Product Description


Determined to prove that Project Tic Toc was capable of sending humans through time, Dr. Tony Newman and Dr. Doug Phillips entered the project's time tunnel before final tests were completed. Now, caught in time and unable to return home, the two scientists battle to stay alive as the Vortex of Time thrusts them into the middle of some of the most significant events in world history. But even more important, as the time travelers encounter famous and influential people of the past, they must make sure their actions don't inadvertently change history and alter the future.

The Time Tunnel rivaled Mr. Peabody for improbable history, and in the series' final 15 episodes, scientists Tony Newman (James Darrin) and Doug Phillips' (Robert Colbert) time travels take an increasingly fantastic turn, as witness their close encounters with aliens in "Visitors from Beyond the Stars," "The Kidnappers," "Raiders from Outer Space," and the final episode, "Town of Terror" (listen in these episodes for the music that shamelessly steals from Bernard Herrmann's score for The Day the Earth Stood Still). Things even take a supernatural turn in "The Ghost of Nero." Tony and Doug's excellent adventures include meetings with such personages as Rudyard Kipling ("Night of the Long Knives"), "Billy the Kid," and, incredibly, Machiavelli, who has been transported to Gettysburg during the Civil War ("The Death Merchant"). They also meet up with such mythical characters as Robin Hood ("The Revenge of Robin Hood") and "Merlin the Magician." One of the series' more provocative episodes is "The Walls of Jericho," in which Tony and Doug join forces with Joshua. Observing from Project Tic-Toc's underground facility, Dr. Ann MacGregor (Lee Meriwether) expresses skepticism over the biblical story. "I'm a scientist," she states. "I don't permit myself to believe in miracles." Other memorable episodes include "Kill Two by Two," set on a Pacific Island during 1945 where Tony and Doug meet a disgraced Japanese soldier, and the episode featuring Robert Duvall as a saboteur who leads Tony and Doug on a "Chase Through Time."

Among this series' enduring charms are the obvious use of footage from theatrical films to clumsily boost production values, as well as some of the more juvenile dialogue. When they learn of one alien plot to attack earth, our heroes proclaim, "We can't let them do it." Time ran out on the Tunnel after only one season. Its cancellation left Tony and Doug to seemingly forever tumble "along the infinite corridors of time" en route to some "new fantastic adventure." Thanks to DVD, we can join them time after time. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars The completion of THE TIME TUNNEL series on DVD March 11, 2006
Fans of THE TIME TUNNEL were treated to the release of the first half of this series on DVD in early 2006. That set was amazing in terms of the visual clarity and restoration work done to make these tranfers truly remarkable in quality. The praise for Fox is well-deserved, as the episodes looked better than they ever had before.

THE TIME TUNNEL aired on the ABC-TV network in the US during the 1966-1967 television season. Produced by Irwin Allen, THE TIME TUNNEL was the shortest of his series, receiving an untimely cancellation in the spring of 1967.

This set, VOLUME 2, brings us the remaining 15 episodes of the series, completing the run of 30 total episodes. Here are the episode numbers, titles, and original air-dates of the episodes making up VOLUME 2 in the DVD series:

17 KILL TWO BY TWO-Jan. 6, 1967
19 THE GHOST OF NERO-Jan. 20, 1967
20 THE WALLS OF JERICHO-Jan. 27, 1967
21 IDOL OF DEATH-Feb. 3, 1967
22 BILLY THE KID-Feb. 10, 1967
24 CHASE THROUGH TIME-Feb. 24, 1967
25 THE DEATH MERCHANT-March 3, 1967
27 MERLIN THE MAGICIAN-March 17, 1967
28 THE KIDNAPPERS-March 24, 1967
30 TOWN OF TERROR-April 7, 1967

Though the writing quality of some of the episodes tended to deteriorate in the second half, there were still some fine episodes in this bunch. KILL TWO BY TWO plunges our heroes onto a Pacific Island where a sad chapter of World War Two plays out.

CHASE THROUGH TIME features three time-transfers sending the scientists over a two million year timespan.

5.0 out of 5 stars IRWIN ALLEN'S LAMENTED 1960s SF TV CLASSIC!!!!! March 14, 2006
By Jeff T.
While the second collection of 15 episodes from the single season of THE TIME TUNNEL (ABC 1966-67) doesn't necessarily consistently shine quite as brightly as the initial group comprising the content in volume one there are still some commendably well done segments to be found nonetheless that includes "Kill Two By Two," "The Walls of Jericho," "Idol of Death," "Billy the Kid," "Pirates of Deadman's Island," Chase Through Time," "The Death Merchant" and "Attack of the Barbarians" being the more noteworthy.

It is at this midway point in the season that producer-creator Irwin Allen broadens the series' premise to include capricously outlandish encounters with Robin Hood, Merlin the Magician, the wrathful spirit of the Roman Emperor Nero and even extraterrestrial beings (on four separate occasions).

Featured celebrity guest-stars and veteran film and tv performers impressively in evidence are Robert Duvall, Mako, Robert Walker, Jr., Eduardo Cianelli, Malachi Throne, Michael Ansara, Byron Foulger, Richard Jaeckel, Myrna Fahey, Allan Case, Paul Mantee, Abraham Sofaer, Lawrence Montaigne, Christopher Carey, Mabel Albertson, Anthony Caruso, Vitina Marcus, Del Monroe, Michael Pate, Donald Herron, John Hoyt, Lisa Gaye, Arthur Batanides, Jan Merlin, Peter Brocco, Ronald Long, Phillip Ahn, Arnold Moss and John Saxon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time Tunnel April 6, 2006
Verified Purchase
Back in the 1990s, and entire new generation like myself was introduced to this fantastic show when it aired on the Sci-Fi channel in the morning.

It was so sad to know that this show only made 30 episodes at the time. It wasnt by any means a ratings failure either. Like "Gilligan's Island"...some executives decided that they had a better show to put in its place at the last minute which in the end was a mistake for them anyway.

They had already thrown a fantastic party for another season. The show was just getting off the ground when it was cancelled.

The first half of this set Volume 1 shows just how great a new show can be in its first year. Unforgettable episodes like "The Day The Sky Fell In" and "Invasion" are classic reasons why this show has stood so long all these years even being a one season show.

The next set is even more fantastic as we are introduced to aliens when Tony and Doug come across them when their thrown onto their spacecraft in the year 1883. There would be two more run ins with aliens in the final episodes, but between them comes the best episode of the whole series "Chase Through Time"..that should have been saved for last as season finale instead of "Town Of Terror"

The final seven episodes of the series are missing the best part of the show and that is the narration of how the Tunnel started, we are replaced with them tumbling threw the vortex to their next destination which in the very beginning of the show no one in the complex could see till they landed and they got a probe on them, someone changed that and made a small mistake.

Finally, the only choice one can make from this show is that the show goes in a loop as Tony and Doug go back to their first landing which was the Titanic...

where is the physical set of the tunnel
I don't know what happened to any of the sets. It was 40 years ago, so no doubt they made it to the trash bin ages ago, so to speak. I was 12 years old when the series ran; due to our location, the ABC network did not come in very well, and sometimes not at all. So I missed some of these. ... Read More

Actors in the Time Tunnel
Sam Groom (Jerry) is a terrific acting coach in NYC at HB Studios. I took classes with him and learned a great deal. I wish he were in more of the TT episodes.

What's with the jungle overgrowth inside the Time Tunnel?
Yes, I've had a similar theory for years. The Viewmaster set for TIME TUNNEL concludes with a 3-D photo showing Tony and Doug standing in the Tunnel with prehistoric jungle growth all around them.
