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.
