Bob painting a forest on fire killed me.

It's worth watching to the end just for the parody Joker line.

Spider-man from The Electric Company is sitting by his phone like all "WTF?"

...would it have killed them to say "people" instead of "men"?

Okay, as a non-American, I think I recognised Mr. Rogers and Carl Sagan. Can anyone clue me in who the other two were? Very funny, though - thanks.

And if that's not enough information:
Robert Norman "Bob" Ross (October 29, 1942 – July 4, 1995) was an American painter, art instructor, and television host, best known as the creator and host of The Joy of Painting, a television program that has appeared for more than a decade on PBS in the United States and in Europe;
And an epic previous thread tells you everything you want to know about Bill Nye, the Science Guy.

They should have included Julia Childs as well.

"I have an army!"
"We have a Julia. Are they hungry?"

That's not the quote. When you can parody a line by changing a single consonant, you're allowed to do so.

"We have a Julia."

JULIA MASH!

This makes me happy.

It's actually a pretty good evoking of Sagan without resorting to the tired "beelyuns and beelyuns" crutch so beloved of hack comedians.

Also brilliant: "Libaries."

Preferably played by Dan Aykroyd.

The female part's a little underwritten.

Bingo.

Speaking as a PBS child, I know this video was supposed to be silly, but it still gave me the chills.

Huh. In college I worked as a barista with the "do we even use trains anymore?" woman. She used to make me laugh all shift long.

Julia wouldn't be the mean green with anger management issues. Considering her former involvement with the OSS, she's a straight up analogue for the Black Widow role.
