* ActorAllusion: Bob Denver's character caused the screwup that launched them into space, and was regularly the cause of further screwups, just like [[Series/GilligansIsland Gilligan]].



* DuelingShows: Ironically, with Creator/{{ABC}}'s ''Series/TheLostSaucer'', which was another Krofft show that came out the same year, and basically was a carbon copy of this show.



** Although, as noted in Actor Allusion, Junior was practically Gilligan as a NASA Commissary worker.

** Although, as noted in Actor Allusion, Allusion on the Trivia tab, Junior was practically Gilligan as a NASA Commissary worker.

* WrittenByCastMember: Chuck [=McCann=] actually co-created the series, and wrote a number of the episodes.

* CelebrityStar: John Carradine was a guest star in one episode; in fact, Bob Denver was so humbled by his presence on the set, that a number of Carradine's scenes had to be reshot.

* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: The launch sequence was stock footage of a ''Saturn V'' launch, and the spacecraft resembled an Apollo lunar module. The real Apollo lunar module carried enough fuel to go between lunar orbit and the lunar surface, once. Yet, this spacecraft manages to visit a new planet each week, most of which aren't even planets in our own solar system. (This probably isn't a case of SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale, because the writers weren't Sci Fi writers.)
