Abstract: This paper deals with the numerical content of Picard's Theorem. Two classically equivalent versions of this theorem are proved which are distinct from a computational point of view. The proofs are elementary, and constructive in the sense of Bishop. A Brouwerian counterexample is given to the original version of the theorem.
