Series Description

When 10-year-old Joe receives a mysterious book from his eccentric magician uncle, he has no idea the adventures that await him and his friends Sam and Fred. As it turns out, whenever the kids make a wish, the Book emits a glowing green mist and warps them back through time.

Things get really interesting when the boys are accidentally warped into the future, where they meet their own great-granddaughters, Jodie, Samantha and Freddi, who live in the year 2105 and also go on adventures using the Book, which they have inherited. As they travel through time, the boys and girls are constantly bumping into each other and sometimes help each other out.

Time Warp Trio brings history to life for kids of all ages and times, as the heroes use their skills and smarts to outwit the bad guys and figure out how to recover the Book and warp back home. Each episode is loaded with cool facts about real history.

TIME WARP TRIO is produced by WGBH in association with Soup2Nuts for Discovery Kids. Series release date: 2005

Program Description

Though it's a very hot day, warping back to ice cold Antarctica in 1911 isn't exactly what Joe, Sam and Fred had in mind. There they encounter Robert Scott's Antarctic expedition, endure 47 degree below zero weather, eat hoosh (seal meat) and discover that Mad Jack has brought them to the one place on earth that's too cold for The Book to work!
