[show]When the second-season crew took over, they brought in Don Messick to play Dr. Benton Quest. But Messick's poor health condition caused difficulty for him while playing Dr. Quest in the first few episodes of the second season, so they had to replace him with John de Lancie, who redubbed the episodes that Messick had played in. But one line of dialogue by Messick wasn't re-dubbed - his "And not a moment too soon" can be heard in "Rock of Rages".
- The intro theme song was influenced by the main theme of the 1994 film "Speed" composed by Mark Mancina.

[show]The development of the show began in late 1992. By the end of 1995, not one single episode had gone beyond preproduction stage and $11 million had been spent by the first-season crew, led by Peter Lawrence and Takashi Masunaga, so they were fired in December 1995. Originally, there were supposed to be sixty-five episodes for the show. But thirteen episodes were cut to recover some of the losses made by the original crew. Glenn Leopold worked for a short time as a writer in the first season. During that time, he didn't agree with the ideas of the crew for the show. So when John Eng and Cosmo Anzilotti took over, Leopold came back on as the story editor. Along with writer Lance Falk and producers Davis Doi and Larry Houston, Leopold brought back the feel of the original '60s series by bringing back Dr. Zin, Jade, and other characters. Despite the fact that they "had" to use Questworld as a continuation, they tried to stay faithful to the original. Many scripts produced during the first season were found by them to be unairable so Michael Ryan, the only first-season writer aside from Leopold to work with the second-season one, had to come in and do "story polish" in order to make them airable.
