  • Trivia

    • Magica's head appearing as a hologram is eerily similar to the Wizard from The Wizard of Oz.

    • Gyro's Time Tub also appears in the episodes Sir Gyro de Gearloose (in which Gyro first built it) and The Time Teasers.

    • This is the only time we see Huey, Dewey and Louie as Adults in the DuckTales series. Disney went on to make Quack Pack, which was a spin off of DuckTales starring Donald Duck and his nephews as Teenagers.

    • Doofus and Webby are married, and on telling Scrooge in the future, he has no reaction

    • Despite Scrooge's huge reputation in the past, no-one has heard of him in the future. Except that he disappeared 40 years ago.

    • In the future we see Gyro as a very old man

    • In the future, Magica has taken over all of Scrooge's business, and owns every business in future Duckburg

    • Story based on the famous blockbuster hit Back to the Future starring Michael J Fox
