I am trying to find the name of a old cartoon on Saturday mornings where I think a professor pulled the handle on a time machine and showcased historical times like dinosaurs, the western migration across America and like?

  • Was the professor covered in shaggy white hair and beard? Were there kind-of-recurring villains with prominent noses? – o.m. Dec 8 '18 at 18:09

    Was the professor actually a dog wearing glasses? – Spencer Dec 9 '18 at 0:55

How about Mr Peabody’s Improbable History? Fits your description, although it’s humorous and you didn’t mention that the professor is a dog.

Maybe it was Once Upon a Time... Man? Children's programming, history, a professor, a kind-of-time-machine.


I hesitate to mention one of the worst cartoon series of all time but could it be The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang? (It matches the time frame and involved time travel).
