Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I came here to say the same thing (about not remembering any of these characters), though I can remember the song for the show).

I remember that the show existed and that I liked it, but that's all. Does that mean I'm getting old?

My favorite has to be The Amazing Adventures of LETTERMAN! Narrated by Joan Rivers! Followed closely by Morgan Freeman as Easy Reader, of course!

As a very young kid, I liked Millie the Helper, because Rita Moreno simply screaming "Hey, you guys!" was enough to entertain me.

As I got a little older, I tended to gravitate to all the Morgan Freeman characters: Easy Reader, DJ Mel Mounds, and Vincent the Vegetable Vampire. I also was partial to the animated Mel Brooks character that read words on the screen (don't know if the character had a name).

My favourite person from the original Electric Company show was Rita Moreno. I loved it when she'd holler, 'Hey you guyyyyyys!' at the beginning of the show.

I also loved her song:
Punc Punc Punc PUNCuation!
They are the little marks that use their influence,
To help a sentence make MORE sense!

My favorite recurring part of the show was
Love of Chair - but what about Emily?
and my favorite character was Julia Grownup.
