Storyline

The Timekeeper has invented the world's first functional time machine and sends his sidekick, a flying robot named 9-Eye, on an excursion through time from the prehistoric age of the dinosaurs to fantastic cities of the future. Along the way 9-Eye kidnaps Jules Verne and hears Mozart with his first composition, watches Leonardo da Vinci paint a masterpiece, takes a bobsled ride down a mountain, and meets fellow inventor H.G. Wells. Written by David Mullich <dmullich@aol.com>

Quotes

Timekeeper: For your safety, I've invented rails for you to lean on. I call them lean rails. Please do not sit on the lean rails, because they're for leaning. And don't sit on the floor. My studies show you cannot experience Time Travel on the floor.

User Reviews

 
Excellent movie with superb music.
10 May 2009 | by michael-2432See all my reviews

This is and was one of the best films ever produced for Disney. A unique plot, charismatic actors, amazing pictures and a beautiful, beautiful score (by Bruce Broughton). This could work as the advertising spot for the European Union. Displaying the most beautiful sights of Europe which just make you happy to live. Many film locations were in Austria: the green Palais in Vienna, the bob run in Tyrol, the car race course in Styria...

Unfortunately they ruined it for the American version by exchanging the music and adding the slightly annoying Robin Williams as the Timekeeper's voice. I hope they will bring it out on DVD...
