    Welcome to Phil of the Future guide.

    Disney Channel's hit series, Phil of the Future, tells the story of the Diffy family, a futuristic family from the year 2121. When the eccentric dad, Lloyd, rents a time machine for their family vacation, everyone is excited. But then something goes wrong. Their time machine malfunctions and they are thrown out of the space/time continuim in the year 2004. The time machine has broken, and Lloyd is having trouble fixing it, so he, his part-robotic wife Barbara, and his kids: fifteen-year-old Phil Diffy (Ricky Ullman) and his thirteen-year-old daughter Pim, the little menace of the family, are forced to live in the past and pretend to be a normal family in the suburban town of Pickford. The only person who knows their secret is Keely Teslow, Phil's best friend. Together they deal with the things that every teenager in 2004 must deal with: school, bullies, significant others, crushes, homework...and then add the Diffys' habit of getting into trouble by using their futuristic gadgets, such as the Wizrd, the Insta-Morph, Skyaks, the DNA Scramber, and much more.

    Phil of the Future has quickly become one of Disney Channel's most popular new shows, and is quickly following in the footsteps of their hit shows Lizzie McGuire and That's So Raven. As of October 2004, the show was #1 in its slot among tweens and kids, with roughly four million viewers total per episode.

    Rocko's Modern Life

    Rocko's Modern Life

    Follow
    Nickelodeon (ended 1996)
    Rocko's Modern Life is the story of a wallaby, born and raised in the sunburned land Down Under, Australia. A few years ago, he left the comfort of his native continent and came to live in the United States (because of a bully named Dingo). Since then, he's managed to pick up an assortment of oddball, but well-meaning, friends including a gluttonous Heffer Wolfe (actually a Steer who was adopted by a family of wolves), a faithful pet pooch named Spunky, and a paranoid hypochondriac turtle named Filbert with a personal philosophy. "Turn the page, wash your hands, turn the page, wash your hands."

    Other characters that frequently appeared on the show are The Bigheads (Rocko's irritable next-door neighbors), Dr. Paula Hutchison (an always smiling doctor-of-all-trades and love interest of Filbert), and two slippery characters known as The Chameleon Brothers (Chame and Leon). These folks live in a bizarre district known as O-Town, which is actually under the industrial monopoly of a huge corporation called Conglom-O (their slogan is 'We Own You'). Stephen Hillenberg still found success after Rocko, when he created SpongeBob SquarePants in 1999.

    Most of the episodes revolve around Rocko trying to cope with the absurdities and difficulties in modern life and living in a place like O-Town, you can bet there are plenty of those!

    Main Characters Rocko: A very "modern" wallaby from Australia who wears a blue shirt with purple triangles. His best friend is Heffer, and his pet dog is named Spunky.

    Heffer: A very friendly yellow steer who has green spiked hair and wears blue suspenders with red pants. He loves EATING!

    Filburt: All cartoons have a brainiac. In Rocko's Modern Life, it's Filburt. He's a turtle with funky glasses and green pants.

    Spunky: A black-spotted, dumb dog. Rocko loves Spunky, so Spunky's life isn't so bad. Loves eating the Bighead's hedges, garbage and bathes in his own spit.

    Ed Bighead: Wears a white suit with black tie. Rocko's neighbor and married to Bev Bighead. Works at the Conglom-O which rules the town. He is a strict guy. I sure know I would NOT want to live next to him.

    Bev Bighead: Orange hair, green lips, green skinned, just like her husband, Ed. Wears: Pearls like Lisa Simpson's, and a blue and pink shirt. Unlike Ed, she loves Rocko and is very flirtatious.

    Scheduled Times: Rocko's Modern Life is airing reruns on Nickelodeon's new channel, Nicktoons TV, at 3:00 P.M. and 3:30 P.M. on weekdays , at 12:00P.M. & 12:30 on Saturday and 6:00 P.M on Sundays. The series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Film Sound Editing.

    Character Guide

    Manny Rivera/El Tigre

    For the most part, Manny Rivera is a well-meaning kid with the energy and the spirit of a hero. But Manny is no goody-two-shoes. He's also got some serious supervillian potential. When he spins his mystical belt buckle, Manny transforms into the brave and powerful El Tigre, who struggles with whether to use his superpowers for good or evil.

    Frida Faurez

    Frida is Manny's best friend. But she's not always the best influence on Manny. She always has his back when he's in trouble, but she is usually the one who gets him into it. Frida is up for just about anything, the superpower stuff doesn't phase her.

    Rodolfo Rivera/White Pantera

    Manny's father Rodolfo is a good old-fashioned dad, complete with rules and orders that Manny doesn't always follow. He is also a semi-retired super-hero known as the White Pantera.

    Grandpapi Rivera/Puma Loco

    Manny's Grandpapi is the nicest old man out there. But he is also evil to the core, and wants Manny to be the same way. He is a retired super-villian known as Puma Loco. To describe his relationship with his son (Manny's super-hero father) it would be: love/hate.moreless

    CTV (ended 1996)
    In this popular series that ran from 1994 to 1996, Benton Fraser comes to Chicago in an attempt to find out who killed his father. After solving the murder, he decides to stick around and work for the local Canadian consulate. He has made friends with a local detective, Ray Vecchio, whose sister, Francesca, has a major crush on him. Although Vecchio is often confused by Benton's strange way of doing things and Benton is often confused by how things are done south of the border, the two get along famously, having an incredible on-screen chemistry. Due South was originally a made-for-TV movie on CBS, with location shots done in Chicago, but most shots were in Toronto. After the end of the 1994 - 1995 season, CBS dropped the show, and CTV had to secure outside funding to finish off the year, even though CBS did order more episodes as a mid-season replacement in 1995 - 1996. The show was cancelled in 1996 due to low ratings, with the final episode airing in Canada in May of 1996. A year later, they resurrected some of the cast and crew to create the 1997 - 1999 spin-off. While many of the cast from the original show returned, they were unable to secure David Marciano to continue his role as Ray Vecchio. The ratings never lived up to the producers hopes, and the spin-off was cancelled after 26 episodes. There is often confusion as to whether the 26 episodes with Callum Keith Rennie is part of the original series with David Marciano, because the two series were combined and presented together in the United States as one series with three seasons.

    Hank and Dean Venture, with their father Doctor Venture and faithful bodyguard Brock Samson, go on wild adventures facing megalomaniacs, zombies, and suspicious ninjas, all for the glory of adventure. Or something like that. Hank and Dean Venture are relatively identical twins, only born four minutes apart, who live for the thrill of adventure. Their dated vocabulary and high-pitched voices are intentionally annoying, especially to their father, Doctor Venture, a boy genius turned mediocre scientist who hates everything about his life. In the midst of this conflict is Brock Samson, a man of swift neck-breaking action. Preferring to resort to his brawn instead of his brain, Brock is simple but effective, and does a better job at taking care of the kids than Doctor Venture, as long as they leave his treasured Dodge Charger alone. The Venture Brothers is a take off of Johnny Quest and the Hardy Boys.moreless

    Living Single was a situation comedy that centered on the lives of a group of six African American friends living in (or near) a Brooklyn brownstone. The series focused on the personal and professional lives of each character, as well as their relationships with one another. Khadijah James, editor and publisher of the urban independent monthly Flavor, shares an apartment with her sweet but naive cousin Synclaire, an aspiring actress who works as Khadijah's receptionist; and her longtime friend Regine Hunter, an image-conscious boutique buyer with a fondness for gossip and wigs. Maxine Shaw, a sharp-tongued attorney and Khadijah's best friend, stops by frequently to share her unique insights and make sure the girls' refrigerator isn't overstocked. Living upstairs are Overton Wakefield Jones, a friendly handyman who holds deep affection for Synclaire; and Kyle Barker, a handsome funds manager whose constant verbal sparring with Max does little to mask their obvious sexual attraction.
