If our Friday Sing-Along had you curious, here’s a look at what The Electric Company offered up to us young tikes back in the day.

Narrated by Todd Graff, with Danny Seagren as Spidey, Jim Boyd as the Yeti, and Morgan Freeman as the policeman who wants to end the Yeti’s squashing spree.

The groovy Spider Man theme song was composed by Gary William Friedman, and the vocals on this version were performed by the fourth lineup of the Short Circus.

I forgot how many well known stars made appearances on TEC

    Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, um… Hell, Bill Cosby even did a season or two, and his segments were reused for the rest of the run. This was THE coolest educational TV Show, and I am saying that as a rather large supporter of “Sesame Street (pre-Elmo)”. E.C. was…. ELECTRIC~! This is the rightest thing ever. ;-)
