The show follows Danny Douglas, a 12-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.
