* TheBackwardsR: The Cold War-themed episode "Secret Weapon" includes several signs in fake Cyrillic; most are complete nonsense, with "letters" that include a backwards 4 and an upside-down Q. The one comprehensible sign reads ''РЯОᒐEꓘꓕ А-13'', with a flat-topped A probably meant to suggest a Д.

Creator/IrwinAllen, the man behind ''Series/LostInSpace'' and ''Series/VoyageToTheBottomOfTheSea'', also gave us the [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci Fi]] series '''''The Time Tunnel'''''. The premise? Two [[TheSixties Sixties]] guys who don't care beans about temporal causality, Tony Newman (James Darren) and Doug Phillips (Robert Colbert), [[TimeTravel travel through time]], encountering a lot of StockFootage and never quite grasping that YouCantFightFate. MeanwhileInTheFuture, their contemporaries watch and try to decide when things are going badly enough for our heroes that it wouldn't hurt to just send them off to yet another random date.

* {{Revival}}: A pilot for a reimagined ''Time Tunnel'', complete with Tony Newman [[GenderFlip recast as a woman]] named ''Toni'' Newman, was made in 2002 but never broadcast; it's available as a DVD extra. The SciFiChannel announced another revival attempt a few years later, but it never got out of DevelopmentHell.
