Je Suis La Jeune Fille!

Growing up I guess I watched a lot of TV. Or I have an incredible memory. Or both. Either way, I saw the wondrous commercial for Muzzy multiple times a day and always secretly hoped our household would be blessed with a set of Muzzy learning sets. I even took French all through school, and I think the young girl from the Muzzy commercial influenced that decision pretty mightily. While Y'all & Yanks was once again discussing the finer points of being multi-lingual and needing to find a copy of Rosetta Stone tonight, I proffered Muzzy to her yet again. Several months ago I had a similar Muzzy flashback and found the old commercial on YouTube. I immediately sent the video to my brother, who, liked me, remembered each and every word. If the commercial verbiage can stay with me for almost 20 years, I can't even imagine the brilliance that the full course could provide. Please tell me that I'm not the only one who was obsessed with this linguistic cartoon commercial. Anyone? Anyone?

OK. Seriously, I have never heard of this. I am older than you (I swear never to admit that again) so I should've heard of this. I think your parents made this commercial and TV show so you would have something wholesome to watch. Silver Spoons was too much for your precious ears. I, on the other hand, was being corrupted each day! HA!

I loved Muzzy! I always wanted to get the video and learn French! I still to this day want to learn French. I am contemplating buying the Rosetta Stone through my work when I finish college and have more time to devote to learning another language.

OK, this is like brand new information to me. How did I miss out on Muzzy???? Did I just not watch the cool TV channels as a kid?
