Something to Look Forward To In 2009

THE ELECTRIC COMPANY is coming back to PBS in January. We saw a sneak peek at NCTE this year and I just shared some of the preview clips with my 9 year olds. Looks like a fun, updated version. And it was fun to see some of the same routines (Do you remember, "HEY, YOU GUYS!?"). If you want to see what it's all about, I found some preview clips on the site here.

  3. That is so cool! I'm only sorry that my kids are past the target age. I grew up watching Electric Company and it would have been fun to have my kids grow up with the new version.

    "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?"

    "Picking up words and making them run right."

    But I still haven't forgotten it.
