Title: List of all of the Picture Picture "How things are made" segments?
Post by: PaulKTF on May 27, 2015, 12:02:36 PM
Hi Tim,

Thank you for all the work and effort you've put into the site!

Is there any chance you could have a special section of the site that chronologically lists all of the Picture Picture "How things are made" (or whatever) segments?

For example a simple single page with a list like this (I'm just making up the details here of course):

Episode 4485- How Peanut Butter is made
Episode 4892- How Teddy Bears are made.
Episode 4896- How sports balls are made.

You could even have the "Episode XXX" text link right to the individual episode page in the episode guide.

Would anyone else be interested in something like this? I just wanted to throw the idea out there.

I do like this idea. It's one that I'll keep in the back of my mind for a later time. Once I get through the episodes and the last few character pages, I'd like to start doing pages like this. I've also thought about a page detailing the many lessons taught through the OCS. Really, the possibilities are endless once the foundation of the site is set.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but what does OCS stand for?

Owl Correspondence School.

No such thing as a dumb question!   :)

Ah, okay! I assume Owl Correspondance School was something on MNR taught by X The Owl? Or is it something from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood? I don't recall it from MNR but then again my memory is not what it used to be.

It was on MRN, and it was classes that X the Owl was taking (I don't think he taught them).  It was intended to show the importance of lifelong education.

Okay. That reminds me of the classes that Daniel Tiger would go to with the other students... Man, I forgot all about those segments in the Land Of Make-Believe!

Except that X the Owl didn't go to an actual school, he got lessons on the mail, hence the term correspondence school.  The modern equivalent would be online classes.
