Trivia
Although the series ran for two years (1968 thru 1970), the first 12 episodes were filmed in the summer and fall of 1967 to meet the original planned start of the series which would have been January, 1968. The network was originally planning to use "Giants" as a mid-season replacement show. Since nothing needed replacing on their schedule, the series's premiere date was pushed back to Fall 1968 where it inevitably replaced Irwin Allen's "Voyage" series on the schedule. The 1967 start of the series' filming helps explain the difference in appearance of actor Stephen Arngrim from year one to year two, because in actuality THREE years have transpired over the course of the series 51 episodes!

Throughout the run of the show, the actors performed their own stunts and stunt doubles were rarely used unless it was absolutely necessary.

The props used in this show, (such as the computers and guns) also were used in Lost in Space (1965), The Time Tunnel (1966), Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964), and "Batman" (1966).

Goofs
In the first episode, the Spindrift departed from New York on its flight to London. In later episodes, the departing city is changed to Los Angeles.

In the first several episodes of the series, during daylight hours at the spaceship campsite, the sound of tropical birds can be heard. This was an obvious mistake on the part of the sound editor - on seeing the abundant foliage around the campsite, he probably assumed that the ship had crashed in a jungle setting (as per the series it was established as a giant city park). This sound track was removed in later first season episodes.
