One for the old folks out there. Franklin Roosevelt was the jive-talking black Muppet on the early seasons of Sesame Street. Here he is doing a call-and-response alphabet with his mother to with a funk bassline and a voice that makes me wonder if his dad isn't Barry White.
Matt Robinson was the voice of Franklin Roosevelt. Robinson was the first Gordon, and also the de facto host of the show, and had a producer credit, too. The current Gordon, Roscoe Orman, is the third Gordon, and the only Gordon most of you whippersnappers know; he took over in 1973. Franklin's mom in this song is Loretta Long, who's played Susan all along.
