Matt at Scrubbles shared this "Electric Company" clip extolling the virtues of the so-1970s phrase "Right on!" At first I thought I didn't remember it, but when he hops over to the TV, my memories started to click in. Aw, what a great trip into the past.
Rita Moreno was at the TV Critics' summer press tour last July promoting "Cane," the big sprawling Cuban soap opera she was in. Can't say I cared for her show, but just hearing the voice that blasted "HEYYYYY YOOOOOOU GUUUUUYS!" in person was worth the price of admission. One of the critics I met there apparently went up to Rita Moreno and thanked her for teaching him how to read. Aww. Wish I'd thought to do something similar.
