| Yes, the people at Sesame Workshop do keep the old memories alive. On April 13, word came out that Season 1 of The Electric Company will indeed be released on DVD sometime in 2006. And that's just the beginning. |
YES!!! I can't tell you how excited I am about this news. I taped a few episodes off Noggin a few years back, and the show was just as great as I remembered it. It holds up extremely well, and there's lots of humor that adults will catch. "Love...Of...Chair..."
Hopefully, since most of the cast still seems to be around, we'll see some juicy extras; and hopefully even the big-namers Rita Moreno, Morgan Freeman, and Bill Cosby would want to participate. By the way, I never realized that Gene Wilder was the voice of Letterman, and that Irene Cara was one of the Short Circus kids!
I don't recall seeing anything posted here about this, so apologies if this is old news. The best that I would have hoped for, if anything, would have been a compilation of some of the best-known bits. But, SEASON SETS??? Crazy.
