They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To

Take a look at this very old footage from Sesame Street featuring Richard Pryor going over the alphabet.

He reminds me of a teacher who's just one page ahead in the book. Every new letter seems like a little surprise. I also like the short story he tells while announcing all the letters. Up until J or so it sounds like they're going to brawl.

But despite all of this, Pryor conducted himself with the cool demeanor of a much sober-er man.
