!! OMG, how fun: 70s childrens TV !!

A young Richard Pryor Morgan Freeman plays “Easy Reader,” a biker with an appetite for written words, on the 1970s childrens show The Electric Company. Is it me, or is there some major chemistry between Easy Reader and Carmela? (Thanks to Kevin R. for the tip!)
