    This video definately falls into the Forgotten NY mold with lots of stuff shown here.

    If you watch my post of “Sign Song Parody #3”, that sketch is included at the end.

    Does anybody remember a sketch where Skip is sleeping on the sidewalk in a Tow Away Zone, so a policeman puts a ticket under his glasses and drags him away?

    Not really, but I used to think it was Joe Raposo years ago when I didn’t know what he looked like.

    Doesn’t he kind of look like Joe Raposo?

    Classic stuff! Nothing like what is on now, so simple and direct.

    I would add the new Electric Company on PBS Kids and maybe Sprout?

    The cab driver probably wasn’t anyone famous, but just an actual cabbie whom the filmmaker asked if he’d like to be in a film.

  14. RSG2006 7:01 pm 25/01 of 2010

    Dunno, but that’s nowhere near Jane Street and Jones Street.

    man, i still love NY, my home state. Channel 13 PBS!!!!

    I believe it was this film that started my life-long obsession with signs.

    The second half of the song was sung by Charlie Brown’s teacher.

  18. buzzlewie 10:11 am 29/01 of 2010

    Wow, bring back the good ol days.

    I agree about the show attracting genius, but that is absolutely, positively 100% not George Carlin. He does look somewhat similar to Carlin from that era.

  20. ProfessorIgor 9:23 pm 30/01 of 2010

    the guy is George Carlin…. this show seemed to attract genius… Tom Lehrer, Joe Raposo, Morgan Freeman, the list goes on… very brilliant people

  21. Qermaq 8:47 am 2/02 of 2010

    Bassoon with trumpet in harmon with stem extended doing wah-wah for the repeat chorus. Joe Raposo = freakin’ brilliant. No one else ever did that!

  22. cherilynn64 2:42 am 5/02 of 2010

    LOL – I’m 44 and just sang 90% of it from memory! 70s kids tv ROCKED. I’m so glad I grew up when I did :-)

  23. bdguile 12:17 am 7/02 of 2010

  24. firestepher72 9:33 am 10/02 of 2010
