More You Tube Fun

All the Sesame Street talk yesterday got me nostalgic and I wanted to see if there were videos from two of my other most favoritest kid shows.

I hit the jackpot.

I always dug th-is this.

I wish they had the one that had "It's the plummah and I've come to fix the sink!"

I think this show is why I learned to read, well, when I was 4. I was such a good reader, in first grade they sent me to second grade for reading class. I quit when Mrs. Massey told me if I was too shy to read out loud (in front of the big 2nd graders) I shouldn't be there. So, for the embarrassment she caused me, I never went back. Seems to be the story of my life.

Wish I could find some clips of "Zoom." Now THERE was a show. I wanted nothing more than to be a Zoom kid and have the rugby shirt and make paper mache.

Hey Sista:

In February they released the best of The Electric Company on a DVD box set and it is awesome! I got it off Amazon. It's like being 7 years old again.

Some years ago, they were showing them on Noggin (before our regular cable carried it) and they had a preview week and they showed a bunch of them and I taped them. My older kids were a lot younger then and they LOVED the EC, bad, dated graphics and all, they thought it was great. Thanks for that heads up. I must have that.

The best thing they ever had on ZOOM was the stained-glass window cookies they made. I always wanted to make those.

also featuring a VERY young Morgan Freeman as "Easy Reader", and Rita Moreno too (she's the one yelling "hey You Guys" at the beginning).

I keep forgetting how old i am. I remember watching this in NYC, when I was 2. TWO!!
