The Electric Company Digital Archive

The Electric Company was the show I most looked forward to as a kid. The funk beats and catchy songs fooled my generation into believing we were being entertained, while teaching us grammar, phonetics, reading basics, and even manners. The show is long since off the air, the 780 episodes living on as nothing more than a memory. Fortunately, a small fraction of the show’s best material is available via The Electric Company MP3 archive; featuring both MP3 recordings of some of the musical numbers and postage stamp size QuickTime videos of some of the better animated sketches. I’m guessing the site does not have permission to distribute this material, but a lack of reruns or DVD boxed sets means fan sites are the only alternative.
