THE MAGIC CLOCK is the story of two best friends, Hollis and Becket, who, along with their animated pet wombat, discover a magic clock that allows them to turn back time. That way, when they say something they wish they hadn’t, or break something valuable, they can go back in time and make the better choice.
The shows’ main antagonist, Medley, is an over-the-top, silly sorceress, who cooks up trouble with the help of her 10 year-old mad-scientist assistant, Max. They’re from the planet Vermuchi and are given orders from their zany ruler, Maestro, who appears on their television screen.
The antagonists are constantly after the magic clock to use it for evil purposes while the two friends, and their wombat, work to foil their adversaries again and again. The characters are three-dimensional but exist in a fully animated world: almost like comic book characters come to life. Each week youngsters explore basic learning concepts and learn valuable lessons in friendship.
(This children’s television show has already filmed several episodes and the season will be released once the eighth episode is complete.)
