    I remember shoving about 10 saltines in my mouth and trying to whistle.

    Spider-Man rocked.....could not wait for the moment he was on.

    His costume looked better than the one CBS had on their show in the late 70's.

    I loved the Electric Company! Bill Cosby and Rita Moreno were on there too!

    I used to watch another show on PBS around that time too, I believe it was called Powerhouse, and it was about a group of kid detectives. I want that on DVD too.

    Ooh, and 3-2-1 Contact! Wherever there's trouble, we're there on the double...we're the bloodhound gang.

    Also need Read All About It on DVD...that would be the topz!!!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Hey, check out this photo of Cosby, which I believe is a screen shot from an episode of The Electric Company. I have no idea why this helmet was chosen, but ain't she a beauty?!

    The Electric Company was pretty much the extent of my exposure to African-Americans until I was old enough to follow the late-'80s Reds. Such is/was life in the lily-white suburbs.

    Zoom is still on. They brought it back about 5 or 6 years ago.

    I watched a lot of Capt. Kangaroo and Uncle Al, too creek.


    I was on the Uncle Al show on my birthday and got to do the Uncle Al twist. I thought I was a star.

    While we're strollling down the memory lane of PBS, anyone recall Villa Allegre?

    As long as we are going down memory lane. This is a local Los Angeles show, so most here will probably not be familiar with it:

    H-O-B-O K-E-Double L-Y
    Hobo Kelly, sure and be-gor-ah 'tis I!
    Come on along to Hobo Junction
    Where fun happens ev'ry minute
    It's a mythical, magical kind of place...

    Racial stereotyping the whole family could enjoy.
