- May 7, 2006Most all of the 20th Century Fox, Irwin Allen shows used Burrows B205 computers and tape drives.
It's the same computer used for the Batcomputer. They are highly collectible and a couple of people sell fiberglass replicas of them.

I remember "Time Tunnel" (first-run eps - yes, I'm that old). I
don't remember any Probe Control consoles being used as TT came
before the turn of the decade, as did most of the Irwin Allen SciFi
series ("Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", "Lost In Space", "Land of
the Giants", et al). However, the short computer units like those
seen in the first two Probe Control sets next to Griffin and Carlos,
and behind Cameron next to the twin upright reel-to-reel drives, were
Those units seemed to be "generic" computer gizmos that found
their way into other series of the time, including the Irwin Allen
ones I mentioned above, and the '60s series "Batman." (Incidentally,
the Bat Computer also utilized other props seen aboard the Jupiter
2.) Also, unless I'm mistaken (and I'm sure I'll be corrected if I
am) the short units also found their way into some later series such
as "The Six Million-Dollar Man" and "The Bionic Woman."
I'm sure we'd find them in many other productions as well if we
scoured the ancient movies now available on video and DVD (including
some that we may have already seen on "Mystery Science Theater 3000."
