In the years between 1971 and 1985, few shows promoted reading as creatively and energetically as The Electric Company. A virtual "video" classroom that was as informative as it was entertaining, The Electric Company used sketches, animation, and music to encourage literacy as a series of teachers including Bill Cosby, Morgan Freeman, and even Spider Man gave children all the tools needed in order to strengthen their vocabulary and reading skills. With this release, nostalgic television viewers can take a trip back in time as a series of guest stars including Gene Wilder, Joan Rivers, Mel Brooks, and Tom Lehrer join in the fun to prove just how hip and cool reading can really be. ~ Jason Buchanan
