Retro Saturday: It's About Time

Click the arrow to watch the pilot episode of “It's About Time.” Video source: retrotelevision1 YouTube channel.

This week's Retro Saturday returns to the fall of 1966, when two astronauts on Scorpio EX1 flew in space more than 60,000 miles per second to break the time barrier and travel one million years to the Stone Age.

You don't remember this?

Well, you should, and it's about time.

It's About Time was a short-lived sitcom that ran on CBS from September 1966 to April 1967. The original premise was that two astronauts inadvertently wound up in prehistoric days, with cave people and dinosaurs.

The show re-tooled mid-season, having the astronauts return to present day along with the cave family that had taken them in.

It's About Time was created by Sherwood Schwartz, who had also created Gilligan's Island. Sets, props and music were shared between the two shows.

Above is the pilot episode. Other episodes are on the retrotelevision1 YouTube channel. Use the Wikipedia page for an episode guide to help your YouTube search.
