What it’s all about:
December 16, 1960. Vice President Richard M. Nixon, having lost the recent election to Joe Kennedy’s kid, slips out of Washington, DC and into an alternate dimension. Based on true events, two Time vectors intersect above New York City. United Airlines Flight 826 is minutes away from landing at New York’s Idlewild Airport, while TWA Flight 266 heads for LaGuardia, when holiday plans are abruptly cancelled when the two airliners merge in space and Time.
But it was almost Christmas, and no one wants sad TV, so the final Ike and Mamie Eisenhower Christmas Special with Perry Como goes on as scheduled. All seems right with the world, despite something going weirdly wrong with Time. The Cold War was closing the books on planet Earth, when Aunt Charlotte—in sensible shoes—meets Nixon aboard the last of the overnight sleeper trains, wherein they find love and set out to save humanity with help from Charlotte’s six-year-old nephew, Muzzy, who explores the insanely amusing possibilities of messing with Time. There might be a quiz, but cheating is encouraged.
