Imagine if PBS created its own Avengers by teaming up superheroes from our childhood. I'm not talking about Iron Man or Thor but Carl Sagan, Mister Rogers and Bill Nye. Real superheroes. This fantastic short imagines the trio teaming up with Bob Ross to form the PBS Avengers who want to save us from brain shrinking reality TV and watch the world... learn.

Produced by Cinesaurus, PBS: The Movie is a wonderful parody of The Avengers that really speaks to how important Sagan, Rogers, Ross and Nye once were to us. They helped kids learn! They helped kids wonder! They helped kids dream of becoming scientists and astronauts and good people.

Today? The Kardashians and Honey Boo Boo characters of reality TV are destroying their progress by shrinking our brains to raisins. The PBS Avengers need to stop them. I would watch the heck out of this movie. [GrittyReboots via BoingBoing]
