The show had a catchy theme song (with separate verses that played over the opening and closing credits) with several quotable lyrics. During the show's first season, Johnson and Wells were only referred to as "and the rest" during the opening theme song (while the other actors characters were identified by their titles) because of a clause in Tina Louise's contract. This was changed in the in second season, but the lyric "and the rest" inspired several riffs on MST3K and its corollary productions.
