Not to be confused with Total Eclipse of the Sun
Total Eclipse of the Sunspot is the first half of the thirtieth episode of Ready Jet Go!.
While Mindy, Jet, Sean, and Sydney are trying to use a solar panel to improve their energy efficiency, they notice that Sunspot is acting strange. It turns out that Sunspot was aware of an impending eclipse and was trying to alert the kids to the fact that the Sun would be darkened for a while.
A solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. It's important not to look directly at the Sun during an eclipse, but you can watch it through the use of a box viewer.
- This episode was made to tie in with the solar eclipse that occurred on August 21, 2017. This episode was aired roughly about a week before the eclipse.
- The episode title is a parody of the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler, as well as the phrase "Total eclipse of the sun".
- A special Amy Mainzer segment aired between this episode and Sean's Year in Space that discussed solar eclipses and what you can do to protect your eyes.
- Sunspot apparently says "no" in this episode.
