  1. Ahhh the Electric Company – someone else remembers it. We had one up here in Canada called the Friendly Giant – he was reaaaaallll popular. What about Romper Room? I was pissed cuz that Miss Whoever NEVER EVER saw me in Magic Mirror and I was waiting excited all the time.

  2. Oh yes! I loved Captain Kangaroo and spent most of my time on PBS. I also watched the original ZOOM. There was another show that had a couple of kids visiting a cabin type house out in the country but I can’t remember the name. Oh yes–HodgePodge Lodge! That’s it.

    I was an only child whose parents worked so I spent a lot of time alone. Since I also had various social problems, those shows helped me survive the early 70’s.

    How about Kukla, Fran and Ollie? I always liked the foreign films they would show. There was the Red Balloon and Pippi Longstocking. My favorite was a black and white Japanese movie called Skinny And Fatty. Anyone remember that one?

  3. The best part about the Electric Company was Spider-man and the French guy who kept painting the number of the day on people.

    I got my mother to buy me “Because a little bug went Ka-Chooo!” after Captain Kangaroo read it. It’s still one of my favorite children’s books.

  4. I loved The Great Space Coaster! Especially Francine, the beautiful 16 year old brunette singer/guitar player in TGSC band! Frannie used to sing, “I want to ride my bicycle!” in one of the live footage video segments of the show.
