“The Electric Company” was a children’s television show from the 1970s that continued airing re-runs well into the ’80s (which explains why I vaguely remember it). But I never realized that the show featured Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, and Rita Moreno (Anita in the film version of West Side Story).

Anyway, here’s video of Freeman rockin’ with the letter “G” — sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it’s soft, baby. That’s right, before he was Hollywood’s go-to septuagenarian granddaughter-humper of gravitas, he was just a groovy hippie in a tasseled vest and peach bellbottoms dancin’ with a white woman to improve reading skills. The ’70s were a crazy time, man. Vote Nixon!
