Putt-Putt Travels Through Time is a point-and-click adventure game developed by Humongous Entertainment in 1997. It is the fourth game in the Putt-Putt series. Infogrames later re-packaged this game in a bundle with Putt-Putt and Pep's Balloon-O-Rama in 1999. It was, over a decade later, ported to iOS by Nimbus Games, Inc. on August 14, 2012. A Lite (demo) version was released a week later.

In this game, Putt-Putt must travel through time to retrieve his calculator, history report, lunchbox, and Pep. He travels through four time periods: age of the dinosaurs, medieval times, wild west, and the future. It is also the last game to feature Jason Ellefson as the voice of Putt-Putt.


The game begins with Putt-Putt packing his new school supplies. Putt-Putt is excited to show Mr. Firebird his history report, calculator, and Smokey the Fire Engine lunchbox before school starts. He wakes up Pep, brings his coin, and heads down the road to Mr. Firebird's Lab. He explains about his new Time Portal invention, which allows the past and future to be seen without actually traveling there. After Putt-Putt takes out his things, Mr. Firebird attempts to start the machine. After failing, he realizes he needs a coin to start the machine, and he is fresh out. Putt-Putt offers the coin, and Mr. Firebird starts the machine.

However, the Time Portal goes haywire (out of control) and opens up. It sucks Putt-Putt's objects and Pep into time. A panicked Mr. Firebird tells Putt-Putt of the risk of being sucked into time unless the portal is shut closed for sure. Putt-Putt assures him that he will gather his things soon, and enters the Time Portal. Putt-Putt must retrieve his lost things in order for Mr. Firebird to close the portal for good.

Putt-Putt returns to the present his things and Pep, and Mr. Firebird closes the portal for good. Putt-Putt tells Mr. Firebird that he likes time traveling. Mr. Firebird was glad that Putt-Putt had fun while time traveling, but then tells Putt-Putt that he's going to be late for school unless he hurries. Putt-Putt tells him that he's right, and he will show him his school supplies later. At school, Putt-Putt shares the news by telling everyone about time traveling.


Putt-Putt Travel Through Time, like other Humongous Entertainment games, is a point-and-click adventure game. The player takes control of Putt-Putt with the goal of rescuing Pep and his lost school supplies and having fun along the way. The game is played by using the mouse to interact with the environment. By clicking on various areas called Click Points, the player can collect items, talk with other characters, and watch funny animations. Items are collected to help the player solve puzzles. The game contains four different areas to explore: the Age of the Dinosaurs, Medieval Times, Wild West, and the Future. These areas are joined in the middle by the Time Portal and Cartown.
