Hey Cow! I See You Now.

My Sister nicknamed me "Cow" 30 years ago and I've always loved JOE RAPOSO'S vocal performance on the SESAME STREET Classic Film - HOW MILK IS MADE.

is that Lorne Greene doing the voice-over - the trippy music/vox is so very at odds with the old school narration. Best aspect of it....on farms across America.

CORRECT credits and other comments are here from the daughters of Hugh and Suzanne Johnston (their daughters are friends of mine from when we were in high school). Claire and Huguette (my friends) added this important information tonight.

"...the YouTube clip credits a Joe Rapaso...my mother told me back in 2009 or so that he was a producer(?) at Children's Television Workshop (CTW), the company that produced Sesame Street. He was not involved with the production of this short film. The film clip is authentic, but the crediting on YouTube is not accurate.
As Huguette mentions, the singer is the very talented Bill Brown, an undergraduate at Princeton who my parents first saw perform in a Triangle Show production. They sought out his talents afterwards!

Protase Woodford was the narrator.He did voice overs at ETS...and was a lifelong friend of my parents. ...beautiful voice!

Bill Brown from Princeton University Triangle Show wrote the song and music with Dad...

The cat drinking milk in the very beginning is the one and only Bootie..!!♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡The first kitty love of my life!!!!!..She used to let me dress her up in doll clothes and push her around in a baby buggy when I was about 5. So much more fun than a doll!"

The little girl in the green dress and with wonderfully curly hair is Fran, youngest daughter of the filmmakers.

Please correct your information. Thanks!
