    A decade and a half later, or so, James Darren would join TJ HOOKER as Ofc. Jim Corrigan.

    This was my favorite show growing up. Loved the Time Tunnel complex…computers everywhere, consoles. The visuals were really stunning for that time. I also hate when YouTube shows its the “original theme” of shows when it’s, as you mentioned, a remix….and cheesy ones at that. And don’t get me started on those cheesy, stupid animations that people put on here…like the LIS Jupiter 2 taking off and landing or flying over a city . Incredibly LAME.

    @Knightman5577 You’re exactly right! It’s one of those “remix” versions. Fortunately, I have the whole series with the real theme.

  4. Knightman5577 says:

    This isn’t the original score. Nice try.

    @BrainEatingApe He preferred Mr. Peabody, not Dr. but you have a point; at least the Wayback Machine took two living beings exactly where and when in History they wanted to go without government funding.

  6. BrainEatingApe says:

    Not nearly as advanced as Dr. Peabody’s Wayback Machine.

    This show was my inspiration for this posted video, “40 Years of History In 3 Minutes”, which revisits events between 1969 and 2011 to the music of The Beatles GET BACK and GLASS ONION. Enjoy.

    A little TOO far back. ‘Leo’. The series appeared on ABC’s Friday night schedule [8-9pm(et)] during the 1966-’67 season. Originaly, at the very end, there was a lead-in to a sponsor I.D. {“‘THE TIME TUNNEL’! Brought to you by….”}, followed by the names of two advertisers who bought one minute ads during the episode…

    @Kharkovkid Even worse George and Laura Bush’s bedroom

    I remember The Time Tunnel, and I learned alot about history through them, such as The sinking of The Titanic, The Alamo, etc. They should bring this show back on TV, since alot of people don’t care about history, especially the younger generation. Remember: “Nothing in history stands alone”, everything is connected”.

    Another on the long list of 50′s and 60′s T.V. shows with great intro. theme music.

  13. VonWenk says:

    @ryoushii, I think the significant difference between Quantum Leap and other time travel shows was that Sam was actively trying to change history, whereas in almost any other time travel show or movie, tampering with history is supposedly something the characters are supposed to avoid doing.

    John Williams Music

  15. pinboyjorf says:

    the best one was the first one when they were on the titanic.

    This send me back to 1965 !!!

  17. inspectorgrampy says:

    I used to love that show.I wish they would bring it back on classics or heck,if they can remake Hawaii 5 0 why can’t they remake The Time Tunnel. Just sayin

  18. guijaredtar says:

    Like so many other monstrous creations of Irwin Allen, the actual Time Tunnel is compelling – the stories are not; neither is the acting. But the music is good…composed by “Johnny” Williams.

    I come from the year 11 B.C. Before Color TV…

  20. ftsjr says:

    I was only 9 when this show was on, but I’d watch it every Friday night. I only wish that it hadn’t been canceled after just one season.

  21. ryoushii says:

    This show suffered from the same problem all timetravel shows (except one) suffer from, the urge to focus on historical events. So they go back, try to change things, and nothing happens. The one show that broke that trap was Quantum Leap, first by restricting the time scale (1952 or so to the present) and by focusing on smaller but no less important lives and events, while still throwing in a big event or person, like the 65 Blackout, or Stephen King as a boy for grins and giggles.

    @ChuckyJesus666 I’ll have to check that out. I never heard of the book.

  23. ChuckyJesus666 says:

    @mystripesinusa Yes, I’m sure I watched the very first episode the first time aired, about the Titanic. I was already fascinated in the topic of the Titanic, as I had an old book which had been printed very soon after the disaster (still have the book).

  24. ChuckyJesus666 says:

    @frank47hammer I thought it was based on a book called the Time Tunnel, which I also read as a youth; perhaps both the film and the series came from the book?

  25. mystripesinusa says:

    @ChuckyJesus666 It is the end my friend.Chucky.Jesus666 That is the end too lol.I like the way you put that together Did you travel thew the time tunnel from the begining my brother.
