In season two, episode eight, "A Verne by Any Other Name", Verne tries persuading Jules Verne to change his name to Bart Simpson, so that Doc and Clara will not end up naming him after the author. Dan Castellaneta, the voice of the animated Doc on this show, voices Bart's father Homer in The Simpsons (1989). See more »

After the credits, Biff Tannen appears and makes a comment/joke about the episode. For example, the episode that involves baseball has Biff saying "Hey butt-head, how do you hold a baseball bat? By its wings! Ha ha ha". Then Biff holds a real bat by its wings which ends up biting him and ending that segment. See more »
Instead we got Doc Brown and his family. Bumber. I mean, Marty was in it, but he wasn't the center, central driving force of the story and as kids we didn't like that one bit.
Sure...it was still fun. It was still funny, and Marty was still there, but the focus was on the Brown children, likely because the people that made the cartoon decided that--despite the fact that there were tons of cartoons about teenagers and adults--that children wanted a cartoon about kids their own age.
And because of that it really wasn't Back to the Future.
You couldn't buy us off that easy.
