I find this to be v. Rocky & Bullwinkle for some reason.
yeah you're so right, total bullwinkle vibe! the professor peabody wayback machine intro ?? when i think about it now, that was probably the first time I ever saw the most hackneyed cartoon device ever -- the too fast, shoddily animated, deliberately convoluting science explanation. but like many things, i think it's safe to say TED'S GONNA PULL IT OFFFF. (note lines, brain, hat, more lines, bubbles, muscles, all looking VERY SCIENTIFIC!)
