Storyline

For his tenth birthday, Joe receives a mysterious blue book from his magician uncle and namesake, "Joe the Magnificent," known only as "The Book". Using a number of often unpredictable and/or unintentional voice and print cues, The Book frequently transports Joe and his friends, Fred and Sam, to a variety of places in history, like Ancient Egypt, the Old West and to the year 2105, where they meet their own great-granddaughters, Jodie, Samantha and Freddi. The only way they are able to return present-day Brooklyn, New York is to find The Book again within whatever time period they are in. Later in the series, Joe's evil uncle, Mad Jack, makes several attempts to capture the children and The Book with his crafty tricks, whether stranding them in Antarctica (where The Book doesn't work) or trying to make their new home in China (during the Tang Dynasty). Written by Peter Henderson

Time Warp Trio Episode Guide Season One

Episode One: 2105

A class trip to the Natural History Museum ends up zapping the guys one hundred years into the future. The Trio run into ray gun-toting robots and meet three mysterious girls who turn out to be their own great-granddaughters!

Episode Two: You Can't, but Genghis Khan

Fred, Joe and Sam travel back to experience life and culture in Mongolia, circa 1220. Their partner in adventure is 9-year-old Temüjin — the future Genghis Khan. Can the boys survive another meal of mutton?

Episode Three: Tut Tut

The Trio accidentally warps to ancient Egypt where they meet the young Pharoah Thutmose and — thanks to his evil minister Hatsnat — get a little too up close and personal with the mummification process.

Episode Four: Sam Samurai

An accidental haiku sends Sam, Joe and Fred back to the beginnings of the Tokugawa Shogunate, in 1600 Japan. Swords, samurai, and poetry contests challenge their talents.

Episode Five: See You Later, Gladiator!

The Book transports Joe, Sam, and Fred back to ancient Rome A.D. 120 — and face-to-face with one big ol' Gladiator. They've seen plenty of professional wrestling on TV — but will the smackdown body slam be enough to save them at the Coliseum?

Episode Six: Lewis and Clark...and Jodie, Freddi, and Samantha

The girls' wish for a camping trip transports them back to join Lewis and Clark on the first U.S. overland expedition to the Pacific Coast. Even with Sacagawea's help, will Jodie, Samantha and Freddi survive life in the snow-covered, bear-populated great outdoors?

Episode Seven: Viking It and Liking It

The boys want to play Vikings Football Smashfest, but instead find themselves in A.D. 1001 with a bunch of real Vikings! It's one wild ride with Leif Ericson as they sail on his voyage of discovery to North America.

Episode Eight: Hey Kid, Want to Buy a Bridge?

There's no place like home — a hundred years ago?! Joe, Fred and Sam warp back to the brawling, sprawling city of New York at the end of the 19th century to witness the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and help to inspire Thomas Edison in his Menlo Park lab.

Episode Nine: Me Oh Maya

A basketball game gets interrupted and the boys find themselves in Chichen Itza, Mexico in the middle of a Maya ringball court a thousand years ago! Of course in this game, the stakes are a little higher because if they lose, they lose their heads!

Episode Ten: The Good, the Bad, and the Goofy

The Trio discovers the hard way that life in the Old West is nothing like a cowboy movie. They need all of their tricks and wits to survive a stampede, a band of Cheyenne, and a full-blown charge of Custer's Seventh Cavalry.

Episode Eleven: Able Was I Ere I Saw Elba

Fred finds out firsthand what it means to have a "Napoleon Complex" when he and Joe warp back to 1815 Paris and meet Napoleon Bonaparte. Luckily, Samantha is also there with pioneering aeronaut Sophie Blanchard, and the three of them experience the ride of their lives.

Episode Twelve: The Seven Blunders of the World

Joe, Fred and Sam warp to Babylon to figure out who stole The Book and meet King Nebuchadnezzar II and Queen Amyitis, the creators of the Famous Hanging Gardens. Can they recover the book before all of Babylon is destroyed, and Joe's evil uncle Mad Jack takes over the world?

Episode Thirteen: Jinga All the Way

Jodie, Sam and Fred land in 17th century Angola and encounter African royalty, customs – and treachery! They join the fierce Queen Jinga and battle warring tribes in a trek along the Kwanza River on their way to a historic meeting with the Portuguese governor.
