Default Who remembers “It’s About Time”?

IAT was a 1960s series created by Sherwood Schwartz. It was about two astronauts who ended up in prehistoric times with cave people and dinosaurs.

Unlike “Gilligan’s Island”, IAT was a flop and ended after one season.

I saw it on Antenna TV and I liked it. Not a great show, but it was certainly a fun show.

I only saw a couple of episodes from later in the season when they bring the cave family to the present. It had potential, found Joe E Ross to be annoying in this.

I have the DVD set and it's not a great series by any means, but I really like the episode when the astronauts return to present times and bring the cave people with them. Lots of funny visual gags in that episode.

I do. Wasn’t a particularly big fan of it. Didn’t hate it just thought it was kind of blah.

I didn't know the show existed until it started airing on Antenna TV.

On paper, with Joe E. Ross and Imogene Coca as the cave parents, it should have been hilarious but they were unbelievably stiff with each other onscreen (and which I think may have had to do with their very different offscreen personalities- Mr. Ross considered rather crude even by his fellow television performers and Miss Coca being almost cripplingly shy )- and the astronauts Hec and Mac failed as Gilligan and Skipper wannabees. No wonder it ran out of time.

I read the same thing that Joe could be very crude. I thought he died shortly after the series left the air but saw a Love Boat episode and he appeared as a traveler .

I heard an interview on Gilbert Gottfried's podcast from someone who claimed that he had disgusting hygiene, like he didn't change his underwear for days or something to that effect.

I haven't seen the show in a while but I was wondering who played one of the cave boys. I thought it was Bobby Crawford, Johnny's brother.

Talking Dig That Crazy Theme song, OOOH OOOOH

This is another one of those shows I could remember watching as a little kid when it was first on back in the '60's. I hadn't seen it in multi-decades until Antenna rescued it from obscurity. I remember it was about cave people and it had Tootie in it, who I always thought was funny, esp. when he would go, "ooh oooh". I used to watch Car 54 back then too. But the one thing that really stuck in my mind all those years was the theme song (at least the first couple of lines) "It's About Time, it's about space, it's about the whole human race" didn't remember the rest of the words though.

Now when watching it as an adult when Antenna showed it, I thought it was mildly amusing, but not nearly as funny as I thought it was when I was a kid. This was the exact same reaction I had to My Mother The Car, which I also loved as a kid. I guess It's About Time was another one of those shows that was probably aimed at kids and kids liked it best. Least, this kid did and still kinda does.

My husband loved that show and it was the only time I ever heard him sing b/c one night he started singing the theme song and I guess he realized what he was doing b/c when I asked him what he was singing he never did it again! I watched a couple of episodes with him and they were cute.
