Future-Worm on Disney XD
Future-Worm made it’s debut tonight on Disney XD and my kids were pretty excited about it as we have been waiting a few months for this one. I told you a couple of months ago about my visit with Future-Worm creator Ryan Quincy, and you can read my interview with him here.
In this animated comedy adventure, an optimistic 12-year-old named Danny Douglas creates a time machine lunch box through which he meets and befriends Future Worm, a fearless worm from the future (with titanium-enforced abs). Together, the duo embarks on adventures through space and time.

Why Future-Worm Works
The thing that caught my attention most about Future-Worm was that it caught the attention of my 11 year old son. Long before I had heard of this show, he knew what is was and was anticipating it’s debut. You know why? Because Future-Worm speaks right to the brain of a tweenish aged boy, it speaks their language. But do you know what’s even cooler? That I can sit down and enjoy this show with him and enjoy our time together.
I think that too often we don’t realize that our kids want us to share in the things that interest them. When I take the time to do this, I usually find myself enjoying it as much as he does. Since I had already screened an episode of Future-Worm, I was pretty certain that he was going to love it. He has asked me a million questions in anticipation, so it was really fun to finally sit down and watch it with him.
I think that it’s a great show to watch with your kids. It incorporates science and adventure and some really quirky (remember, tweenish aged boys…) humor. It’s very well written and there are even a few science lessons here and there. I love the dialog that it created between my son and I and hey! I’ll take whatever time I can get hanging out with my favorite tweenish kiddo!
Needless to say, my son LOVED it and we will definitely be setting the DVR to record future episodes!
