Smile Time: An Auto-Tuned Walk Through Reading Rainbow’s History

By Arturo R. García

Even if you’re not a fan of auto-tune, what stands out the most about this video, commissioned by PBS Digital Studios, is how well it showcases the impressive history behind Reading Rainbow: 23 years, 155 episodes, all hosted and produced by LeVar Burton.

So, in that light, to see the show get the same kind of homage afforded to public broadcasting stalwarts like Fred Rogers, Julia Child and Bob Ross is a welcome show of respect from PBS.

And, in an extra bit of good news, it turns out that Burton has revived the show as a free app through his own multimedia company, RRKidz.
