Not that my mom used the TV as a babysitter, but the only way she could bathe regularly for all of the first 5 yrs of the 70's was thanks to Sesame Street. Aparently my favorite line was "It's the clummer, and I've come to fix the sink..."
She says I had trouble saying PLumber, so I said CLummer instead.
My faves were Electric Co. (who knew Easy Reader would eventually Drive Miss Daisy?) and Capt. Kangaroo... gotta love Mr. Moose and Mr. Rabbit.... And I know my name is Simon, and the things I draw come true....
Wahhhhh, I wanna be a kid again!!!!!! :D
