The Time Coupe, also known as simply the Time Machine, is a spherical interdimensional vehicle.


The Time Coupe is Gyro Gearloose's most enduring time machine. He has made numerous adjustments to it over the year, once turning it into a teleporting vehicle rather than a simple time machine.[1] The machine is unfortunately prone to breaking down; in 1987, Donald Duck and his nephews were stuck travelling uncontrollably through time for months.[2] Ever since, Gyro has kept the machine his garage, only using it sparingly.

Behind the scenes

The Time Coupe was created in the 1986 story Dirk the Dinosaur, although its most enduring look debuted in The Viking Voyage the next year.
