The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a science fiction comedy series created by Douglas Adams. Originally a radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978, it was later adapted to other formats, and over several years it gradually became an international multi-media phenomenon. Adaptations have included stage shows, a series of five books first published between 1979 and 1992 (the first of which was titled The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), a 1981 TV series, a 1984 computer game, and three series of three-part comic book adaptations of the first three novels published by DC Comics between 1993 and 1996. There were also two series of towels, produced by Beer-Davies, that are considered by some fans to be an "official version" of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, as they include text from the first novel. A Hollywood-funded film version, produced and filmed in the UK, was released in April 2005, and adaptations of the last three books to radio were broadcast from 2004 to 2005. Many of these adaptations, including the novels, the TV series, the computer game, and the earliest drafts of the Hollywood film's screenplay, were all done by Adams himself, and some of the stage shows introduced new material written by Adams.

1 I second everything Eugene said. There is definitely such a thing as being "too hip for Hollywood", and this is a clear example. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 14, 2011, 9:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 HHGG boned after the third book, but really took the plunge with the movie. It may not be coincidence that a movie of HHGG was in Hollywood "development hell" for twenty years when Douglas Adams was alive, and didn't actually get made until after he was dead. I feel that the people that finally turned this into a movie really didn't understand why the original material was funny, and largely ruined it in the attempt to adapt it. I would like to think that if Douglas had still been around, he would have been able to prevent this spoliation of his most cherished creation. The movie left an obvious hook for a sequel, but fortunately, I've heard nothing further about one. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on August 5, 2009, 5:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
