The Ladybugs' Picnic Sesame Street Video

Nostalgia Manila is proud to present: The Sesame Street Lunchbox! Featuring video clips of all your favorite scenes from the original Sesame Street series.

Sesame Street played a big role in educating the younger generation during the '70s. Many agree that the original series was far more imaginative and educational compared to the one you see today. This is for everyone who grew up with the original Sesame Street. Enjoy!

The Ladybugs' Picnic
"12 ladybugs came, at the ladybugs' picnic."

Ito ang isa sa mga pinaka simpleng animated shorts na napanuod mo sa Sesame Street, pero hindi mo makalimutan ang kanta! Kahit anong gawin mo, hindi mo maalis sa ulo mo ang kantang ito. Panay ang bilang mo ng "1,2,3...4,5,6...7,8,9...10,11,12...", at memoryado mo ang mga parte ng lyrics ng kanta, at kinakanta ninyo ito ng mga classmate mo sa school. Panuurin natin!

Together In Electric Dreams - Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder
"We'll always be together, together in electric dreams."

Electric Dreams is a 1984 movie set in San Francisco, California that depicts a love triangle between a man, a woman, and a home computer. It stars Lenny Von Dohlen, Virginia Madsen and Bud Cort (voice) and was directed by Steve Barron. The soundtrack features music from prominent popular musicians of the time, being among of the movies of this generation that actively explored the commercial link between a movie and its soundtrack. The VHS videotape conversion of this movie is rare. It was released in 1984 and again in 1991, but has not been manufactured since the mid-1990s. The movie's main theme here was a collaboration between Phil Oakey (known for Human League fame), and electronic music, synth wizard Giorgio Moroder.

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels Cartoon Opening Video

There was nothing like watching your favorite cartoons on a rainy afternoon after school, or waking up early to catch Saturday morning cartoons. Relive the best of '60s, '70s, and '80s cartoons with Cartoon TV Rama!

Watch video clips of opening sequences and famous scenes taken from your favorite animated shows!

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels (1977)

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels centres on the mystery-solving adventures of the Teen Angels (cowardly brunette Brenda Chance, seductive blonde Taffy Dare and brainy African-American Dee Dee Sykes) and their friend Captain Caveman (or Cavey for short), a prehistoric caveman whom the girls discovered and thawed from a block of ice. The concept and general plot for the show was seen as a parody of Charlie's Angels. It also borrowed heavily from other Hanna-Barbera shows such as Scooby-Doo and Josie and the Pussycats, among others. Captain Caveman's powers include super-strength, a variety of useful objects hidden inside his fur, and a club that allows him to fly and from which pops out different tools he uses to fight crime. His trademark is his battle cry of "Captain CAAAAAAAVEMAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!" Captain Caveman's voice was provided by Mel Blanc.

The Adventures of Letterman: Singing in the Train
"It's a word, it's a plan, it's Letterman!"

Papano mo malilimutan si Letterman?! Siya ang superhero sa Electric Company na mukhang football player. Siya ang nagturo sa iyo kung papano bumuo ng mga words. Lagi kang nabubwiset sa kanyang kalaban na mukhang bumbay na laging may suot na puting turban. Salbahe talaga yun dahil iniiba niya ang mga words. Pero buti na lang, laging dumarating si Letterman to save the day.

Suburbia - Pet Shop Boys
"Lets take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight, in suburbia."

The longevity of their career is generally attributed to their ability to create melodic pop/dance music with intelligent lyrics and striking style. They are one of the most consistently successful duos in pop music, particularly in Europe. Since 1986, they have had 39 top 30 singles in the UK including four number ones: "West End girls", "It's a sin", "Always on my mind" and "Heart". They were very successful in the United States in the mid-1980s; however, their mainstream popularity waned by 1988 with their final top 40 single, "Domino Dancing", reaching number 18 on the US pop chart. They have continued to be successful worldwide since then, however, and their popularity is still prevalent through their very active and devoted fan base.
