LeVar Burton has recently made news across the internet by announcing his plan to reboot Reading Rainbow: the beloved educational children’s television show that ran on PBS from 1983-2006, encouraging kids to read through vivid stories in animated fantasy lands. Mr. Burton launched a Kickstarter campaign to revive Reading Rainbow, which has already exceeded its initial goal of $2 million.

Here’s a new Funny Or Die video starring Mr. Burton that reboots Reading Rainbow’s classic theme song, using dark humor to reveal the true power of books and generate increased awareness about reviving Reading Rainbow:
