Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures is an American live-action comedy television series created by Clifton Campbell that aired on Fox from June 28 to August 8, 1992. It was based on the 1989 film of the same title, and is part of the Bill & Ted franchise. The series follows the misadventures of two time-traveling slackers as they travel into the distant past and future.

Overview[edit]

After the DIC Entertainment animated series was cancelled, it was supplanted by a live action version of the same name. The series was set to air during the 1991–92 television season, but production was delayed until Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey made a profit at the box office.[1] The series ended up airing in the summer of 1992.

Reception[edit]

Carole Kucharewicz of Variety, although praising the special effects, criticized the acting and ultimately gave a negative review stating "Taking two-dimensional teen time travelers and making a movie was a good idea and it made lots of money. Taking one-dimensional teen time travelers and making a weekly series is not a good idea and it's not a compelling enough reason for parents to let their youngsters take over the TV from 60 Minutes reruns."[3]
