Were we smoking crack when we were kids? Cuz why do these kid shows look so weird now? Here are examples of music in cartoons that were either great guest appearances, influences by what was going on in music at that time, or just plain silly.
Pee Wee’s Playhouse/Grace Jones
Did Grace Jones win cool points or lose cool points for this appearance?
Ren & Stimpy/Happy Happy Joy Joy and Log
Still catchy as ever.
Electric Company/Easy Reader
Disco influenced educational TV.
Is that first character supposed to be Bob Dylan?
Mr. Rogers/Potato Bugs and Cows
I’m not sure what this is supposed to be teaching…
