    Doesn’t seem like a real filmstrip without the advance the film beeps.

    there is a voice there – the vaguely male child’s voice – that is incredibly familiar to me from records I had as a young kid. Anyone have ideas as to how to find out who the voice talent was on these?

    That’s Definitely June Foray. No one has that voice.

    #8: I know which one you’re talking about. It’s driving me nuts trying to place where else I’ve heard it. :)

    It does sound a bit like June Foray.

    That couldn’t be Derrick Bostrom of the Meat Puppets, could it? Hot damn, it could be, and is! Thanks Derrick for the great times past, and the interesting tidbits to come!

    Archive.org has a bunch of these old filmstrips up. Most are available as TIFF scans.

    Well that pretty much explains why rock-and-roll took off with the kids.
