Takin' it back to Sesame Street

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Jason Kottke points to a massive list of archival Sesame Street videos. One I've never seen (or don't think I did—I was three when it aired in 1972) is this super-funky Stevie Wonder tune by the name of "1-2-3." I love the vocoder vocal effects: look for the tube in Stevie's mouth that he uses to create the weird robot voice.

My daughters are already too old for Sesame Street, but they did watch it quite a bit when they were younger. Still, they have a lot more kids' TV choices than I did, so I wonder if their memories of it will be as fond?
