Yeah! "The Electric Company" will be back on PBS.

I just finished reading an Associated Press piece that reported PBS is bringing The Electric Company back to daily programming. What a treat for our children!

All our children grew up with the original program and loved it. It's such a great way to introduce reading/words to our children. Even though I don't have any children at home any more, I'm going to watch some of the new shows. I want to find out about "Silent E," the badest ninja in town. He can turn glob into a globe, plan into a plane and make a hug huge.

HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!! I remember watching Zoom, EC, and Mr Rogers back to back.

LOVED the Muppets, but after Jim Hensen passed away the went down hill. He WAS the one and only Kermit.

I loved The Muppets, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, and Sesame Street (I was grown but watched Mr. Roger's and Sesame Street with my daughter). I never saw The Electric Company, but I know James loved it.

No, it's not but, from the report, it sounds just as fun.
