(a young professor offers quick, informative facts); and "Tube Dweller's" (follows the antics of maintenance men Bob and Bob as they dawdle behind your screen).

New segments include: "Cafeteria," a musical take on conversations that take place on a school cafeteria line; "What's the Diff?," an animation segment that challenges kids to tell two very similar-looking "snapshots" apart; and "Find Out Why," an animated segment hosted by "The Lion King's" Timon and Pumbaa, which explains a variety of scientific occurrences and commonplace technologies, including rain, sneezing, static electricity, wind, airplane flight, etc.
