Summary
A clip-filled celebration featuring many of the series' most popular segments, with Bill Cosby, Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, and the multi-talented Electric Company cast. A cultural phenomenon in the '70s, this wildly popular educational television show with big laughs had a bigger message: teaching children basic reading and grammar skills with the emphasis on fun. Includes interviews with cast members Jim Boyd, Judy Graubart, Skip Hinnant, Tom Lehrer, Rita Moreno, Joan Rivers, and series creator Joan Ganz Cooney
