Trivia

Although the show only lasted one season and was not ranked high in the Nielson ratings, it was immortalized when Isaac Asimov referred to it in an essay he wrote in February 1967 titled, "Impossible, That's All" (about how it was impossible for anything to go faster than light). The essay was later included as a chapter of Asimov's book, "Science, Numbers and I". See more »

Goofs

In common with 'The Flintstones', this series depicts human cavemen living at the same time as dinosaurs, missing the mark by at least 65 million years. See more »

I'm not crazy, what a relief!
17 July 2001 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Mostly because of the theme song this TV show has stayed with me for 32 years. Yet, if I ever asked anyone else if they remembered it (singing the song in hopes of loosening a memory) they would look at me as though I was truly mad. It was a silly, stupid show ... like a mutant creation through the coupling of Gilligan's Island and Lost In Space ... and I loved it! I was nine, what did I know? Still, I would like to see it again to find out if the pictures in my head match.

Later in this forum someone calling themselves Mariner719 will mention that the rendition of the theme song was twisted among his/her peers to, "It's about time, it's about space, it's about time to slap your face." No fear Mariner719, I had equally bizarre peers. :)
