Storyline

Scientists Tony Newman and Doug Phillips are the young heads of Project Tic-Toc, a multi-billion dollar government installation buried beneath the desert. They have invented a Time Tunnel, which will allow people to visit anywhere in time and space. While testing the tunnel for an impatient senator, Newman and Phillips became trapped in time, and each week coincidentally found themselves at the site of an important historical event, be it the Siege of Troy, the sinking of the Titanic or an assassination attempt on President Lincoln. Sometimes they traveled into the future, and battled alien invaders. Ann MacGregor, Gen. Kirk and Dr. Swain are the scientists trying to fix the malfunctioning Time Tunnel and bring Doug and Tony back to the present (1968). Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

The series aired in 1966-67 but used 1968 as the "present" year that Project Tic Toc took place. The year 1978 was twice the setting of the "futuristic" shows The Time Tunnel: One Way to the Moon (1966) and The Time Tunnel: Town of Terror (1967) while 1883 was twice used for The Time Tunnel: Crack of Doom (1966) and The Time Tunnel: Raiders from Outer Space (1967).

Goofs

In the pilot episode, Tony tells Captain Smith of the Titanic that he was born in 1938. Then in episode 4 he states he was 7 years old at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, making him born in 1934. A mistake of 4 years. See more »

Quotes

DOUG AND TONY FOREVER.
18 August 1999 | by (CARDIFF, WALES.) – See all my reviews

This great 60's show is as enjoyable in re-runs now as it was when it first appeared.Doug and Tony;what guys! Two fight happy heroes who roamed through history punching out everyone in sight in very well choreographed slug-fests that took them to such far flung settings as Troy, the Alamo,the Titanic and even the Moon. A teenage adrenalin rush of epic proportions,this show may have featured out-takes and back-projection galore but so what? Robert Colbert and James Darren gave us 30 action packed hours between 1966 & 1967 and for this we must be grateful. We knew it was all implausible nonsense but what sublime nonsense.Without a doubt this was the best hokum that Irwin Allen ever lent his name to and no one-off movie remake could ever do it justice.
