    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • The opening soundtrack is off on this episode: the opening music is actually out of sync with the credits, so that it ends about a second before the final "LAND OF THE GIANTS" appears on screen, resulting in dead air.

      • What's the relationship of the teleporter viewscreen to what it teleports? Apparently the user brings up a picture of what is being sent, but when they lock on to Earth presumably they are bringing up the picture of what they are teleporting to.

      • The title, perhaps the shortest and most generic possible, has no connection or relationship to the contents of the episode.

      • Kirmus' boarding room interior bears a suspiciously close resemblence to the Senator's study from the episode "Pay the Piper".

      • Dr. Kirmus refers to "solar system charts". There is technically only one solar system (i.e., the system that orbits the star Sol).

      • Dr. Kirmus has never heard of Earth. This seems a bit odd, given the giants know about Mercury and Venus (in "Target: Earth") and occasionally refer to the little people as "Earthlings".

    • QUOTES (3)

    • NOTES (5)

      • ABC put out a promotional packet to some of its affiliates related to this episode: a sheet containing a "warning" and having a little squeaky-type "panic button" attached. The sheet states, "PRESS!...on the "PANIC" button for suspense on Sunday, January 25th, when the LITTLE PEOPLE are captured by a giant with an experimental terror machine in the "PANIC" episode on...Irwin Allen's LAND OF THE GIANTS on ABC Sunday, January 25, 1970 (followed by a list of cast members).

      • Betty and Valerie both get new light-colored summer-style dresses, although Betty's subseqently proves inconvenient when she is locked in the freezing chamber.

      • Diane McBain is specifically credited as "Mrs. Evers".

      • Jack Albertson played a somewhat different character in "Return of Inidu". However, in both episodes he manages to play an elderly giant who can teleport things and is sympathetic to the Earthlings.

      • Series regular Stefan Arngrim is not in this episode.
