Future-Worm! is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Ryan Quincy, who previously created 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.
The show follows Danny Douglas, a 13-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.
- The voice acting is weak, even for 2016 standards.
- False Advertising: The show might make you believe that Danny Douglas time travels by using a lunch box-shaped time machine.
- The character designs are terrible, especially Future-Worm himself.
- The theme song is bland and mediocre.
- The plot is bland and mediocre, too.
- It's a rip-off of Rick and Morty and Back to the Future, as it bears too many similarities to those shows, from very similar character dynamics to the extremely similar premise: "A boy (Morty/Danny) and a worm (Rick/Danny) goes on adventures time-traveling to different parts of the future.
- It's highly pretentious and tries way too hard to be funny.
- A poor man's Out There, which is ironic considering the show was made by the same people who made said show.
- Laughably terrible dialogue.
- Pathetic and poor attempts at action.
- Robocarp (Danny's Robot) is best described as a Megward the Wizard, because he is either getting constantly hurt or destroyed.
- The final episode titled Finale, was a good way to end the show.
- The animation is fluid and beautiful.
- The show improved in later episodes.
- Despite the design of the characters being terrible, the characters are at least likeable and smart.
- As mentioned, the show has a nice concept but the concept was executed very poorly.
