One of My Favorite TV Shows from Way Back

Back in the day (new­ly mar­ried) the DH and I used to watch a lot of the dis­cov­ery chan­nel. One of the most charm­ing shows was The Secret Life of Machines.

Every­day items like vac­u­um clean­ers, wash­ing machines, and quartz watch­es explained by decon­struc­tion and wacky lit­tle ani­ma­tions. A lit­tle like the David Macaulay books.

The full 18 episodes of the Secret Life of Machines is now avail­able online at The Secret Life of Machines web­site. Also be sure to fol­low the link to Oth­er Hunkin Sites for more car­toony good­ness from the creator.

BTW: there’s a cool site for the David Macaulay’s The Way Things Work book as well. Love those mastodons!
