Voyagers

By Wikipedia

Voyagers! is a time travel-based television series broadcast in the 1982-1983 season on NBC, starting on October 3, 1982.

Phineas Bogg (played by Jon-Erik Hexum) was one of a society of time travelers called Voyagers who, with the help of a young boy named Jeffrey Jones (played by Meeno Peluce) used a hand-held device called an Omni (which looked much like a large pocket watch) to travel in time and ensured that history unfolded as we know it. For instance, in the first episode Jeffrey ensures that baby Moses' basket travels down the Nile where it's met by Pharaoh's daughter.

Bogg and Jeffrey first met when Bogg's Omni malfunctioned and took him to 1982 (for reasons unknown the Omni was only supposed to go as far as 1970), landing him in Jeffrey's apartment. Jeffrey accidentally fell out of a window, causing Bogg to jump out to rescue him by activating the Omni. Bogg's guidebook - which contained a detailed description of how history should unfold - was eaten by Jeffrey's dog, and so Bogg had to rely on Jeffrey (whose father was a history professor) to help him.

Many historical figures appeared in this series, among them Babe Ruth, Cleopatra, Thomas Edison, and Harriet Tubman. Over the closing credits of each episode, actor Peluce said, "To learn more about [whoever appeared in the show], make a voyage down to your public library; it's all in books!"
