Right on!

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.

We bought the Electric Company box set a year ago, and Quinn *LOVES* it! You can't beat those little song shorts...they are just fabulous!!
