Imagine that as time continues into the future, the past starts to unravel, with various points in history coming out all wrong. Abe Lincoln leaves his presidency to pull pranks, Eli Whitney invents flesh-eating robots instead of the cotton gin, Beethoven becomes a professional wrestler, and Cleopatra wants to turn the pyramids into shopping malls. Enter Time Squad, who travel through time making sure that the past stays right on track. The show follows one section of Time Squad: Buck Tuddrussel, who punches before he thinks, Larry 3000, a robot who originally worked with kings and diplomats, and Otto, an orphan picked up along the way who assists with his knowledge of the past.
