One of the storyboard artists over on Deviant Art recently dropped this comment on their page. Apparently “Read it and Weep” was actually “Reading Rainbow” before it’s full development cycle was completed.
And the quote:
I have seen a lot of funny fandom comments about how the title should have been “Reading Rainbow”. Apparently that actually WAS the working title early on–don’t know why they didn’t keep it but I assume it has something to do with the rights to the actual show.
Confound this legal nonsense! That would have been glorious!
At least they have us to PMV the hell out of it. I’ve seen at least 10 “Reading Rainbow” videos since the new episode, and a few before it!
