Better than me. I've been running around the cell block singing the "Letterman" theme for the last 5-10 minutes

I remember it.

It's the show my gradeschool teacher would put on the tv and make us watch when she was too hungover to teach.

"buh"

"eeer"

"beer"......

"buh"

"ooz"

"booze"....

A Sesame Street rip off. I didn't like it. For me, it was Romper Room and Sesame Street.

IIRC, PBS had an intended developmental order for these shows.

You started with Mr. Rogers. Once you had some grasp of English, you moved on to Sesame Street and learned numbers and letters.

Once you learned numbers and letters, you went to The Electric Company and learned some reading (and I think a little arithmetic). By then, grade school has you sort of interested in the world, and you'd start watching 3-2-1 Contact.

That's what I heard, anyway.

Howabout "Today's Special"? Once I realized they were Canadians, it explained a LOT.

I remember one episode where they went to the police station and watched the policewoman shoot her revo (poss. a Webley .38?) at a silhouette target. You won't see that these days!

I can't remember the show it was on,but it went something like this,teaching how a bill becomes a law.I haven't got this little jingle out of my head for decades:

Bill (singing): "I hope and pray that I will,but today I am still,just a bill

Toon Host: "Congratulationd bill,your a law!!!"

Celebration ensues on the steps of the house of reps.

This shit drives me crazy sometimes.

HR Puffinstuff was kinda wierd,like a show where everybody was stoned and a freaky looking witch.

That was fromABC's School House Rock series. It was called "I'm Just A Bill." School Houes Rock was on every saturday morning.

Spiderman! Nobody knows where you're coming from SPIDERMAN, nobody knows who you are!

That show and Sesame Street taught me literacy at a very young age, like 3 or so. Loved the Electric Company.

I downloaded a few of the Schoolhouse Rock tunes from a peer-to-peer network. The "Shot Heard Round the World" tune is a trip, it is inconceivable that a network would put out something like that to kids today.

"Get your guns! Fight!" It's really martial, talks about battle, etc.

Yup, I remember Electric Company. My favorite was the typewriter. "numa, numa, numa, numa."

That show explained to me how cameras worked when I was like 5 or 6. By the principles.

All the good shows came on when my dad came to pick me up. Sitcoms like Gilligan's Islan and Get Smart and 321 contact. For most of the day, the tv content was BS like soaps and game shows.
