Marlomania on TV Land's web site

free to be you and meOh man, does this bring back memories. My fellow Gen Xers surely remember the album and television special Free to Be You and Me, featuring a ton of stars, including Marlo Thomas (who produced the special), Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, Harry Belafonte, Shel Silverstein and many others. My sister and I used to listen to that album all the time, and hearing that title song again brought back a lot of memories.

Right now you can watch the complete TV special on TVLand.com, along with full episodes of That Girl. The series, along with the Emmy-awarding winning Free To Be You and Me special, will air as part of a 48-hour marathon the weekend of December 9. I'm going to watch the special now, since I didn't even know until recently there even was a TV special, I always thought it was just the record album. I guess I was too engrossed in our little Fisher-Price record player to pay attention.

Let us know what you thought of it, Adam. It'll be interesting to see how the actual special measures up to your imagination.

I still remember the special and the bit with the baby puppets (voiced by Marlo and Mel) is especially vivid in my memories. So whenever I listen to my copy of the soundtrack, I'm locked into the images from the TV show.
