internet, internet, tell me a thing

The other day I proposed a children’s cartoon to Sylvia, in the style of those early 80s classics Superbook and Inspector Gadget, except it’s a bunch of kids solving mysteries not with a high-tech / magic book but a 4G-enabled tablet. They come across some puzzle or petty crime that can only be solved by referencing a bit of historical or scientific trivia. Then one of the kids says, “Internet, Internet, tell me a thing” and looks it up on the tablet.

Each episode would be about seven minutes.
