"The History of Television" is episode 17 of season 1 of Glove and Boots.


Mario and Fafa explain the history of television to Gorilla.


The video starts off with the usual intro and cuts to Gorilla making a sketch resembling the "vitameatavegamin" from I Love Lucy, although Gorilla never saw the series, because he doesn't watch TV. And so, Fafa decides to show Gorilla the shows he's missed over the past 60 years. He tells Mario to get his Rod Serling outfit. And Mario starts with a parody of the Twilight Zone intro. Then they continue with...

  • Through the whole video there were annotations/easter eggs linking to certain videos pertaining to the show (e.g. Jersey Shore).
  • This time there was no picture in the background since the picture has been blocked by the "vitameatavegamin" drawing in front of it.
  • The ending tag has Gorilla, as the subscribe picture, pretending to be Magmun P.I.
