The coolest bit of the Electric Company DVD box set has got to be the oldschool PBS bumper at the end of every episode.

and here's a video clip in RealVideo for those who want the groovy synth stuff, too.

You have it already?

I'm going to buy it and just roll in nostalgia for an entire weekend.

I just got it tonight. Watched the first episode and shrieked, however inwardly, with glee.

I saw a bunch of Electric Company on Noggin a little while ago, and the thing that struck me about it was that my childhood was COMPLETELY FUNKATIZED and I never consciously realized it at the time.

I mean, even Letterman had a blaxploitation-quality funky intro even though he was narrated by Joan Rivers. I would kill to have that play whenever I was about to appear.

Letterman was voiced by Gene Wilder, that much I knew, but I didn't realize Zero Mostel was the voice of the villian! (Bialystock & Bloom in a cartoon!)

Thank you DVD liner notes!

I just watched that over and over for a few minutes. Soothingest bumper ever.

I don't know if it's absolutely the coolest, but it's right up at the top of the list.

Retrojunk.com has this and many other fine logo-bumpers from the past, including the WGBH "eeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyeeblyBWOOOOOOO" that scared the crap out of me when I was seventeen five.

Is that icon from Tales From the Bully Pulpit? If so...that's AWESOME.

interestingly, the PBS logo has a less-than-enthusiastic following at the closing logo group and metafilter.

The fact that the guy in the first link has to rate the logos by how "scary" they are speaks volumes about his childhood and how much (or how little) he's been able to get over certain traumas. "May scare you the first time you see it..." Oh, ok.
