In the first chapter, one of the shots establishing the headquarters of Captain Video, is stock footage of the Alabama Hills, California.
The robot suits worn by actors were originally designed for and used in Mascot's Gene Autry serial The Phantom Empire (1935).
To cut costs, the same cave and doorway set used for Dr. Tobor's laboratory on the planet Theros, was slightly re-dressed to become the entrance to the doctor's underground freezing chamber beneath his laboratory on Earth.
