Disney XD’s Future-Worm!, A new animated tv show that premieres August 1st. Picture a kid who loves science, a worm with a bulletproof beard and titanium abs and time travel and you will be stepping into the world of Future-Worm!.
We viewed the first episode, and it is bright, colorful and fast paced. I am going to fully admit it has been a while since I have sat down and watched a cartoon on tv. I have seen full sized movies recently but not tv shows. I want to let that be known just in case you think I am telling you things you already know about cartoons today.
I was surprised a bit because Future-Worm! is actually 3 separate stories in 30 minutes. It took me a minute to catch up that the stories were changing. I am used to cartoons that are the entire show so this was something new to me. The episodes feature Future Worm and Danny along with their super fun friend Bug. Oh and a Time Machine Lunch Box. Because we all need a time machine lunch box in our lives!
On August 1 episode you will see:
“Long Live Captain Cakerz!” – Danny’s favorite cereal, Captain Cakerz, is out of stock, so he travels back to find out what happened to them.
“Healin’ Touch With Dr. D” – After Danny gets a brain freeze, Future Worm puts him on a future medical TV show where the doctor is a terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex.
“Terrible Tuber Trouble” – Danny’s attempt to make his parents dinner while also playing with his new chemistry set inadvertently leads to the creation of a potato monster.
Danny and Super Worm travel through time to fight random invaders, get cool toys and have fun. This cartoon is great for kids that love science and adventures. Neil deGrasse Tyson is part of the cast and makes frequent appearances. Yes, the show includes an astrophysicist! Ryan Quincy told us that Mr. Tyson has made sure that the science they include in the episodes is correct and still fits the story line.
I was really impressed with the science knowledge that was woven into this movie. You learn cool tidbits while laughing and soaking up the adventures of Danny and Future Worm.
You can watch Future-Worm! starting August 1st on Disney XD!
“Future-Worm!” is an offbeat comedy adventure that follows Danny, an optimistic 12-year-old who creates a time machine lunch box and befriends Future Worm, a fearless worm from the future with titanium-enforced abs.
