Remember the good old days when Disney was actually creative. The Timekeeper was a prime example of that Disney creativity at it's best. The show starred both Robin Williams as The Timekeeper and Rhea Perlman as his quirky robot assistant 9-Eye. The story was that Timekeeper had invented a time machine and was going to send 9-Eye on a trip through time. The film was shot in Circle-Vision 360, meaning the screns circled 360 degrees around the audience to give them a view of everything around them. During the trip something goes wrong and 9-Eye is hurtled back to the past, ecountering Dinosaurs, Ice, and angry scottish soldiers who are in the middle of a large battle. Timekeeper manages to get a grip on things and sends her to various points in time like the construction of the Eiffel Tower, the painting of Mona Lisa, and a young Mozart concert. Finally they arrive at the Futurist Fair in Paris and encounter Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Due to Timekeeper's clumsiness Jules Verne is accidentally sent back to the present with 9-Eye and embarks on a hilarious adventure through the air, on the land, under the sea, and even into space. After dropping Verne back at the fair in time for his speech The Timekeeper selects a group of audience members and "sends them to the future". The attraction was full of hilarious one liners courtesy of Robin Williams and was beautiful composed by Bruce Broughton. The only complaint I had was with having to stand throughout the entire show but otherwise I had a blast.

Timekeeper was a good show in Tomorrowland. It was funny and engaging. Timekeeper and nineye were great characters. The screen was 360 degrees and the storyline was good. Don't know why they got rid of it...
