  • Introduction: "We travel through time to help history along. Give it a push when it's needed. When the Omni's Red it means history's wrong. Our job is to get everything back on track. Green light kid, We did it!" ========================= Phineas Bogg is a member of a group people called Voyagers. They help history along. Give it a push where it's needed. He is a regular human that was living as a pirate a few hundred years ago, when he was chosen to be a voyager. He travels by way of a gold pocket watch like device called an omni. When the light is flashing red, it means history is wrong. His job is to fix it. In the pilot episode, Bogg ends up in 1982 when his omni malfunctions. (He is only supposed to be able to go as far as 1970.) He ends up in the apartment where 12 year old Jeffery Jones and his aunt and uncle live. (Jones parents were recently killed in an accident.) While there, Jeffery's dog grabs hold of Bogg's guide book (basically a history book.) Bogg being a pretty inept history person has no clue what to do without his book. One thing leads to another and Jeffery falls out of the building's window. The only way to save him is for Bogg to jump out after him and travel through time. Now Bogg is stuck in time with a 12 year old kid (Jeffery), no guide book, and no way of getting Jeffery back. But he does have an ace in the hole. Jeffery's dad was a history professor and Jeffery picked up much of his knowledge. So now the two of them, travel through time, giving history a push along where it is needed. =============== Company credits: Production Companies * James D.

    • (after helping Orville and Wilbur, Bogg looks at the Omni)
      Bogg: Green light, kid.
      Jeffrey: But we can't leave now. Not yet.
      Bogg: Got to.
      Jeffrey: But they're going to invent the airplane. We could be there, we could help.
      Bogg: We've helped enough already. Look, I know it's hard. I've been there, too. But whenever you feel this way, you gotta think of all the interesting people in front of you, who really need your help. Heck, we're Voyagers, kid. We got responsibilities. Besides, don't you wanna see what all this has done?
      Jeffrey: (smiles) Yeah!

    • Eddie: The only thing that's up in the air these days is zeppelins, and the Jerries are taking us to the cleaners with them.
      Jeffrey: You mean we're losing the war?
      Eddie: You better like sauerkraut.
      Jeffrey: But what about airplanes? You just go up in the air and shoot the zeppelins down.
      Eddie: Aeroplanes? Oh, kid, they can barely get those things off the ground. That Bleriot guy who invented them keeps landing in the English Channel.
      Jeffrey: Bleriot? But what about the Wright brothers?
      Eddie: Who?
      Jeffrey: Uh-oh.

    • Jeffrey: It's suicide!
      Bogg: I'm a Voyager, kid. Sometimes you gotta bite the bullet.

    • Jeffrey: And this whole thing's because of a girl?
      Bogg: Because of a girl? Kid, wars have been fought over women. One day, you'll understand. But I really don't blame Agnes. This is a case of three people being confused about what they really want. Agnes thinks she wants love when all she really cares about is romance. Orville and Wilbur think they want Agnes when all they really care about is flying.

    • Jeffrey: Who are you? What are you?
      Bogg: What am I? I'm a Voyager. You ever hear of one? 'Course not. No one has. We're the people that are plucked out of time and trained to travel through the ages to help history along. You know, uh, give it a shove where it's needed.

    • Bogg: Do you know what you've done? History's gonna change because you couldn't control your shaggy, little mutt. Empires are gonna fall. Wars are gonna rage! I'm gonna lose my job!
      Jeffrey: Your job? Who do you think you are? You break into my room, you knock me out a window, you bring me here, wherever I am. You deserve to lose your lousy job!
      Bogg: Yeah?!
      Jeffrey: Yeah!
      Bogg: Smart kids give me a pain.

    • Harriet: When you're on the run, every sound makes your skin crawl.
      Jeffrey: How many times you been on the run?
      Harriet: Lots. I'm trying to get back to Maryland. Join a thing called the Underground Railroad, to help slaves like me get to the North.
      Sam: Heck, you don't need no railroad. We'll get you your freedom.
      Harriet: I'm not going to the Railroad to be free. I'm going to work to help other slaves win their freedom. Slavery. It's the worst thing one human being can put on another. I won't rest until there's no such thing as slaves.

    • Jeffrey: This is the dumbest idea you ever had.
      Bogg: There's nothing dumb about winning enough money to get Harriet's freedom back.
      Jeffrey: There is when you don't know the first thing about playing cards.
      Bogg: Hey, you know, I was a Voyager long before I met you. I was playing cards when they were still made out of rocks.
      Jeffrey: Must've been tough to shuffle.

    • This episode showed Babe Ruth as a Yankee in 1927 hitting his then-record setting 60 HR of the season. Baseball history tells us that happened on September 30, 1927. As he trotted around the bases, it showed the Babe and his teammates (as well as batboy Jeffrey) with Yankee uniforms with numbers on their backs. This hadn't happened yet. In 1929, both the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians introduced numbers on the backs of players’ uniforms. The Yankee numbers were designed to correspond to their starting players’ positions in the batting order; hence, Babe Ruth was No. 3 and Lou Gehrig was No. 4. By 1932, every Major League team had also placed numbers on their uniforms, a practice that remains to this day.

    • This episode uses deleted/unused footage from the movies Raise the Titanic! (1980) and Titanic (1953).

    • This episode contains footage from the film Airport 1975.

    • This was the final episode as the series was canceled shortly after this episode aired due to low ratings.

    Trivia (7)

    • The episode implies that Jeffrey and Sam's adventure was the inspiration for Mark Twain's "Tom Sawyer".

    • Bogg has a short memory. When Jeffrey mentions that Benjamin Franklin was an ambassador to France, Bogg remembers that that was where he met him. He forgets that he and Jeffrey just met Franklin in the previous episode.

    • When Babe is preparing to bat against Phineas for the first time, the camera flashes to Jeffrey for a couple of seconds. This scene is reversed, as indicated by the reverse lettering on the uniforms of the players behind Jeffrey.

    • Jeffrey is wearing his pirate hat and vest when he leaves 1798 and is still wearing it when he lands in 1815, but is not seen wearing it during the time travel sequence in between.

    • Bogg mentions that he was a pirate before he became a Voyager, thus explaining where he got his clothes.

    • Jeffrey says that the attack will happen at 7:55 am, but when Bogg and Jackie are in the radar room where the clock says 7:50 Bogg says they have 10 minutes left. It should have been 5 minutes.

    • Just before Phineas is forced to box, Jeffrey activates the Omni so they could escape. When the Omni is activated, Bogg is wearing boxing gloves. During the corresponding travel-through-time sequence, however, Bogg is no longer wearing the gloves.

  • Great notstalgic trip back to the 80's here.

    By bobfrapples8, Feb 11, 2011

  • Voyagers was a time travel show that was in the early 80s. The two main characters were Jeffrey Jones and Phineas Bogg. The duo go back in time to fix a wrong and make it right. Give it a push where it is needed. A great time travel show that was great.
