The wait is over: Episode 1 of LearningTown is here! All the blood, sweat, tears, puppets, potato chips, funny costumes, and countless hours* of prep, filming, and music production come down to two things: WATCH IT and SHARE IT! (Same goes for the other 9 episodes when they come out, every Tuesday.) You can also visit this post on the Geek and Sundry blog for some of the behind-the-scenes story (WARNING: somewhat warm and fuzzy)
Oh, and WATCH IT and SHARE IT!…and Like it, and Comment on it, and everything else one can do on YouTube. It all helps. A lot. Not sure how all that stuff on YouTube works?
We’ve also prepared a short LearningTown FAQ, which will be informative whether you’re a YouTube addict, or if you didn’t know before now that it wasn’t spelled “YOOTOOB”.
And if after viewing Episode 1 you just can’t get enough of LearningTown, here are a few other tidbits to tide you over until Episode 2 arrives (next Tuesday!)

p.s. – WATCH IT AND SHARE IT!
*the hours are in fact countable, but it’s tiring to think of how many it actually has been
The first episode is fantastic!
I look forward to the episodes where I don’t see the music videos before hand 🙂
Journeying into the unknown with P&S is one of my favorite things to do.
For a first episode it really was awesome! P&S are always fun to watch.
First episodes usually get bogged down with introductions or exposition. You managed to set up the protagonists the antagonists and a couple side characters while still setting up the rest of the series including a musical number in under 8 minutes… credits included.
It did exactly what a first episode needs to with clean execution.
First impressions count for quite a lot and I just wanna say. you have my attention.
It’s in McSweeneys, bitches!!
Looking forward to more…
