Some more Friday fun: How many planets?

This video is from the new kids' CD and DVD by They Might Be Giants, Here Comes Science. This and its predecessors Here Come the 123s and Here Come the ABCs are on heavy rotation in my household. "Ceres, Pallas, Vesta, and a bunch of other stuff" -- I love it. If only they hadn't slipped up and referred to the International "Astrological" (sic) Union in the introduction...

ut I think this is my favorite video and song from the album: "Put it to the Test." It's catchy and I love the throwback Nintendo-style graphics.
