Okay, I'm telling my age now but do you remember the show Electric Company from the 70's? Back in the day, when I was in elementary school, the teachers would use the show as a learning device. And truthfully, I think they used the show as babysitter during rainy days when we couldn't go outside for recess. Honestly, it was kind of a treat for me. I enjoyed watching and learning. A trait I carry with me even now. I tend to be more visual than not. Know what I mean? Anyway, I still remember the segment on the word "Enough." They pronounced it phonetically: "E" - "new" - "ga"- "ha." I think I flash back to the show every time I spell the word "enough." I wonder how popular the show would be with kids today? I saw the complete DVD collection in the store the other day for about $46. Any of you use the show to teach your kids now?
For you Retro folks.... here's a clip to enjoy: Recognize anyone?
Some of the members of the cast were: Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, and Joan Rivers. The series ran from about 1971 - 1977.
And for you real Electric Company fans.... You know the best part of the show was the theme song.
