In the episode Back to the Future: A Verne by Any Other Name (1992), 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 Doc in the series, voices Bart's father Homer in The Simpsons (1989). See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Guilty Pleasure
25 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was this odd trend in the 80's and 90's where if a movie was popular, it would get a cartoon series. Even if the movie was more for adults than kids (like "Spaceballs" and "RoboCop") it got a cartoon. And one of those movies was "Back to the Future". Now, I'm not saying all cartoons based on movies are awful, just look at "Real Ghostbusters", but this one isn't that good. I'm a hard core "Back to the Future" fan, but even I can't defend this as a great show. However, it is a guilty pleasure for me. I do find myself watching it every once in a while, and even chuckling at some of the jokes. I even try to watch the "Christmas Carol" episode around Christmas. If your looking for an animated show based on a movie that's just as good as the movie, this is not for you. But if you're a hard core "BTTF" fan and can enjoy anything with Doc and Marty in it no matter how silly it is, feel free to give this a shot.
