Trivia: When the TV technician is talking to the children through the TV, he is sitting in front of a test card with a picture of an Indian. The Indian's expression changes each time we see it (mentioned on the DVD director's commentary).

Question: What is the purpose of the initial TV montage?

Answer: To me it never looked like a montage. It was just someone flipping through the channels (channel surfing) until they got to "TV Time" where they stayed to watch the commercial for the PleasanTVille marathon. People (especially before DVRs) sometimes just flip through the channels looking for something to watch, especially if you don't know what's playing on each channel.
