The Earth Day Special 1990

Happy World Environment Day folks. Considering there was so little hype about it this year (are we over the greenies phase already?), I thought I’d share with you these few videos (okay, just one but I’ll give you the links to the rest).

These videos are from The Earth Day Special in 1990, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Earth Day. ABC brought together an amazing host of A-list actors, musicians, athletes and more for this show.

Among them are Dustin Hoffman, Christina Applegate, the late Jonathan Brandis, Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Jane Fonda and Robin Williams most of whom appear as themselves. Bette Midler plays Mother Nature!

The interesting thing also is that they used iconic TV characters to make cameo appearances – Bill Cosby appears as Bill Huxtable, Neil Patrick Harris as Dr Doogie Howser and Candice Bergen as Murphy Brown. Even Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird makes an appearance!

I only managed to find these yesterday – can’t believe I never tried looking for it on YouTube. Or Google. Fail.

But so happy that I found them. I’m gonna try and watch them all in a go over the weekend.You can view all episodes (11 in all) on YouTube here.

Speaking of weekend, by the way, what are you doing on Sunday? If you’re free (and in KL), head over to FRIM in Kepong for The Star’s Green Day Celebration. We do this every year, and as usual, the BRATs and R.AGE team will be manning our own booth as well. Details here. Come by to say hi please!
