An animated series based on the movie of the same name. Marty, Doc Brown, Jules and Verne travel through time in the Doctor's modified DeLorean, bouncing from one era to the next where a different adventure awaits them each time. Between shows there are live-action segments featuring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown with Bill Nye the Science Guy. Written by

Marty's middle name is revealed to be "Seamus" in the series. He was named after Seamus McFly from "Back to the Future Part III" (1990). See more »
In the episode "Hill Valley Brown Out", Doc's shirt changes from purple, to white, to purple again. See more »
Phew! That was a close one! If it weren't for lightning power, Marty would have been trapped in 1955 forever, or at least until 1956.

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 »
This little animated series came about a year after the third movie, either an attempt to keep Back to the Future in the public eye or just to cash in on the films. Either way, this was a fun series. Some of the stories were very fresh and clever. One story that comes to mind is Doc, Jules and Verne traveling back and accidently preventing the extinction of the dinosaurs. Those live action bumpers of Christopher Lloyd are clever and funny. The series vanished after it's production ended and has sometimes appeared on a cable station. Watch it if you can.
