I won't tell you exactly how old I was when I finally got the 'Fargo North: Decoder" joke, but let's just say that this awesome show was long off the air and it came to me while I was driving. Nice to see it here to entertain, inform and freak out a whole new generation
Up in the sky! It's Letterman!
What a blast from the past! Electric Company made such a contribution to my love of reading and learning. It was so far ahead of its time in the 70s...and who knew Morgan Freeman would go from Electric Company to a sucessful movie career?
Absolutely Awesome Show
I LOVED this when I was a kid. Sesame Street was sooo boring to me as a kid even though I watched every episode, but the Electric Company was the one that got me off the sofa and dancing as I learned! As another poster said, Skip BARNEY and put this on for your kids!
