    I learned there was also a live-action Planet of the Apes TV show. I saw it on El Rey.

    I remember seeing some of it on SciFi in the 90s and it was on Hulu a few years back. I miss seeing animation on channels like Sci-fi, that weren't kids channels.

    I just learned about the Hot Wheels cartoon from the 60s myself, and its sort of connection to later cartoons. I didn't even know the toyline was that old.

    I learned that Hulu's uploads of Rugrats sound so terrible, that some lines sound barely audible (at best), and the end credits theme sounds un-balanced.

    I learned that in the early 90s Disney animated series recorded a bunch of music, and then cut those recordings to work in an episode. Recess was their first show to use synchronized music.

    Truth or Consequences, NM, is the only city in America named after a game show.

    In 1950, Ralph Edwards, host of the NBC radio quiz show Truth or Consequences, announced a contest where they would host the 10th anniversary episode in the first city that changed its name to "Truth or Consequences." The winning town was a small New Mexico community of less than 5,000 people originally named Hot Springs.

    Edwards would visit that town once a year for the next fifty years.

    You would know that if you were an avid watcher of any of those shows. Part of the Disney Afternoon experience was getting used to the same music cues happening every time something eventful took place on a show.

    I learned that the 1999 Lego Happy Meals actually didn't mark the first time McDonald's sold Lego.

    I was of age for the 1989 set. Legos were some of the best toys McDonalds gave out, because they could be anything.
