Can you tell Irwin Allen's spectacular Sixties sci-fi shows apart?

Which series was it — Land of the Giants, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel or Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea?

For children of the 1960s, nobody dazzled quite like Irwin Allen. Before Star Wars — and even before Star Trek — this television visionary brought fantastic new worlds to our living rooms. His four sensational TV shows — Land of the Giants, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea — set the standard for science-fiction. Cool ships! Talking robots! Colorful aliens! Far-flung adventure!

Today, you can see them all as part of MeTV's Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night.

I remember me and my 3 older next door neighbor brothers playing Land Of The Giants. They always gave me the choice of being Fitzhugh or Barry. Never one of the cool ones! 😥

15 out of 20, Irwin Allen was pretty busy. maybe some people don't like Lost in Space, but years ago in the olden days, I was playing with a neighbor kid, and told him I was going in to watch Lost in Space, he said "that show's stupid" I don't remember his name, and Lost in Space lives on.

I saw all 4 of these shows but alot I don't remember. I was 14/20 on the quiz. Lost in Space became a little silly after awhile with some of those so-called space aliens.

19 out of 20. Don't know the formal name of the robotic technology, and frankly don't care.

I never watched "Land of the Giants" but was a big fan of the other 3. However, I only got 18 out of 20. For #12, I know that the 3rd and 4th Seasons of "Voyage" took place in the 1980's (after 1973 for Season 1 and 1978 for Season 2"), and I think "Voyage" may well be a correct answer here. As for #7, I don't remember The Robot ever being called this name. I remember him as an "Environmental Control Robot, Model B-9", and can't remember ever hearing the other parts, especially the "G.U.N.T.E.R." part (I suppose the "B-9" in the question should have been the giveaway).

One of the first episodes of Voyage gave the date as 1975. That is how I knew that one.
The Robot was listed as that in the pilot and first show (two different things BTW). I think (?) the B-9 designation is used again in another few episodes.
