four episodes, and then he got terribly stuck. He basically ran out of ideas, because he was under a lot of pressure. And he came along rather shyly and said ‘Johnny, can you bail me out here – they’re really shouting at me to get on with it’. So we did the last two episodes together, and it was really quick. Because we were very close and had a very similar sense of humour, it was much, much quicker to do it as a twosome.”" [1]  BRIANTIST  (talk) 05:08, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
