There is something funny in the episode where they talk about making music. Levar visits a studio(I think were they recorded the theme song), and the guy there is showing off a Fairlight sampler(which uses an Apple IIe computer). The camera gets a shot of the monitor, which is dsplaying a list of sounds. One of them is “FART”. This was back when you couldn’t say fart on tv for some stupid reason.
Reading Rainbow aired from 1983 to 2006 so I think it’s safe to include the 90s tag as well… I loved that show, and Bill Nye the Science Guy as well. This was back when REAL educational shows were on TV… not all this drama and reality crap we have now.
