The Electric Company – Sign Song Parody #3

From a black and white kinescope. Carmela (Rita Moreno) is raving about how much she likes Clark Gesner’s “Sign Song”, but Lorelei (Jim Boyd) responds with a more animal-centric version. I’ve also included the next sketch, where Skip Hinnant plays a man who falls asleep in a tow away zone, with Morgan Freeman as the cop who finds him, and Judy Graubart narrating.

    The animals in Lorelei’s song are too cute!

    The man could probably fight his ticket in court because the sign didn’t make sense when he started snoozing there.
    Not unlike the guy who sued the police for towing his car, because the sign said, “No parking violators will be towed.”

    I’m not a vegetarian because I love animals;
    I’m a vegetarian because I hate plants.

    As soon as I saw this clip, I thought of the bums that sleep on the sidewalks of Chicago. However, I have yet to see a bum snoozing in a “Tow Away Zon.”

    Judy Graubart has the cutest voice. She should read audiobooks for a living.

    All right, Nanto! You’ve talked about it. I remember it vividly…. Now you must find the segment from EC where Lorlei was fried! :-)

    I am having roasted Lorelei sandwich as I watched that video. The place I get them
    from makes a killer bird.

    I think this has been the first time I’ve ever seen Skip’s glasses used as part of the skit. Hahahahah he got towed away!

    “Don’t seat children if they’re squawkers
    Don’t fry chickens if they’re talkers.”

    Oh no, Iris forgot about one of the don’ts! Or maybe having to make an exception for Cosby’s cornflakes with ketchup taught her that the don’t could be overruled by customers, and she didn’t realize Crank was joking when he asked her to fry up that pesky bird.

    Lorelei disappeared from the show because he wound up in the frying pan at Vi’s Diner due to a tragic mistake.

    Well I never!

    “Can I take a raincheck?” “NO!” Lorelei sounds like the perfect pet chicken for Crank… :)
