It's About Time Pictures For pictures from It's About Time visit The Sitcoms Online Photo Galler on It's About Time Scheduled Times Because It's About Time only ran for one season, there were not enough episodes to put in syndication. It's About Time not being in syndication it is not airing anywhere right now as far as I know. Maybe eventually this rare gem will air like it should. I just learned from reading our forums here that two episodes of It's About Time can be seen in The Museum of Television & Radio in New York City. The episodes are "The Stowaway" & "20th Century, Here We Come." If you are in NY be sure to stop by there. It might be your only chance to see it.

It's About Time: Products In 1966 CBS turned It's About Time into a board game. To see what the board game looked like click here to see the box top, and click here to see the game board. In 1967 there was an It's About Time metal lunch box, that was complete with a thermos. It was made by a company called Aladdin Here is a website that has many pictures of the It's About Time lunch box It's About Time VHS' Robert's Hard To Find Videos.com is selling four episodes of It's About Time on VHS. I am not sure how reliable the website is, or where they got the episodes from, I am guessing they are public domain episodes. I added it just in case anybody wants to check it out.

  • I remember as a kid in Claifornia loving this show. It was new and funny and very different from other sit-coms at that time. It gave me slight glance at history of the pre-historic age and what it must have been like to live in those times.
