Disappearance & RediscoveryEdit

In 2006, Crop Pinball Studios took over production of BrainPOP. Two episodes in season 5 were going to be about Oprah Winfrey and Marie Curie. So Crop Pinball destroyed the "Famous Women" episode, and it was never seen again.

Kenna Kay, who worked at Nickelodeon, discovered many older, but now removed episodes of BrainPOP (including "Famous Women") in May 2012.

Mr Fitch, a website dedicated to learning, still has the original video at this link.

The looks of Tim can be found in the old version of Harlem Renaissance.
