The Electric Company was a great kids show on PBS in the 1970s.  It is amazing how many now-famous actors were on this show, including Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, Bill Cosby, and Irene Cara.

The Electric Company was one of my favorite shows when I was little. The show was extra special if it had an episode of Letterman (Kind of like how Saturday Night Live was special when it had a Mr. Bill segment... remember that!).  See if you can figure out who narrates this episode of Letterman!

Probably the best of the Letterman videos. "Dancing in the Dark." This an ancient file and the quality is poor. As pointed out in the comments, Joan Rivers was the narrator, and Gene Wilder voiced The Letterman.

The Electric Company collection of literacy lessons is designed for students from ages six through nine. The Electric Company literacy lessons are focused on helping students decode sounds and words, build their vocabularies, and improve their reading comprehension skills. The Electric Company's literacy lessons use short instructional videos (some of them are kind of corny) along with some interactive activities to help students toward becoming better readers.

The Electric Company aims to entertain children between the ages of 6 and 9 while teaching four crucial areas of literacy that are challenging for struggling readers: decoding, vocabulary, comprehension of connected text, and motivation.

with a cast that included morgan freeman, rita moreno and bill cosby, this show was easily one of the best on television.  arguably ever.
