Another theory that I heard was that it was intended to reassure kids that people were not making bombs, since we were in a cold war, not an actual war at the time.  But by 1996, when that week had its last airing, it was, unfortunately, no longer appropriate, since people really were making bombs.

Not sure what you mean by that.  The 1980's had the "arms race", in which countries most certainly did build up their arsenals.  In 1996, the U.S. wasn't involved in any war to speak of, but of course the arsenals still existed.

I know it's been a while since this thread began....

Even though the topic evolved a bit, the original topic here was Episode 1041 with Mabel Mercer. Just wanted to share a link for this episode which I finally got to today...

Thnx for adding this episode, Tim. I certainly hope this'll be one FRC eventually plans on releasing soon.

She was also in 1063.

Again, keep up the good work!
