Here's a Sesame Street classic. I remember this from when I was a kid; we watched it a few times with our kids Monday morning. The sheer amount of knowledge embodied in this whole process is mesmerizing.
And of course, here's Leonard E. Read's classic essay, always worth a re-read.
That segment is literally the reason I work in manufacturing today. I used to ask to watch it over and over again.
Used to love that one as a kid, particularly the parts with the orange stuff getting scraped off. I still enjoy shows like How It's Made and Factory Made, though my partner has almost zero interest so I mostly watch without her.
Interesting to watch it and see how many steps basically require a human being to grab a handful of crayons and move them to another machine. Basically just doing the work of a specialized conveyor belt (without the big capital cost).
