Wolf Cub Scouts from Pack 74 in Newark, N.J., were in for a treat when they visited “The Electric Company” TV show soundstage.
“The Electric Company” is a new version of a popular series that ran from the 1970’s to 2003. The show features four kid heroes who can scramble, recall, project and animate words in cool ways.
While touring the soundstage, the guys also got a beat-box lesson from Shockwave, probably the show’s coolest character. Played by Eagle Scout Chris Sullivan, Shockwave is a vocal percussionist who teaches letter sounds and words on the show.
