Hey you guuuyyysss! Many parents will remember that beloved catchphrase from the original, THE ELECTRIC COMPANY. Over 30 years later, the show has been re-energized to relate to today's kids with a hip, young cast and a dose of pop culture. It strives to power up children's fundamental reading skills with music, humor, technology and celebrities.
THE ELECTRIC COMPANY itself is a group of friends who share a love of language and are sworn to do the right thing. They solve problems and prevail against their neighborhood's pranksters by using their literacy superpowers.
In addition to the television program, THE ELECTRIC COMPANY offers a comprehensive on- and offline component, reaching kids via online games, after-school programs, community activities and other mediums.
THE ELECTRIC COMPANY is produced by Sesame Workshop, the force behind the iconic children's program, Sesame Street.
For children 6 to 9 years old.
