The ORIGINAL original Land Of The Lost

Almost anyone reading this will think of stop-motion dinosaurs on Saturday morning TV when asked about THE LAND OF THE LOST, unless you only know of that horrible crapfest with Will Ferrell.
  In the 40s, there was a radio program by that title about the adventures of two children who traveled underwater with the fatherly fish Red Lantern. Written and narrated by Isabel Manning Hewson,  the radio series aired from 1943 to 1948 on the Mutual Broadcasting System and ABC. Art Carney was the voice of Red Lantern.

EC comics published a comic book series, which lasted for nine issues, beginning in 1946. It was illustrated by Dayton Ohio native Olive Bailey.
Here is a story from the first issue:
