It did not create infinite copies of him. What it did is bounce him all around the earth in time and space (different places) but there was only one of him. (suggest the contributor actually watch it)

A Vonnegut potpourri with some great moments.
8 April 1999 | by (Springfield, VA) – See all my reviews

Between Time and Timbuktu was an effort at doing an introductory "best-of-Kurt-Vonnegut" for national TV. Although some Vonnegut fans think it's a diluted mess (see the book reviews), it serves well as a quirky intro to some of his themes and characters. William Hickey is wonderful as the bewildered "astronaut", and Bob and Ray are at their peak, with some hysterically funny dialogue. Why isn't it available on video?
