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.

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.

  • One of the best 60' TV series!

    In Brazil it aired until the mid 70s. The dubbing for the Portuguese language was excellent. The characters were very funny and the dialogues were easy for children to understand. I had great fun!



    I would like to have it on DVD, it all depends on CBS.
  • All I have to say is "ooh ooh dinosaur stew"

    I was six at the time this aired, I always watched it, but haven't seen it since it went off the air. I wish someone would bring this one back. From what I remenber it was a pretty funny series, or it could be I was just happy because it had dinosaurs in it. none the less I would love to see this one again just for childhood memories, maybe the low interest was because adults where the ones making the ratings, because if it were the kids i think this one would have stayed one the air alot longer that it didmoreless
  • 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.moreless

    Personally I feel the show should be brought back in syndication along with what ever else is out there. Every show is not for everybody but give us the chance to make the deecision regardless of how many episodes and how long it ran to be the decision maker. I'd like to shar ethis show with my son and grand-children some day. Afterall, shows like Lucy and Dick Van Dyke became classics with an entirely different generation other than the one it was introduced to. Its about time, its about space could offer the same satisfaction to more recent generations and beyond.moreless

    this show was on the air for only a short period of time. oou, oou was the catch phrase for one of the characters. I don't remember much about this series except it starred Bob Denver I think anyway, It's about time I got off this but I have to write a hundred words.
