/r/gifsthatendtoosoon what about the wrapping and the boxing up? :-(
I got you covered.
And a similar video from Sesame Street: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoM0p02KGcM
That was so satisfying.. that voice, that music. r/oddlysatisfying
nothin odd about it, Mr Rogers is the shit, RIP.
Spoken like a true Yinzer.
Here's the actual video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmiRjmbnn8Q
After watching this, I still don't know how crayons are made.
You cover the panel with holes with orange goo and then it comes out all pencil like and throw it in the conveyor belt. Voila, crayons.
Wax is melted and dyed, then poured into a channel that has crayon-shaped holes at the bottom. Wax fills the holes and cools while traveling. After they cool, they’re pushed upward into plates that also have holes (the excess wax is likely melted down again and reused). These plates spin and dump the crayons onto a belt that leads to a labeling machine. After labeling they are transported to a packaging system.
I still have no fucking idea how crayons are made.
Wax goes in, color goes in, crayons come out. It's magic.
Wax goes in, crayons come out. You can’t explain that.
You could color it in though
Sesame Street has a better one tbh. This pales in comparison. Source: grew up watching Sesame Street in the days when it was good.
Mr Rogers also had one
Pour colored wax onto big rotating mold. Scrape excess off the top with a knife. Transfer cooled crayons into a separate carrier which transports the crayons to a conveyer belt.
It’s all sorcery man. Sorcery i tell ya.
Here's Mr. Rogers explaining how crayons are made! It's super relaxing to watch.
Thanks that was awesome. I was sad when it ended.
You're very welcome. It's one of my favorites.
Daniel Tiger's neighborhood has an episode at the crayon factory as well!
That's how I learned!
Amazing how much of that was done with human labor
The turning of the boxes on the conveyor belt was idly satisfying
I think Sesame Street had a similar video without narration. Thanks for the trip down memory lane
how wonderful of a job to be a musician for this show
Enjoyed watching this. Based on OP, I suspects most of the jobs seen here are now automated.
That was probably the most memorable mr. rogers episode for me. I haven’t even seen the video and I know exactly what it is
I can smell the crayons from here
-Views from a VW Jetta-
I thought the same thing
Maybe r/smellygifs ?
Edit: just realized it’s a real thing and it’s marked NSFW. I’m afraid to enter
Those crayons that fell back into the mold at the end... /r/mildlyirritating
Needs a groovy upbeat synth soundtrack.
Edit: The reference, what I consider the gold-standard of crayon-making childrens educational clips.
My thoughts exactly
Yes! This was one of my favorite clips from Sesame Street.
This is cool and all. But what if they want blue crayons?
Blue crayons are still made by hand for this reason
There are Marines frothing at the mouth and drooling all around me right now.
Came here for the Marine joke. Glad you beat me to it.
And you didn’t explain to him that that was glue coming out of their mouths?
Oh yeah this is the crayon 5000. Great machine.
Sesame Street from the 80s, It was one of my favorites as a child. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoM0p02KGcM
My 1,5 year old daughter would love to eat them all.
It is amazing how much money and effort are put into the production of crayons.
How can all that work go into a product and yet somewhere they drop the ball and else end up with Rosemary quality. If you are the guy that designs or operates these machines, that must be heartbreaking.
I want to lay on that piece with the pointy part of the crayons facing upward. It looks so comfortable
Is there a how it’s made sub?? I love this kind of stuff
I imagine that smells like... hot wax and machine oil
Where is the fleeb? You need the fleeb juice!
This seems like a really complicated way of showing that they pump hot wax into a mold and it sets in the shape of a crayon.
Gifs, videos, etc. that teach you something.
