Verne Brown talks to Benjamin Franklin.

  • Franklin is the only historical figure encountered by the time-travelers during their journeys throughout history. The only other figure depicted in the series is Caligula, but neither the Browns nor Marty actually meet the future Roman emperor.
  • In the episode, "Go Fly A Kite", Verne Brown (mistakenly) claims that he is Franklin's son, and attempts to take up residence, particularly after being told to "Go home!!".
