Not your mama's Electric Company

I am the first generation of kids that had the joy of PBS's children's educational programming. Seasame Street, Mr. Rogers and Zoom are all staples of my childhood. My own children have enjoyed their own PBS children's shows including WordGirl, Super Why and Fetch with Ruff Ruffman. A few years ago we even went to a local mall to meet the cast.

But nothing is really beating the new Electric Company. Sassy, smart and fun, I am thoroughly enjoying watching my 5-year-old as she absorbes the repetitive language lessons.

Plus, for this dance, they are wearing fashions from when I watched the original. Gotta love the merging of the eras.

So everyone now, slide and drop. Slide and drop.

This is cool. Truly.

My fave childhood shows were Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. Guess I was into anime from way back. ;-)

I'm just a wee bit older than you, so I missed the first PBS programming. I saw some of it babysitting younger kids in my building, though. I think Sesame Street entered the scene when I was 11 or 12.

Best show of our childhood. I've actually not seen the resurrection yet. I desperately need to figure out the 800 channel television monster in the living room. I would MUCH prefer this to iCarly. Really.
Nice to have the reference.
