The Electric Company

Educational comedy-sketch show that teaches children the basic concepts of reading, grammar, and other literary focal points.
This show was regarded as the first modern comedy-sketch show which influenced a show like Saturday Night Live. Actress Rita Moreno is the only cast member in the show that didn't appear in the show's finale. As a child, actor Giancarlo Esposito was one of the children singing the chorus of the opening theme song.
