This is a PBS Kids show. The episode is called “The Learner." I guess check your local listings.

Well, I recorded this for the hell of it. The episode is actually called "The Lernerer." The show is basically about words, their meaning, and usage-right up Al's alley. This episode was about adding wrong/extra suffixes to words as it told a story about the villain(Al) stealing a diamond brain. It was amusing for a younger school kid's show. The credits have Al credited as just Al Yankovic instead of "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Yeah, definitely an enjoyable show to watch. It was kind of amusing with the story of Al's villain stealing the diamond brain, when thinking about everything with Al's Brain. Al did a great job with the voice-overs. Really continuing the intensity of the chase. Fun show.

I thought it was cute. I love hearing Al's laugh.
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

Loved the way he delivered the lines about being defeated-ed so easily-ly. :D

Just did a search for this on my channel guide. The episode listed after those one is called, "I Think I'm a Clone Now." Methinks someone in Word Girl land is a fan.
