When a storm disrupts a game of hide and seek, Justin Casey and his friends Angela and Corky Roberts take refuge inside a house owned by Professor Humphrey Bumble, an inventor, and his Solar Ion Robot (SIR). The Professor shows them his greatest invention: a time machine built into his home. He plans to use the ongoing storm's electricity to get it working, but the energy sends SIR haywire and its antics damage the machine and make it send the whole house to the past, to the time of the New Testament. Now, as Professor Bumble makes several adjustments to fix his flying house, causing it to shift between various biblical events, Justin and his friends witness and participate in these events.

Every Child Needs To Watch This!
30 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flying House stands out as being the greatest animated series, or possibly series period, to ever touch my life. I grew up watching this at first thinking it was just a nice cartoon. God and Jesus were often mentioned in my house but not in the way that it actually stuck to me so the Flying House adventures really were how I was introduced to Christ.

When Jesus was to be executed I just knew Justin, Angie, and Corky would find a way to save Him but when He was killed I was crushed right along with the trio. I didn't understand why they would want to kill Jesus and people tried to explain to me that He died to save the world but defeated death by rising again. I was too young to understand that then but now when I look back on Flying House I discover things I'd never understood before, most notably when Justin, Angie, and Corky weren't able to see Jesus again after He returned from the dead. It was because they weren't supposed to see Him again in "this" life. That was never directly said on the show but now I know that's what they meant.

If not for Flying House, I probably would not have the close relationship with Christ that I do now so I just really want to thank this show, the writers, the voice cast, everyone, for introducing me to the Bible.
