Spiderman...Nobody Knows Who You Are!

I was real excited to hear the The Electric Company was coming out on DVD finally, (eventhough it's a "best of" compilation and not season 1) 'cause I'm a huge fan. I'll probably get it at Deep Discount DVD they seem to have the best prices most of the time...or they do in this case, at least.
I've got a pretty big collection of Electric Company items, including: the Spidey Stories album, several of the story 45's, magazines...even a teacher's edition of the school activity book. I'll scan some stuff at some point and post it.
I had TEC on my mind the other day when I popped into a local comic store I'd spotted a while back. They had a good selection. One of the boxes had a healthy run of The Electric Company's Spidey Super Stories, including #1.
I'm sure whoever collected them, wanted them for the Romita art and could care less about TEC as the stories are very basic and non violent. I plan to go back and get some other issues, but I bought #1 and have scanned it for your bemusement. I also scanned the very short story that shows how Spidey came to be a cast memeber of The Electric Company. Included in the story is, of course my favorite, Easy Reader...Morgan Freeman.

Man, I only barely remember that show! I had a Fargo North book that had cameos from Easy Reader, Spidey, and Jane and that gorilla (I forget his name.)(Wait! It was Paul!). I need to watch those dvds! Netflix here I come!

I've never had the pleasure of seeing a full episode of The Electric Company. It was before my time, and it's one of those rare shows that was never made available to me in re-runs.

Yay, DVD.

I love how Spiderman doesn't want to get involved and tries to run away.
