That`s one way an old man can make a little girl happy without being creepy.

Kinda.

that`s not how they make `em anymore. Doesn`t anyone watch `How it`s made`. And the music sucked

Aw snap. I remember seeing this when I was a little kid. On Mr. Rodgers or Sesame Street or something. I bet it involved a lot less human interaction with the machines now a days. Probably just one guy, sitting there idly watching the crayons go by, looking for broken ones the computer MIGHT have missed. He sleeps all day, actually. But he`s just been with the company so damn long, they don`t have the heart to fire him.

I liked it, but I was hoping it was going to be a joke (like that cartoon that shows how sno-cones are made).

"What do you get when you mix hot wax, colored pigments, and the magic of the Crayola brand? Answer: The most colorful stop in town and one of the only places in the world to see Crayola Crayons made the same way that they have been since 1903."

Yey, crayons!

"good ole Fred Rodgers.

This video really shows the times. now everything in the factory is automated. "

---------------------------------------

Actually, the process is still very similar, turn on the Discovery Channel some day and look for "How It`s Made", don`t know if it runs in the U.S, there`s a show about crayons and a lot of it is similar.

"omg! i saw this when it first showed on tv when i was little, it was on wttw i think..."
---------------------------------------

Doubtful. It looks as if it came from the 70`s at the latest....And if you`re born in the 90`s, as your I-A-B age group says you are....I doubt you saw it "when it first showed on tv". You probab...definitely caught a re-run.

Did anyone else notice the extremely well drawn butterfly that the little girl was coloring at the beginning. How can a 5 year old draw something like that? Or color in between the lines?

My boyfriend said to me once that the different colours taste nice, like pink and stuff. I tried a teensy bit of one but tbh I think he just liked eating crayolas.

I started watching this and my fiance was sitting across the room and only heard the music and said, "Is that the clip about crayon making from sesame street?" He`s freakin` sick, I swear! I don`t know how he can remember stuff like that, but not what I told him two hours ago about my day... UGH!
