Super Sesame Street
File this one under "things I never expected to see again".
I remember, watching Sesame Street as a lad, being truly pleased when they would play the infrequent clip of Superman teaching us about the letter S. (Remember, this was back before every possible television whim could be indulged by a click of a button or a trip to Wal-mart).
So, the other night, and I can't explain how it came to me, I thought, "Gee, I wonder if that Superman clip from Sesame Street is on YouTube?"
Guess what? It was. Along with lots of other trips down memory lane, such as all my favourite Ernie and Bert clips, and even a clip of Spider-man's first appearance on "The Electric Company" (which we didn't get in Nova Scotia in the stone age -- ie. pre-cable television days -- though I had read the comic book adaptation of that clip in issue number one of "Spidey Super Stories").
So, please join me in my nostalgia rush:
(Just try not to dwell too long on the image of me sitting up in bed late at night, laptop on my lap, watching Ernie and Bert over and over. Particularly with my wife lying next to me, thinking, "What was that crisis intervention number anyway??")
