The Key to Time story-arc from Doctor Who (1963) is a strong influence behind Josh Kirby: Time Warrior and it's story. In it's 16th season, The 4th Doctor (Tom Baker), K9 (John Leeson) and new companion Romana (Mary Tamm) set out across time and space on a quest to search for all 6 segments of the Key to Time and prevent the Key to Time from being possessed by the evil Black Guardian. Josh Kirby: Time Warrior is the story of 20th century teenager Josh Kirby joining Irwin 1138 and Azabeth Siege on their quest across time to search for the six pieces of the Nullifier and prevent Doctor Zoetrope from possessing all 6 pieces.

This is one of the strangest and most idiotic shows I've ever seen. The premise is cheerfully boneheaded, but could only work with under a larger budget or better production values. While there are some rather original in-jokes littered here and there, namely the references to George Lucas (American Zoetrope Productions and THX 1138), the rest of the show - acting, plot, special effects, script - seems to be comfortable with it's sheer awfulness. I'm not tossing out the possibility that there is a higher intelligence at work here (the ridiculous premise and numerous in-jokes should make this show a cult classic alongside Beastmaster) but based on the empirical evidence... what an amazing piece of crap.
