Film: The Timekeeper
9-Eyes is sent through Time by The Timekeeper, so that she can send back the surrounding images as she records them in whichever era she finds herself in. When sending 9-Eye to the Exposition Universalle in 1889 in Paris to see Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. When Verne scoffs at Wells' ideas of time-travel, he encounters 9-Eye and ends up hitching a ride into the modern world.

  • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: The ending of the film has Verne and Wells riding in a functional flying time machine. When asked how they got it, they only reply "In the future, anything is possible".
  • Hey, It's That Voice! Robin Williams Is the voice actor for the Timekeeper
  • San Dimas Time: When Jules is taken to the future, the Timekeeper is concerned about getting Jules back in time for a presentation he's making at the Exposition.
  • Special Effects: The Timekeeper and its original European counterpart Le Visionarium marked the first time that the Circle-Vision film process was used to deliver a narrative story line. This required a concept to explain the unusual visual characteristics of the Theater, hence the character 9-Eyes.
  • Time Travel: Jules Verne follows 9-Eye into the modern world.
