Zachariah Gibson's Magic Truck - Enchanted
time-traveling trunk seen on the Canadian fantasy series ADVENTURES OF
The trunk was found by a twentieth century orphan boy named Timothy Pilgrim
(Joey Davidson) while looking for a hiding place from Barney a local bully who
was regularly extorting $5.00 from Timothy for letting him use a certain street
corner for his show shine business.
Seeking refuge from his pursuer, Timothy climbed inside a tattered old trunk
with a false bottom that he found in an alley in Toronto and closed the lid. A
short while later, he opened the trunk and discovered he had traveled back in
time 100 years.
There, he met the owner of the trunk, Zachariah Gibson (David Hemblen), a
traveling salesman and seller of elixirs (of questionable benefit) who moved
about the countryside in a horse drawn wagon.
Making friends with Zachariah, Timothy had many adventures as he traveled
back and forth from Gibson's "present" (1875) to Timothy's "future" (1975) using
the wormhole-like trunk as their portal through the years.
The one odd thing about the magical trunk - it moved on its own, so sometimes
Zach and Tim had to go looking for it before they could use it.
