The Wizard of Speed and Time Locations
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "The Wizard of Speed and Time":
The Wizard's house was Mike Jittlov's house; The Wizard's garage: Mike Jittlov's garage...
...In general, if it is shown to belong to Jittlov in the movie, it really
does. The Los Angeles locations are easily locatable on a Los Angeles map. The whole movie was shot in and around the northern Los Angeles home of Jittlov, around the hills beneath the Hollywood sign, and suchlike. Certain quick shots of hills and valleys in Mike's short films were photo cutouts from travel magazines, animated by Mike on his famous(infamous?) JACAMPAC animation complex.
A few moments in the Wizard Run sequence were shot in Las Vegas, but they barely count, since they were no more than a few seconds at most.
There is a rumor that Harvey Bookman's pool (which the Wizard is thrown into and stays in beyond the lung capacity of most mortals) is actually Bill Shatner's pool in the Hills of Beverly, but that is unsubstantiated.

The tunnel sequence was on the east side of the tunnel in griffif park just below the observitory. The same place the crash for the Warren bety film "Heaven can wait" was shot and the 1969 Into of the VW Thing was shot. [Thanks to Chris Roberts]
