Edison’s Greatest Invention, Or, If You Use Your Head You’ll Always Win


 

Thanks to regular commenter Anthony Strand for pointing out one of the most elaborate entries in the familiar YouTube genre, the re-enactment of a title sequence that the creators grew up watching. This one uses the intro from the ’80s CBC/Nelvana kids’ show The Edison Twins, where nerdy kids used their scientific abilities to solve mysteries and make gadgets out of everyday objects (before The A-Team and MacGyver were doing it). It didn’t manage to convince us that science was fun, but it did produce a memorable title sequence, which has now been re-created through the scientific miracle of computers and video equipment.

Here is the original:

And here is the re-enactment:

I don’t know about you, but I think re-enacting old title sequences is much healthier than re-enacting the Civil War. More fun, too.

  1. Edison Twins is a show I think I would like to see on DVD. Or maybe I just have a thing for canadian melo-drama.
