The franchise focuses on the two aspiring musicians, who try to balance their academic career in high school and careers as the Wyld Stallyns. They come across Rufus (George Carlin), a mysterious figure who travels in a phone booth (remember those?), which is actually a time machine. They receive a history lesson of a lifetime traveling through time and kidnapping prominent figures in history like Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon Bonaparte, Joan of Arc, Socrates, and Billy the Kid.
The 1989 film’s success fronted a sequel, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991), two years later. The franchise’s popularity also spawned an animated series (voiced by the original actors, themselves), and a live action TV adaptation, along with a breakfast cereal!
