Yep, that young gal in pony-tails is Academy Award winner, Helen Hunt

The TV show, based on the adventure novel and influenced by the Disney flick, starred Martin Milner (Adam-12) as shipwreck-survivor, Karl Robinson, who builds a new life on a desert island. The Robinson family were played by Pat Delaney (Lotte Robinson), Willie Aames (Fred Robinson) and Eric Olson (Ernie Robinson.) An 11-year-old, Helen Hunt played fellow survivor, Helga Wagner. Cameron Mitchell played, Jeremiah Worth (who was on the island years earlier following a shipwreck of his own.)
