Demonstration of English version (with commentary).

TV Works was created by Sonoran Blue.[3] The beta version was being developed for the Pippin Power Player prototype under the working title PipWorks.[4]

Version 1.0 was first released as TV Works: Paint Word Mail by Bandai Digital Entertainment with the launch of the Pippin Atmark special "Network set" (「ネットワークセット」) in Japan on March 28, 1996.[5] It included drivers for Apple StyleWriter I/II, 1200, 2200, and 2400 printers.

Version 2.0 was introduced on June 15, 1996 with the lower-priced base "Pippin Atmark body set" (「ピピン@アットマーク」「本体セット」). Version 2.1 updated the printer drivers with versions for the Color StyleWriter 1500 and 2500, which were backwards-compatible. Subsequent updates included POP mail support.[6]
