With the demise of after-school television programs and Saturday morning cartoons, kids don't get references to historically significant television content. There should be a video compilation for these. (Once upon a time, this might have been a DVD Boxed-Set. Today, it'd be a Youtube channel or Netflix special).

In it would be snippets to help educate children about things like:

* Making a radio from a coconut (Gilligan's Island) * Jump the shark (the actual Happy Day's episodes) * Kill the Rabbit (and other clips from Bugs Bunny)

The intent wouldn't be full episodes of old TV shows, but just enough of a set of clips that would teach about them and help younger generations better understand what "3 hour tour" meant in popular culture.

       Sad that it only took 19 years and one month for my first post.
