This kids sci-fi adventure series from the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) and the Tasmanian Film Corporation revolved around Fatty (Scott Kinloch) and his sister George (Lisa Douglas) – the children of a scientist who is experimenting with time travel.
An accident with a time travel experiment leaves their father trapped in another dimension and powerless to return.
Meanwhile, baddies Phil (Barry Pierce) and Nancy (Pamela Ann Davy) are after the crystal rod used in the experiment which freezes time around the bearer of the rod.
With the help of their friend Izzy (Mathew Excell), Aunt Kath (Noreen Le Mottee) and Grandfather Bert (Fred Frampton), Fatty and George try to build a new time machine to bring their father back and outwit the villainous duo, all while battling a trio of rough kids called the Slasher Gang – Slasher (Michael Chapman), Jonesey (Shaun Cocker) and Maggot (Michael Aitken).
