- Verne Brown
Verne Newton Brown is a
fictional characterin the "Back to the Future" motion picture trilogy, played in " Back to the Future Part III" by Dannel Evans and voiced in the by Troy Davidson.
Verne was born on
October 29, 1888, the youngest son of Doc and Clara Brown. His first name is in reference to Jules Verne, the favorite novelist of his parents. His middle name was revealed in as a reference to Isaac Newton. He assisted his own birth via time travelin the episode, "A Verne By Any Other Name".
Verne is usually a quite cheerful young man; however, he dislikes losing and doing chores. He likes
video games and watching television. He is almost always seen wearing a raccoonskin cap like Davy Crockett, even when swimming. Unlike older brother Jules, Verne appears to be quite popular at school and has many friends, including Marty McFly. He also acts his age, unlike Jules, who acts at least 10 years older. At one point, he believed that he was adopted, due to not being as intelligent as the rest of the family. However, this turned out to simply be fear due to Jules teasing him. His favorite insult is "skunkhead", mostly to Jules (ironic since it is Verne who wears a 'coon skin cap on his head.)
"Back to the Future Part III"
When Doc and Clara were left behind in
1885near the end of the film, they had no way of leaving the 19th century since the De Loreantime machine, with Marty inside it, had gone back to 1985where it was destroyed by a train (Marty managed to escape in time). Doc and Clara married, and had their sons Jules in 1886and Verne in 1888.
Doc knew that he should not be in the past, and neither should his family, since Clara should have died in 1885 and Jules and Verne never existed originally. As such, he managed to build a new time machine out of a steam train and managed to get his family out of the 19th century and back to the 20th century. The family visited
1985at the end of the film to see Marty and Jennifer, where Verne met them for the first time.
"Back to the Future: The Animated Series"
The animated series reveals that Verne, along with the rest of the family, moved to the 20th century. By
1991, when the series began, Verne was about 8 years old (biologically) and settled in very well to the 1990s. A few episodes centered around Verne - he visited the American Civil Warafter an argument with Jules, thought Benjamin Franklinwas his father (again, after arguing with Jules) and accidentally interferes with Franklin's kite experiment, brought back a dinosaur egg to present day Hill Valley, and assisted in his own birth in a predestination paradoxthat ended with him being named for himself, as before his arrival, neither of his parents were going to name him "Verne", and it was only after naming him that Doc and Clara realized their children had become coincidentally named "Jules" and "Verne".
