Episodes[edit | edit source]
The first episode of Originals, The Internet and You, was uploaded on July 22, 2016, and had a runtime of 31 minutes, making it the longest Originals episode. The episode focuses on Abraham Ethernet (Scott Wozniak) and Net-Meister 4089 (Will Kanwischer), who explore the various websites and locations of the Internet, while meeting up with other characters, such as Terry Lesler, Copy Paste Repeat, Dr. USB, Captain Dial Up, among others.
The episode was initially written by Scott Wozniak and Will Kanwischer as a 10-minute long edutainment video about the Internet for an assignement received in an AP Literature class. Eventually, the project evolved into "it's own obscure, little [video]", due to the deadline of the assignement not allowing Wozniak and Kanwischer to make it what they wanted it to be.
It can be argued that The Internet and You is one of the videos on the Scott The Woz YouTube channel with the largest legacy, with multiple official pieces of merchandise being sold during charity events, most notably a release of the video on VHS.
