Space Shuttle Launch Remote Control Cornballs

Clip from the episode in which the babies watch footage of a NASA Space Shuttle launch and space flight.

The babies keep changing the channel one day when Baby Bunsen and Baby Beaker arrive with a new invention, a special kind of remote control. The Babies use this control, and imagine themselves in their favorite programs, but their favorite shows keep getting mixed up.
