For the filming of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, a number of detailed sets, props and scale models were created to realize the Seaview submarine. After the film was finished the sets were simply placed in storage. When Irwin Allen decided to make a Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea television series, all he had to do was pull the sets out of storage. This was done at a fraction of the cost that he might have had if he had been beginning from scratch. The film reduced the cost of setting up the show and was the template for the type of stories that were done. The studios, having made the film, helped make the television series easier to produce. The success of the television series encouraged Irwin Allen to produce other science fiction television shows. The most notable of these shows were Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants.

Severeal years ago I purchase a large lot of Voyage items. Including a binder with trading cards, drawings, articles, and photos. The photos and drawings featured here are the first that I know of that has ever been seen by the public? Photos were taken from the original Voyage Seaview Submarine prop. Detail drawings and notes were taken for rebuilding a replica Seaview. The information is quite interesting and very valuable for those wishing to reproduce this fantastic prop!
