The Diffy family -- Barbara, Lloyd, Phil, and Pim -- are your average 22nd century family. Which is a lot like your normal NuclearFamily, except with aliens. During their vacation through time, their time machine breaks down in the present day. The family must rough it out in the 21st century while trying to get back home -- all the while not telling anyone that they're from the future. (Well, anyone [[SecretKeeper except]] Keely Teslow, Phil's 21st century love interest.)

This is a Disney Channel show, which of course means one of the girls sings for the Disney Records label. (In this case, Creator/AlysonMichalka, who plays Keely, teams with her younger sister A.J. to form the pop group Aly & AJ (Now known as 78violet.)

This is the last Disney Channel Original Series to date ''not'' to be produced by It's A Laugh Productions, which almost certainly explains why it was cancelled after a mere 43 episodes, in favor of all the other shows that were. It lasted from 2004 to 2006.

** In "Dinner Time", Barb's trying to prepare a typical American dinner party. Her research leads her to believe that it should be 50's style, right down to the clothes. Phil ends up looking like [[HappyDays Fonzie]], right down to flashing the classic double thumbs up right after being zapped with the Wizard and immediately [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] it.

* RedStringofFate: Played with with Phil and Keely. In "Time Release Capsule", Keely puts her own childhood music box in the school's time capsule; Phils mom finds it a century later and plays it for him as a baby. It's revealed in "Christmas Break" that Phil was the one who broke the time machine, but that if he hadn't stopped to help Keely, the family would have been caught in a massive time-storm and gotten lost forever.
