Trivia

The model of the "flying saucer"-style Earth space cruiser was retained by the MGM prop department and subsequently used in a number of productions on the MGM lot, including The Twilight Zone: To Serve Man (1962). Robby the Robot, his ground transporter, and crew uniforms would be used on The Twilight Zone (1959) as well.


Quotes

Cookie: Another one of them new worlds. No beer, no women, no pool parlors, nothin'. Nothin' to do but throw rocks at tin cans, and we gotta bring our own tin cans.


Goofs

When Robby the Robot carries the Doc out of the study after the latter has taking the brain boost, wires can be seen suspending the Doc from the ceiling. The actor inside the cumbersome robot costume was obviously not able to support the Doc's weight.
