    I went ahead and looked it up, knowing it would bug me all night if I didn't... :D

    Here's what I found:

    It's about time,
    It's about space,
    About strange people in the strangest place.
    It's about time,
    It's about flight,
    Travelin' faster than the speed of light.

    About space people and a brave crew,
    As through the barrier of time they flew.
    Pass the Roman Senators,
    Pass an armored knight,
    Pass the firing Minutemen,
    To this modern site.

    It's about time for you and me
    To meet these people of amazing feats.
    It's about two astronauts and how they educate
    A pre-historic woman and her pre-historic mate.

    It's about time
    It's about space
    About strange people in the strangest place
    They will be here
    With all of us
    Dodging a taxi, a car, a bus.

    Where will they go
    What will they do
    In this strange place where everything is new.
    Will they manage to survive
    Watch each week and see.
    Will they get accustomed to the Twentieth Century.

    It's about time
    For our good byes
    To all our pre-historic gals and guys.

    And now,
    It's About Time
    It's About Time
    It's About Time
    It's About Time!

    Looks like I got what little I remembered wrong, too... it's not "two men in the strangest place", it's "about strange people in the strangest place".

    But then: I haven't heard it in about fifty years! :laugh2:

    Yeesh. Even the theme song sucked! :shock:

    Exactly. I remember the first few lyrics and the melody of the song. I remember nothing whatsoever about the show, save that there were astronauts involved.

    Another sadly forgettable show in that time period was "My Mother The Car" starring Gerry Van Dyke.

    oh, so bad. So very bad.

    I remember that one, too! :laugh2:

    My older sister exhorted me to watch that show, telling me how neat-o I would find it to be.

    But I didn't find it to be neat-o at all. Instead, I thought it was really stupid. She also recommended The Munsters, but I was more of an Addams Family guy.

    DING DING, YEP Aunt Edna from Vacation, she died and they put her on the roof. I knew I'd seen those funky eyes before. Good call.

    That's funny because the other show that comes on right before It's About Time IS My Mother The Car, possibly the two very worst Sitcoms ever created back to back.

    And I'm even older, since I remember her mainly from Your Show of Shows with Sid Caesar.

    Bingo!

    She worked mostly with Sid Ceaser on a TV show called "Show of Shows".
    She has done a lot of work in TV, mostly. That show, "Its About Time" sucked when it was made
    and sucks in reruns too.

    I remember as schoolkids going up to someone and saying, “it's about time, it's about space, it's about time I smacked your face”! Sorta' like, “trade you a hit for a huh”.
