Trivia

The first episode to be broadcast in color. Seaview is redesigned with only one set of observation windows and a hatch for the flying sub, although stock footage was used throughout seasons 2-4 showing the sub with three or six windows. New uniforms appear also as well as the flying sub. Over the course of seasons 2-4, there were six different flying sub models used for filming. See more »

Goofs

Captain Crane orders Chief Sharkey to release 100 gallons of shark repellent to attempt to deter the attacking whale. However, the only container shown is a 54 gallon drum. See more »

Irwin's Small Sceen Disaster Hour
24 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The diving bell, with Admiral Nelson in it, is trapped inside a living whale.

This episode and year three's Terrible Toys were Irwin Allen's favourite episodes of Voyage/Sea! Production values in this season opener had been improved from the first season and this is motion picture television of the best kind, in fact, at the same 20th Century Fox studio, the massive budget movie Fantastic Voyage (1966) was being produced on another sound stage and Jonah comes over as a more entertaining humans-trapped-in-giant-thing show!

The Jerry Goldsmith score is even better than many of his film scores, Richard Basehart shines even more than usual and his sexy co-star in the Diving Bell is outstanding. The script is perfect. What more could you want?

One tiny problem exists in the form of Stu the surfer/seaman making a couple of painfully bad jokes about the whale but I can forgive that. Screen entertainment does not get much better than Jonah And The Whale!

This review is the first of 78 IMDb reviews I will be doing for the colour seasons of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. I hope some posters even consider responding to my reviews as I intend to make the IMDb the new home of Voyage/Sea. Enjoy!
