When the giants names are real strange,check to see if theres hidden words in them,sometimes backwards. In the story Shell Game [ I believe] the reversed names would be: Flat Broke,his wife,Also Broke,and I've forgottens the boys,but also the same way...
There was a chimp in one episode. The return of Debbie ??!!!!! Most likely!
The reason they hunt the little people down is that they are a threat to the state! They possess different ideas, superior technology and could also be held hostage against any military incursion from the earth! JB
Thrombeldinbar also featured the great Alfred Ryder as Parteg! You might remember him from various sci-fi shows like Voyage to the bottom of the sea where he played Captain Kruger, the phantom and a scientist fighting a fire monster! He also played the leader of The Invaders in two out of three episodes and also was Dr.Crater who was in love with a salt sucking vampire in Star Trek! Alas he did no LIS shows or Time Tunnels! The Troy MaClure reference above was deliberate too! JB
Strangely enough Irwin tried to get rid of Kobick in the second season, althoiugh he appears three times in it, each of the stories was written for another SID inspector and it was only the actors unavailability that made Irwin seek out Kobick! Talk about not being wanted, eh! JB

Kevin Hagen was also one of the few who appeared in all of Irwin's shows! Once in LIS, once in Voyage I think, numerous appearances in Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants combined! Michael Ansara and Malachai Throne are also in that group! Anyone else? JB
Hmmm good trivia question, jb, being the neophyte I am don't think I know. Kevin Hagen was a prolific actor, for sure, almost any show that was anything had him in it, of the three Malachi Throne is still alive, Ansara passed just a short while ago...
Unfortunately, Malachi also passed away a few years ago

Malachi Throne died was it last year? Or was it earlier? He was great as Commodore Mendez in Trek's The Menagerie! His best Irwin was probably The Magnus Beam for VOY or Night of the long knives for TTT! JB
No he wasn't in the series! There is a page on Wiki about which Batman villains were real or created by the studio! I know that Egghead and Shame were by the studio while The Puzzler was a real Batman baddie strangely enough considering how similar he was to The Riddler! JB
I've just looked it up and Falseface was a real comic book villain, Farf! Strange also that The Riddler who is considered the third big Batman baddie was actual created in 1948 long after both The Scarecrow and Catwoman who first appeared in 1941! JB
