The Avengers…PBS-Style!


I wish the impersonations were a tiny bit better – even I could probably do a more accurate Mr. Rogers voice – but the joy of seeing a superhero team of Carl Sagan, Bob Ross, Fred Rogers and Bill Nye in action cannot be denied. Especially since 3/4 of them are no longer with us in any other capacity.

My one quibble is that this would have been funnier last year with Mitt Romney as the bad guy – possibly secretly allied with a turncoat Big Bird? – rather than the generic villain-in-suit we get. But then 53% of the audience might not have supported it no matter what.

Watch after the jump.
