NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Encyclopedia was a children's program on HBO co-produced with Children's Television Workshop, the creators of Sesame Street.

The episode about the letter G might feature glass, gladiators, and gondolas; the H episode might feature heiroglyphics, horses, or Halloween.
