Full Name: Apollo
Species: Being
Gender: male
Born: ancient history
Family
Children: Athena Palamas
Other relatives: Mark McHenry (grandson)

Apollo was one of the omnipotent Beings who visited Earth thousands of years ago and were worshipped as the Greek gods. When humans faith in the Beings began to wane, the Beings departed. After centuries, only Apollo remained in the physical realm, waiting alone for humans to find him. (NF novels: Gods Above, Stone and Anvil)

In 2267, the USS Enterprise was drawn to Pollux IV by Apollo. Apollo wanted to make the crew of the Enterprise worship him, but he was defeated by Captain James T. Kirk. Realizing that the time of gods was over, Apollo spread himself upon the wind, imploring his fellow gods to take him, and vanished. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

Before Apollo's departure, he had impregnated Lieutenant Carolyn Palamas, with whom he had fallen in love. Their daughter was Athena Palamas, but young Athena never got to know her parents as she was sent to Earth. (NF novel: Being Human)

The Pajanimals

Pajanimals is an original short-form musical series produced by the Jim Henson Company and 4KIDS Entertainment. The series was created for PBS KIDS Sprout's evening block, The Good Night Show. Pajanimals features the musical adventures of four young animals preparing for bed. Pajanimals premiered on November 2, 2008. The song "La La Lullaby" is aired nightly as part of The Good Night Show, while the other segments are aired on a rotating basis.

The 3-minute episodes are designed to help comfort preschool viewers with bedtime themes and transitional issues such as separating from mom at the end of the day, healthy routines, sleeping through the night and being comfortable with the lights out. Five 10-minute Video-On-Demand companion segments were produced for caregivers, featuring interviews with experts who address common sleep issues for preschoolers.

The characters were designed by Jeff Muncy and built by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. Brian Henson, Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford serve as executive producers for the series, along with producers Jeff Muncy and Alex Rockwell.

The DVD Pajanimals: Good Night, Pajanimals! was released December 1, 2009 by NCircle Entertainment.

Characters

  • Apollo is a purple and lime green dog, and the leader of the gang. He's very interested in space travel and often fantasizes about traveling though space in his own rocket ship.
  • Squacky is a very excitable blue and yellow duck. He is very hyper, loves to play practical jokes and is often seen bouncing off the walls (literally). He does, however, have a passion for reading, which is one of the only things that helps him settle down.
  • Sweet Pea Sue is a pink and orange pony. She loves nature and the outdoors. She is a bit of a leader type and can get the other Pajanimals on-track when they want to stay up late at night and play.
  • CowBella is a pink, purple and white cow with an Italian accent, who sometimes speaks using Italian phrases such as "Buon giorno" or "Mamma mia!" She is a very well-mannered cow and loves elegance. She also enjoys playing dress-up. Her name is a pun on the Italian phrase "Ciao bello".

Songs

Each episode of the series features an original song. The songs for Pajanimals were written by Michael and Patty Silversher with lyrics by Rockwell and Judy Rothman.

The theme song for the series features the Pajanimals and Mom singing about the fact that they are "ready for beddy-bye". Each character is introduced as the song shows them getting ready for bed -- Apollo is looking forward to a goodnight hug, Cow Bella is in bed "snug as a bug", Squacky has picked out a book to share, and Sweetpea Sue is getting ready to put on her pajamas. The program's theme song is not aired on Sprout, but was made freely available online (see "press release" link.) It is also included on the program's soundtrack album and the DVD release.

On August 3, 2009, the soundtrack was released exclusively on Amazon.com[1] The songs were rerecorded for the official soundtrack, featuring additional instrumentals and vocals not heard on the versions of the songs aired on television. Additionally, certain songs were retitled, as follows:

  • Episode 103 - "Sleepy Head"
  • Episode 104 - "Nighttime Playtime"
  • Episode 105 - "Morning Time"
  • Episode 107 - "Ode to Sleep"
  • Episode 108 - "Night Will Sing Us All to Sleep"

Apollo Candy logo
Kate eating an Apollo bar.

The Apollo Bar is one of the many foods that were first found in the Pantry within the Swan station by Kate in "Adrift". What is unusual about this candy is that it is the only food item that is not branded with the DHARMA Initiative logo in some way (although the boxes have the Swan logo on them). Like Dharmalars, Apollo bars are one of the only DHARMA-related food items with a unique brand name (unlike the generic names given to DHARMA Ranch Composite dressing, DHARMA Macaroni & Cheese Supper, etc.) Apollo Bars are advertised as being "FULL O' NUTS" and the bar that Kate picked up had a "Consume By" date of October 23, 2004.

During the Lost Experience, the bar was specifically manufactured, advertised and distributed amongst Lost fans worldwide, tying into the overall arc of the game. A detailed history about the company and its founder was also provided (see Apollo Candy Company).

Occurrences in Lost

The Apollo Candy Bars have made a number of appearances throughout the show.

  • John Locke had a bar on the computer table. He was trying to remember the blast door map. ("S.O.S."), and not paying attention to the countdown timer alarm.
  • Edmund Burke is hit by a bus with an Apollo logo on the side. The image was barely visible in the episode, but behind the scenes photographs posted by Ryan Ozawa of Hawaiian podcast "The Transmission" confirmed the reference. ("Not in Portland")

Information from the Lost Experience

Back-cover of Lost: The Official Magazine Volume 1, Issue 6, one of the first references to the website

During The Lost Experience ARG, the Apollo Candy Bars assumed much more importance; they were handed out at specified locations at specific times (as mentioned on the official website, or by Rachel Blake, the ARG's main character). The writers of the game even advertised the bar on television and in Lost: The Official Magazine, with the tagline "the little bar with the really big taste!"

Commercial

The following video appeared on the Internet around the time of the launch of a dedicated website to the Apollo bar, and indeed also featured on the site. It was also reportedly played during the commercial break of an episode of Jimmy Kimmel! Live. The audio can additionally be heard after many episodes of the Official UK Lost Podcast.

Apollo Candy Website

Giveaway dates & places

On August 8, 2006, the Apollo Candy website (formerly apollocandy.com; see note below), a part of The Lost Experience, went live, hosted on the same server as thehansofoundation.org, another Lost Experience website. The URL was found on a full page Apollo Candy advert on the back of Lost: The Official Magazine. According to their "official website", the Apollo Candy Company, which manufactures the Apollo Candy Bars, was founded in San Francisco by M. David Benson in 1962. The company ran into hard times in the 1970s, but was rescued by Alvar Hanso, the head of the Hanso Foundation. Apollo is now the "private purveyor of chocolates for Alvar Hanso and his many companies." The website proclaims that "The Apollo Candy Company is a subsidiary of the Hanso Group."

The image of the candy bar on The Apollo Candy website and the free samples of the candy bar, have an expiration date of October 23, 2006, exactly two years after the bar Kate ate. The website also features an image of a balloon flying toward the sun - there is no reference for this image within the text (It is most likely for Apollo, the Greek god of the sun).

The site additionally listed distribution points where fans could find Apollo bars for themselves.

Note:

The domain registration for this in-game website has since expired, and the game website no longer exists. During the course of The Lost Experience, the domain was presumably operated by Hi-ReS!, (the company contracted to run The Lost Experience), but according to the WHOIS listing, it was registered via the anonymizer service Domain Discreet [1], [2]. The one year registration expired on April 14, 2007, and approximately on May 27, 2007, it was purchased by another party which hosted an adult website in its place. The domain and current website is therefore no longer owned or affiliated with ABC or The Lost Experience, although the lapse has apparently since been noticed in the course of editing for this article by employees of ABC (see discussion here).

This website became part of The Lost Experience on August 23. The site's URL was printed on the Apollo Candy bars that were being distributed in August and September, at Forbidden Planet stores in the UK and ApolloCandy.com Events in the U.S.; as well as at various comic stores in Australia supplied by Lost Ninja and Speaker.

Fans who received an Apollo bar were able to post their pictures with the wrapper online for others to see. Locations were also added to a world map, effectively showing the Hanso Foundation where the enemy is, and how widespread it is.

The site went active after Rachel Blake sent links to the site in e-mails and the Apollo bars had the website inscribed inside. On the website, Rachel gave instructions for people to upload pictures of themselves with the Apollo candy bars. The site kept a tally of both "Regular bars" and "Golden Oracle bars" (bars with a special hologram code on the back). Rachel also mentioned that when enough Apollo bars were found, she would reveal further instructions and a big "truth" about the Hanso Foundation. [3]. This in actuality was the Norway video, as well as information on the Missing organs folder.

Trivia

Apollo bar as seen at Lost: The Auction
  • In the Lost Experience Mental Health Game, the reward for memorizing a sequence of 42 numbers is an Apollo Bar.
  • The Apollo Candy Bar's name is in reference to Apollo, the Greek god of the sun, music, "medicine and healing, light, truth, archery and also a bringer of death-dealing plague". All these elements are found thematically throughout Lost, in particular healing and disease.
  • The bar was referenced on the apollocandy.com website as milk chocolate, though both the commercial and magazine spread state dark chocolate (as were the real bars distributed to fans worldwide). However, this may not necessarily be a goof as we know there are different types of Apollo bar (Kate was shown in "Adrift" eating a "golden caramel" Apollo bar).
  • Apollo Bars featured in the season 7 premiere of Scrubs (October 25, 2007) where they were spotted as part of the supply of a vending machine.
  • Apollo Bars are featured in episode 2 of ABC's web series "Squeegees". One of the characters breaks through a window of a board room where a meeting is taking place, the topic of discussion is whether or not there should be more Nougat in the bars, and a cross section diagram of a bar is shown.
  • Apollo Bars are from Independent Studio Services. [4]
  • Apollo bars are up for auction at Lost: The Auction.
