Cool Videos: Gritty Reboots' PBS: The Movie is like The Avengers meets PBS

The folks at Gritty Reboots have created another hybrid trailer, this time tackling the clever angle of bridging PBS "superheroes" with an THE AVENGERS-style storyline. You'll recognize many familiar "characters," such as Mr. Rogers, Carl Sagan, Bob Ross, and Bill Nye, all teaming up to save the world from reality TV and the thirst for real knowledge. It's a fun and original concept, perhaps a little on the "preachy" side, but that's all right. Either way you slice it, it's a well-made video and pretty cool overall.

Get your learnin' on:

Here's the "mission statement" for the video:

To be blunt: Science, technology, and education are important to us. But we live in a world where the little news we hear of schools, research, and the arts is when they're laying their heads on the chopping block. We live in a world where celebrity and "reality" entertainment is winning the war for our attention. Though this may just seem like it's playing off a funny trope, we do need superheroes in our world. Super men, women (and puppets), like those actualized by PBS, who inspire young generations to be scientists, teachers, and artists. But those heroes will not appear unless we create them.

Pretty cool.
I'll think about this whenever the History Channel has a show about ancient aliens.

"I thought they were dead."

Those would be my Avengers if superheroes were real. Them, and LeVar Burton.
