Anime / Flying House

Flying House, full title: Time Classroom, Adventures of The Flying House, is a children's anime series produced by Tatsunoko Production, under directors Masakazu Higuchi and Mineo Fuji, and aired by TV Tokyo and local stations across Japan. Originally airing from April 5, 1982, to March 28, 1983, the series culminates in 52 episodes. The series was also distributed in the United States by the Christian Broadcasting Network (who previously dubbed its predecessor, Superbook), airing both in syndication and on the old CBN Cable Network (now ABC Family). All episodes are airing on TBN and its sister network Smile of a Child, and are available online at the Christian Broadcasting Network site.

The story of the anime consists of three young children—Justin Casey, Angela Roberts and her younger brother Corky Roberts, who discover what they believe to be an abandoned house in the middle of the woods while playing hide-and-seek. Inside, they soon discover SIR—a friendly little robot, and Professor Humphrey Bumble (Tokio Taimu in the original Japanese version)—an eccentric professor who had recently perfected a time machine. Using the time machine, the group go back through time, experiencing and reliving the past.
