Time Machines

Doc Brown's DeLorean - The motion picture Back to the Future, its two film sequels and the subsequent animated TV series BACK TO THE FUTURE/CBS/1991-93 introduced sci-fi viewers to the possibilities and vagaries of time travel.


In the original film, Michael J. Fox starred as Marty McFly, a teenager who joined forces with eccentric scientific inventor Emmett "Doc" Brown (Christopher Lloyd) on a time travel experiment.

Their mode of transportation was a modified Delorean automobile. Get it up to 88 miles per hour and Voila! - time travel.

Marty: You built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?
Doc: Yes, the way I see it, if you want to build a time machine out of a car, why not do it with some style? Besides, the stainless steel construction aids in the flux dispersal...look out!

                -- Back to the Future Part I

In Part 3 of the trilogy, Marty had traveled back to the 1950s, returned to the present, zoomed to the future, went back into the Old West of the late 18th century and then back to the present again. At the end of the film, the Delorean is demolished by a freight train.

While trapped in the Old West Emmett Brown utilized the materials at hand to create a customized time traveling locomotive train. This train was the primary mode of transportation used in the animated spin-off.

Reprising their film roles, the cartoon featured Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, (in live action scenes/Dan Castallaneta as Doc in cartoon form); Mary Steenbergen as Emmett's wife, Clara; Thomas F. Wilson as Biff, the bully.

Along for the adventures were Doc's two genius children Jules (Josh Weiner) and Verne (Troy Davidson); Danny Mann as Einstein the dog; and David Kaufmann as Marty McFly.

The series was produced by Amblin/Wang Film for CBS-TV.
