The conclusion considers two films that represent certain tendencies of popular-science films after 1918. These films are The Daily Dozen at the Zoo (1934) and “Bug Workout,” a YouTube video from 2014. Both films depict animals engaged in repetitive activities. These depictions of repetition are taken as emblems of a tendency toward repetition within the genre itself. Both films are also intended as gestures toward the considerable amount of research left to do on the history of popular-science films over the course of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
