Back to the Future Title Card

Back to the Future is an American animated series produced by Universal Cartoon Studios, Amblim Television, Ambilmation, Zaloom/Mayfield Productions, and Big Pictures. The series, while set after Back to the Futrure Part III, takes place in it's own continuity (a kind of what if reality) from the main continuity according to Bob Gale, co creator of the Back to the Future film series.


Following the conclusion of Back to the Future Part III, "Doc" Brown settled in 1991 in Hill Valley with his new wife Clara, their sons Jules and Verne, and the family dog, Einstein. As with the films, time travel was achieved through the use of a modified DeLorean, which had apparently been re-built after it was destroyed at the end of the trilogy. The DeLorean now has voice-activated "time circuits" and can also travel instantaneously to different locations in space and time, in addition to folding into a suitcase. The characters also traveled through time using the steam engine time machine Doc invented at the end of the third movie.

Although Jennifer Parker made occasional appearances, the show focused primarily on Marty and the Brown family, whereas the movies focused on the McFly family. The film's villain, Biff Tannen, also appeared from time to time. In addition, relatives of both the McFly and Tannen families were plentiful in the past or future parallel time zones visited. Unlike the films, which took place entirely in Hill Valley and the surrounding area, the series frequently took the characters to exotic locations.

At the end of every episode, Doc Brown would appear with his assistant (Bill Nye) to do an experiment, often related to the episode's plot. The first season also included post-credits segments with Biff Tannen telling a joke related to the episode.



Back to the Future aired a total of 26 episodes over the span of two seasons from the 14th of September 1991 till the 26th of December 1992.
