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 »

Everyone remembers this show that no one remembers....
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found the common thread through most of the member comments for IT'S ABOUT TIME to be hilarious: three pages of comments from startled people who all thought they were the ONLY ones who remember the show! And everyone can still whistle the theme song. The thing that captivated me about this show when I was a kid were the dinosaurs, lifted mostly from the movies DINOSAURUS! and THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN. In fact in one scene where a tyrannosaurus (from DINOSAURUS!) is supposed to be trying to attack some cave men hiding in a cave you can clearly see that it's actually digging away at the entrance to a mine, complete with supporting timbers and a sign warning people to keep out. Later on when (I assume) the show wasn't doing too well in the rating and the producers decided to bring cave people back to the future in a sort of BEVERLY HILLBILIES scenario I quickly lost interest. The only other things about the show that really stand out in my memory are the goofy cast of cave people (Mike Mazurki, Joe E. "Ooh! Ooh!" Ross, Imogene Coca, and a sort of prehistoric Daisy Duke who always wore nylons under her animal skins) and the fact that one of the two astronauts (I think if was Frank Aletter, although I'm not sure) had to dye his hand blonde because the producers didn't want two brunettes in the leads.

You know, that's a lot to stick in one's memory after forty years!

I could easily see this show being resurrected as a big budget theatrical comedy (replacing "cheesy" stop-motion dinos with cheesier CGI effects), with Tom Arnold as the leader of the cave family and Will Farrell and Greg Kinnear as the astronauts. Ugghhhh.......
