Future-Worm! is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Ryan Quincy, who was previously the creator of IFC's Out There, for Disney XD. The show features the adventures of Danny and Future-Worm, who time travel by using a lunch box-shaped time machine.

After a series of shorts, the full show premiered on August 1, 2016.[1]


The show follows Danny Douglas, a 12-year-old boy who, after inventing a time machine lunch box, sends it back in time. However, it was knocked out into the future as future scientists discover it. Because of its small size, the scientists use a worm and transform it into Future-Worm, a worm with a Photo Receptor Visor, Titanium Reinforced Abs and a Bullet-Proof Beard. He travels back to Danny's timeline as the boy meets the worm, and agrees to befriend him. Danny's life eventually changes forever as he has the coolest adventures, head into the past, present and future, meet new recruits, and seek the help of their friend Bug.



Main characters (from left to right): Robo-Carp (exploding), Danny (with Time Machine Lunch Box), Bug, and Future-Worm.




The characters first appeared in Disney XD's 2015 lineup. A series of shorts premiered later that same year.

Disney originally greenlighted the show to premiere somewhere in the fall of 2015,[3] but Pickle and Peanut places its debut following its official premiere on September 2, 2015, pushing Future-Worm! to premiere on August 1, 2016.[1]

Animation was provided by Titmouse, Inc., who also made other Disney XD shows: Motorcity, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja and, for the animation for animated characters, Kirby Buckets.
