While I was researching yesterday’s blog, in which I pointed out that Sesame Street used to be indefensibly filthy, I stumbled across some rarely seen Filmation cartoons, made especially for Sesame Street, in which Superman teaches the alphabet and Batman and Robin teach safe street crossing.
Here’s a typical day’s work for Superman, saving shipwrecked sailors on storm-savaged seas, and salvaging a stellar ship from space. (See? I took my “s” lesson seriously.)
Next, Batman and Robin teach abstract concepts while Batman shows off some trick batarang work.
Lastly, here’s the Dynamic Duo again, this time almost letting the Joker get away because of their stiff adherence to “cross at the green, not in between.”
They call Batman a vigilante? The guy won’t even jaywalk!
