Talk:How Many Planets?

From This Might Be A Wiki

Check this out[edit]

Look right underneath puppet Flansburgh...that's the kid from the planets video in the image...what's going on??? --Duke33 22:18, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Maybe it's an easter egg? --WhatIsThatThing 23:15, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Can I start an elaborate conspiracy theory? :D I'm putting my money on DVD exclusive. --Luke 23:17, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

So, the kid's on the CD/DVD packaging as well. I'm wondering if perhaps they had a few other non-number songs like Roy G. Biv that got pulled in the final tracklisting? Maybe they intended for it to be on originally...--Duke33 01:07, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

My money's on it being on the next children's DVD... the science one. Akagi 01:17, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Looks like Akagi wins. -- Jason DeLima - ! - 22:28, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Here Comes Science[edit]

Thing - I reverted your edits, because at least at this point, i don't think we have a rock-solid confirmation that this will be on Here Comes Science. It's a good bet, but we don't have proof at this point, unless you can point to something definite. --Duke33 21:10, 18 May 2009 (UTC)


"Don't forget about Pluto Eris And a bunch of other stuff" Looks like the Giants have chosen wisely to stay neutral and keep out of the "Is Pluto A Planet or Dwarf Planet" controversy.

Notice how the second time round only includes the planets. Pluto's not there, for a pretty good reason - doing otherwise wouldn't be accurate. ~ blitzente (talk) 10:04, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Either it's the scientific version of Letter / Not A Letter (we'll see when we see a video), or it's Them asking if there really is a definitive answer to the How Many Planets question, or rather if they care to know the answer-- in other words opting not to fall into the trap of scientists' councils' categorizations of what qualifies certain rock masses as planets. Or I'm spouting nonsense. ~ magbatz 10:15, 6 September 2009 (UTC)


Anybody with the DVD, can you take a screenshot of Jupiter? -- Jason DeLima - ! - 01:48, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Other non-planet things[edit]

How awesome of TMBG to include stuff like Ceres, Pallas and Vesta (and a bunch of other stuff)! Now more kids will know about these things. -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")


It occurred to me that the section for Venus could be deliberately referring back to "For Science", which also includes an operatic female voice in the background (though I think it might have been a synthesized voice on the '80s song). This is highly appropriate for a song on Here Comes Science. :-) --MisterMe (talk) 15:17, 11 November 2014 (EST)

venus is commonly associated with femininity - the astrological sign for venus is the same as the female sign ♀ --Ncrecc (talk) 18:33, 8 August 2022 (EDT)
