Plot Synopsis

FUTURE-WORM! is an animated series about an optimistic 12-year-old who invents a time-machine lunch box through which he meets and befriends a fearless worm from the future. Created and executive-produced by Ryan Quincy, the comedy follows young Danny Douglas and Future Worm (also known as Fyootch) as they embark on adventures through space and time. As the story goes, only child Danny hoped to find a worldly, thrill-seeking friend with whom he could venture out and see what the world has to offer. Future Worm, who amassed a wealth of experience during his travel through time, longed for a home and family. When Danny's lunch box invention brings them together, the kindred spirits dive head first into their adventures, both at home and through time, usually unaware of the consequences. The Douglas family takes Future Worm into their home, providing him the family he's always wanted. Mom Megan is a loving and scatterbrained toy inventor who inspires and encourages her son's creativity, and dad Doug is an overly cautious stay-at-home dad who while not mechanically inclined, is supportive of his son's inventions. Danny's close friend, Bug, a smart and scrappy eight-year-old girl with a high mechanical aptitude and confident spirit, lives in the junkyard across the alley from him and occasionally joins their adventures. Additional characters include Robo-Carp, a constantly malfunctioning robot fish on wheels; Future Worm's longtime mentor, real-life astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson; and Steak Starbolt, the titular character in Danny and Future Worm's favorite low-budget sci-fi television show "Steak Starbolt: The Best Generation."
