I have long been a fan of They Might be Giants having discovered them with their third album “Flood”.

In fact I saw the two Johns on the “flood” tour back in the early 90s when the played Le Rox, a famous goth club in Adelaide no longer in existance. In my late teens and goth phase (yes I wore Doc Martens and tartan skirts and had sticky-up-black hair) I saw many great bands here and also had the dubious honor of falling down the steep stairs.

Many years later, a friend tipped me off to this great clip from a full length DVD by The Giants. It’s an animated project for kids, promoting science.

Here’s a preview from their kids’ series which includes “Science is Real” and “Kids Go!“.

Watch the previews below for some fun TMBG!

And “Science is Real”

    Yeah, I’ve loved TMBG from way back.

    My kids (5 & 3) have the three here-comes-series DVD/CD’s and watch / listen to them all the time. Science is the favourite, with the 123s and ABC’s a close second.

  • Hi Johnny, you didn’t leave any scientific evidence to support your reasons for being against vaccination/vaccines. I would be happy to look at what you have come across. Thanks for your comment.

  • I love science too. I’ve loved TMBG since the eighties… Also you might find some of them are against vaccines (like me) for scientific reasons.

    Got the CD/DVD from my sister for my 43rd Birthday. I’m also a bit TMBG fan, and very happy to have music I can enjoy playing in the truck when we travel with the kids! John & John rock!

  • Love the beginning of “I Am a Paleontologist”! Fossils…dinosaur bones…evolution…mass extinction…
