Herbie Popnecker; Professor Flipdome; Pincus Popnecker; Mrs. Popnecker; Josephine, Napoleon Bonaparte
Herbie, a mortal, is not supposed to be getting magical lollipops from the Unknown. To get rid of him, Herbie is slipped a time lollipop that does not require a grandfather clock, but unknown to him, it's a one-way time lollipop. When Herbie goes back in time to Napoleon, it takes some ingenuity and patience to get back.
Herbie's father wants to be president of the Men's Club, and fund-raising looks like the way to get there. Herbie helps him set up a concession to sell fake pirate gold at the town charity fair, but needs to go back in time to get real gold when the fake gold does not sell.
