I have a huge fondness for Space: 1999.  Was it cheesy? 
Oh, most certainly.  But it had some great sets, great effects (for the
time--and they still hold up), and the occasional great monster.  The
images of this critter have stayed in my noggin for 30+ years.  And as
silly as it is... it rocks.  This video, uploaded by dowuchyalike on February 17, 2011 shows some highlights of what I call "The Squid Monster."

Egad!  I'd be scared of that thing, too!  Blinky lights and tentacles... a combination for doom....
