Goofs

Doug Phillips calls Marco Polo "...the first European to explore the Orient..." On Polo's famous trip east, he accompanied his father and uncle, who had already been to China and met Kublai Khan before him. The difference, of course, is that Marco dictated a memoir of his trip while his elders did not. See more »

However Batu wants to get married with Sarita to unite Mongolia and conquer Asia and Europe. Doug and Tony help Marco Polo to produce bombs and protect the fort.

In "The Attack of the Barbarians", Tony fall in love for a princess of the Thirteenth Century and the Time Tunnel personnel interferes in history and helps the time travelers to produce bombs to blow up the Mongolians. There is a great use of stock footages and the participation of John Saxon in the role of Marco Polo. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Túnel do Tempo" ("The Time Tunnel")
