Nostalgia Saturday

I was an Electric Company kid. I loved and watched Sesame Street too, but when I look back on it I think I probably watched the Electric Company throughout a much longer period of my childhood and I even remember watching it in school during inside recess.

Anyhoo... the other night I watched a little one hour documentary that I recorded on PBS. It was called The Electric Company's Greatest Hits and while watching this show I laughed and cried and sang along to all the old songs that I hadn't thought of for so long, but are so embedded in my brain there is no way I could ever have forgotten them.

I'm pasting a few of them here just in case any of you were Electric Company kids like I was and I hope you enjoy them as much as I always have.

I loved that show. I must see that special.

Tom Lehere is actually one of my most favorite entertainers from long ago. He was a mathematician that taught at MIT and Harvard, and entertained friends with his made up songs on the piano. It turned into a career for him.

They've got episodes up on Hulu now, which I think is just tons of fun :)

Did you ever see the Family Guy where Peter recalled his job at the Electric Company? LOL.

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be the gorgeous Asian woman with the long straight beautiful hair.
