Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures (1992 TV series)
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures is an American live-action sitcom television series created by Clifton Campbell that aired on Fox from June 28 to August 9, 1992. It was based on the similarly-titled 1989 film, and is part of the Bill & Ted franchise. The series follows the misadventures of two time-traveling slackers as they travel into the distant past and future.
After the DIC Entertainment animated series was cancelled, it was supplanted by a live action version of the same name. The series was set to air during the 1991–92 television season, but production was delayed until Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey made a profit at the box office. The series ended up airing in the summer of 1992.

Carole Kucharewicz of Variety, although praising the special effects, criticized the acting and ultimately gave a negative review, stating: "Taking two-dimensional teen time travelers and making a movie was a good idea and it made lots of money. Taking one-dimensional teen time travelers and making a weekly series is not a good idea and it's not a compelling enough reason for parents to let their youngsters take over the TV from 60 Minutes reruns."
