Before Morgan Freeman became the famous actor that we know today, he was a performer on the American educational children’s television series The Electric Company. He appeared on the show between 1970 and 1975, and one of the many characters that he played was Vincent the Vegetable Vampire, a singing creature of the night who craved vegetables instead of blood.
By moonlight I stalk the celery and turn the turnips to pulp. Whatever I may catch, it’s squeezed for juice, and natch, I drink it all down in one gulp. I’m Vincent the Vegetable Vampire. In the nighttime, the tomatoes start to scream. Vincent the Vegetable Vampire. I’ll be sleeping in the garden of your dreams.
I always enjoy coming across videos like this that give us a little glimpse at what certain actors were doing before they became famous. This one is a real treat.
