If you grew up watching Sesame Street in the 70s, this song is firmly lodged in your memory. Click here to learn more about it. This has nothing to do with Neil Young.
1. What kind of mother gives cow milk to a baby? Use formula at least!2. As a kid, these kind of videos made me feel that the world was incomprehensibly complex and made me want to give up on understanding any of it.
I was a child in the 70s. I watched Sesame Street. And I have no memory of this.(Of course, LOTS of people don't remember LOTS of stuff from the 70s)
Oh, I remember this for sure. The frenetic pacing of the music and editing and the urgency with which the truck driver moves used to give me intense anxiety as a kid. I was certain they wouldn't get the milk to the baby in time and it would starve, or at least keep crying.
Just the intro was enough to hit my "nostalgia" switch. Thanks, Adam!
I love this segment. But then, I loved just about everything about Sesame Street back in the day. Half my dorm in college used to watch it. Too good for kids!I'm not so crazy about it now, mostly because of Elmo, but the older stuff is still great. And one of the greatest things about it was the number of fine "serious" artists and musicians who either appeared on the show (Itzhak Perlman, for instance, with a little girl just learning to play the violin, and they talked about how each of them could do things that were hard for the other) or contributed segments like this (Philip Glass's Color Wheel is one of my faves).As for the milk and the baby, she's old enough to have some teeth and to eat solid food, so her digestion can handle it just fine as long as she's not lactose intolerant.I'm more concerned that this appears to be raw milk that's been exposed to the air several times during transportation and bottling. Raw milk fresh out of the cow is fine, but every outside exposure is another chance for contamination.But that's a whole 'nother thing. Thanks for the flashback, Adam!
Oh. My. God.Thank you, Adam.
