My PROJECT TIC-TOC book arrived today, and after a quick perusal, I have to say I'm disappointed. It is essentially a somewhat updated version of William Anchors' IRWIN ALLEN SCRAPBOOK VOLUME 1: THE TIME TUNNEL. But it seemed that every page I looked at had familiar text about it - the episode descriptions, the notes.

Project Tic-Toc book. Includes photos, and a complete episode guide.

Project Tic-Toc is in its tenth year when United States Senator Leroy Clark .

Senator Clark feels the project is a waste of government funds. The Time Tunnel is also a portal connecting the Time Tunnel "complex" with the same time periods in which Doug and Tony are located. Doug finds himself in the boiler room of the ship, makes his way further into the ship, and enlists the aid of a French lad, Marcel Copot, played by Gerard Michenaud, to help get Tony free.

They have invented a Time Tunnel . The series as a whole pretty much sticks to a comic book level of drama and action without much contemplation on time travel themes.

They have invented a Time Tunnel, which will allow people to visit anywhere in time and space. While testing the tunnel for an impatient senator, Newman and Phillips became trapped in time, and each week coincidentally found themselves at the site of an important historical event, be it the Siege of Troy, the sinking of the Titanic or an assassination attempt on President Lincoln. Sometimes they traveled into the future, and battled alien invaders.

Operation Tic Toc is a fictional project that the United States of Americas first venchure into time travel. It is never stated,but hintered that the project has something to do with the 20th Century cold war. The Time Tunnel is the setting,for the main operations for the scientist,who maintain Americas top secret time machine. Operation Tic-Toc is a multi-billion dollar government project to build a time tunnel in 1968.

Includes a review of the show, cast and guest cast photos and credits, an episode guide with extensive notes, a huge colletibles section, cast interviews, the first-ever blueprints of the Time Tunnel (taken directly from 20th Century Fox construction blueprints!), crew and writer credits, guest star biographies, review of the unfilmed pilot, The Time Tunnel on the internet, an Irwin Allen biography, about 390 color and B&W photos, 216 pages with a full color cover, and more!
  • Clearly the majority of this book is an episode guide blatantly lifted from a previous book entitled, "IRWIN ALLEN'S SCRAP BOOK. Padded out with guest stars screen credits, and little much else. 1 barely saving grace is the collectibles section. The photos there and through out book were poor resolution b/w shots. Only last 4 pgs were color. The interviews were many years past.

  • My foolish heart we felt that next year,would be much easier and it could've.
    We were shooting the last day of the last show of the season.

  • My PROJECT TIC-TOC book arrived today, and after a quick perusal, I have to say I'm disappointed. It is essentially a somewhat updated version of William Anchors' IRWIN ALLEN SCRAPBOOK VOLUME 1: THE TIME TUNNEL. The great bulk of the text in this new book is an exact reprinting from the earlier work: the set-up, the episode guide, the guest cast's credits - all exact reprints from what I can tell - obviously I have not actually read the whole thing - it just arrived today. But it seemed that every page I looked at had familiar text about it - the episode descriptions, the notes at the end of each of those description - all are word-for-word from the earlier volume. And that makes up the great bulk of the book.

    Now, there are loads of new pictures scattered throughout, obviously made possible by doing DVD screen captures - but as the pictures throughout the text are black & white, they are not exactly the highest of quality. In the back of the book, there two glossy pages printed on both sides with some color photos. These look much nicer, but also look "thrown in" as an afterthought to spruce up the book.

    New items include a new forward and afterword by Flint Mitchell; a blueprints section that looks well-done; a new six-page biography with filmography of Irwin Allen by Jet Georgala; the cast biographies look new to me; there's a Crew and Writers section with brief synopses about the creative team that put the show together sprinkled with some photos; which brings us to the Guest Cast biographies.

    The text here looks familiar, but the section is sprinkled with photos. The problem is that these are not always who or where they're supposed to be. For example, there's an entry for Tristram Coffin but above his entry is a picture of Jan Merlin in his "Visitors..." getup. Another error dealing with a guest star of the same episode has the entry for Gary Haynes with a photo of Byron Foulger above it. Barry Kelley's entry has a photo of Larry Ward above it - and so on.

    There are even some spelling errors here that carried over from the previous book: actor John Doucette continues to be misspelled as "Douchette". One other annoying fact about the photos - they look lifted from screen grabs from the DVD - but whoever did it had the picture stretched horizontally, so everyone looks "fatter". Ugh. People just can't get the hang of proper aspect ratios, can they? Now the phenomenon has spilled over into the print world!

    The concept of including the pictures in the guest cast section is a noble idea - I just wish it had been executed a little better.

    The interviews with Robert Colbert and Lee Meriwether are straight reprints from the prior Anchors book. These interviews have to be nearly twenty years old by now.

    New are two sections on modern phenomena related to the series: a pictorial listing of collectables that's up to date enough to include the DVD sets, soundtrack CDs and all of the Argentinian cereal box toys that are frequently found on eBay. There's also a new section on websites devoted to the series - something one can get in a fraction of a second on Google.

    All in all, I'm, as I say, disappointed. I had a sneaking suspicion in the back of my mind that we'd be seeing the same William Anchors text all over again. But hey - it's in a larger font now - good for aging eyes! It's actually good to have it available in print to serve as a companion to the DVDs that were released in 2006.

  • As mentioned, this book is little more than a compendium of previously published articles, many of them originally printed in Bill Anchors' Epi-Log magazine i nthe 90's, then regurgitated into the Irwin Allen Scrapbooks. Unfortunately, the episode guide is just a word for word reprint; unfortunate because Anchors' synopses were always far too long and overly detailed. Conversely, his commentary on the episodes was usually very short. Little more than a few lines here and there ("this one is a stinker"). More annoying then the sheer length of the synopses is his habit of moving the end of the episode to the FOLLOWING episode, reversing what the show actually did - placing the start of the next episode at the end of each story. He would begin an episode with "...the bomb explodes as Lincoln rides safely away, while Doug and Tony are whisked into the vortex of time and dropped at The Alamo." Seriously, what was up with that?

    The interviews are old but interesting if you've never read them. If you look at the Alpha Control Press website, this book is hailed as "The FIRST excellent book on the series." Sadly, it falls far short (you can buy some of the original books with this material on the site for less money). It's far better than the godawful Time Tunnel Companion by Richard Messman and James Van Hise, but since this book is nothing new, and gives no new insight into the program, it's just another reprint. And that's not so excellent. In fact, you'll probably get more out of Jon Abbott's opinion laden Irwin Allen Television Productions, 1964-1970: A Critical History of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants (did that title really have to be so long?).

    I still await the definitive book on The Time Tunnel.

  • Project Tic-Toc, while consisting mostly of material from previously published fan works, is still enjoyable if you aren't familiar with or do not have access to the original publications. It's all here in one place for your enjoyment. Sure it's technically a fan publication, but I don't see any major publishers with any books in the works on Irwin Allen or his TV shows. So get yourself a copy and enjoy this one.

  • Although several chapters of PROJECT TIC-TOC were available previously, those chapters have been revised and brought up to date with new material. Besides this, the original book had long since been out of print and hard-to-find.
