Someone posted about the old Seasame Street. So I thought I'd post about ZOOM, and The Electric Company. Does anyone remember those two? I used to rush home from school to watch those shows. I also would watch Mr. Rogers as well. He died a few years back. But all of those old shows really made me happy and bring back such memories. I was just wondering who else was into those old shows? And remembers them?

  • Yeah, I remember Morgan Freeman on The Electric Company. The new version is just as whack as the old school one. Love it!

  • Yes I do, c'mon and zoom, zoom, zooma, zoom that was part of the "Zoom"

    And the "The Electric Company" where "Rita Moreno" would yell out "HEY YOU GUYS!!!" (atleast I thought that was sounded like her)

    Now she's become an actress, when I see her on movies I remember her saying those words

    Ahh! those were the days....happy

  • Thanks for all of your responses. Guesss what??? I still remember the addy. Box 350 Boston Mass 02134 ...................... Send it to ZOOM .................. Now what a memoery hun? I wanted to be on that show so bad. I wanted a red and blue shirt. I used to like Nancy with the 2 ponytails. That was a great show. And the Electric Comapny had some Good Shows as well. They had a special on Noggin a few years ago, and I had recorded it. I think it was 4 episodes. I still have it. It's old. But it makes my day everytime I pull it out and play it. I enjoy the older shows so much better than the remakes. Thanks you all for the input. Add more comments if you'd like. How old are yall of you? I am 43. Feels like I am still a young girl. Thanks again for taking a walk down memory lane with me. I will be posting more questions.
