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 (#1.2)" (1966) and "The Time Tunnel: Town of Terror (#1.30)" (1967) while 1883 was twice used for "The Time Tunnel: Crack of Doom (#1.6)" (1966) and "The Time Tunnel: Raiders from Outer Space (#1.29)" (1967).See more »

Are Those Guys Still Floating Around In That Time Vortex?, 15 April 2007
Author: possumopossum from United States

This was one of television's last great shows as far as I'm concerned. I learned a lot of history by watching this show. It even got me a little interested in it. My mother even got me a green turtleneck sweater like Tony's the first (and only, come to think of it) Christmas it was on the air.

I learned about many historical events, the sinking of the Titanic, Pearl Harbor, et al. The Pearl Haror episode titled "The Day the Sky Fell In" was a very emotional episode because Tony's father was among the missing the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. It was really sad to see him standing over his dying father following the attack.

I believe this was one of the first series ever to have these sucky cliff-hanger endings. For all we know, Tony and Doug are still out there floating around in that time vortex. It's like GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. I can't help wondering if those damn fools are still on that island.

It would have been nice to see Tony and Doug make it back home, but that never happened. They just disappeared and then the end credits (with the theme written by a young man named Johnny Williams, for all you music buffs out there.) Hope we some day get to see what happened to them after that last episode.
