Flash Forward is an American Disney Channel Original Series produced in Canada for pre-teens and teenagers which aired on both the Disney Channel and ABC during the mid-1990s. The show took a look at the lives of two best friends and neighbors since birth, Tucker and Rebecca, and their respective adventures as they travel through the world of eighth grade. The show was produced by Atlantic Films in association with the Disney Channel (Buena Vista International, Inc.). Flash Forward is notable for being the first of the original series created by Disney Channel in the late 1990s.

Characters

Tucker "Tuck" James (Ben Foster)

Tucker is a 13-year-old who has just begun the eighth grade and sees it as a life-altering event. Tucker faces the travails of a teen's life with his trademark humor and rebounds from the fouls dealt by bullies and the occasional intruding parent by seeking solace in his friendship with Miles. He and Becca have been best friends since they were born and remain committed to each other through thick and thin.

Rebecca "Becca" Fisher (Jewel Staite)

Becca, also 13, is the much-flustered best friend of Tucker and is experiencing the same disillusionment with eighth grade. Her new best friend is Christine, someone who Becca sees as an easier person than Tucker to confide in about the things that are starting to matter (namely boys). Becca also faces ridicule from her bossy and stuck-up sister Ellen and carries a secret crush on the local pizza maker, Gooch.

Miles Vaughn (Theodore Borders)

Miles is Tucker's new best friend and starts the eighth grade year off as his constant companion. He often acts as the voice of reason in his relationship with Tucker, often bringing Tucker back down to the ground when Tucker allow his flights of fancy to get the better of him.

Christine "Chris" Harrison (Asia Vieira)

Christine is Becca's new best friend and often finds herself in the middle of Becca's schemes and troubles. She serves as a source of companionship and most importantly a listener, someone Becca can confide in during their ever-changing world. Christine is the owner of the dubiously named Steve, a female dog.

Horace James (Ricky Mabe)

Horace is Tucker's long-suffering brother. He is often the butt of Tucker's jokes and pranks, but holds a great deal of respect for his older brother. He is known for capturing all on his video camera, sometimes using the footage to his advantage as blackmail against Tucker. He is very much the typical annoying little brother.

Ellen Fisher

Played by both Rachel Blanchard (ep. 1-4) and Robin Brûlé. Ellen is Becca's domineering, self-centered older sister. She has no real respect for anyone other than herself and (arguably) her boyfriend Ryan. Ellen is often a source of pain and discomfort for her younger sister.
