8 Clips of Morgan Freeman Being Awesome on The Electric Company

Before he was driving Miss Daisy, helping Andy bust out of Shawshank or making gadgets for Batman, Morgan Freeman starred in the The Electric Company from 1971-1977. He was, of course, badass. Here are some of the highlights.

Before Bunnicula, there was Vincent the Vegetable Vampire.

As Vincent, Morgan didn’t sparkle or require a diet of blood. But he did enjoy bubble baths.

Don’t you hate when you need to sneeze but it won’t quite come out? So does Morgan Freeman.

We’re going to bring things down for a moment here with a slow jam: “Shoo Shoo Sunshine.”

And now we’re going to bring it back up with the DJ stylings of “Mel Mounds.”

Morgan Freeman orders a ham sandwich.

Groovy Morgan Freeman as “Easy Reader.” Not only does he sing with Rita Moreno, he’s got some pretty sweet moves, too.

Take a Tour of Singapore's Incredible Supertree Grove
Original image

There aren't many parks like Supertree Grove. Tucked inside Gardens by the Bay, a nature park in Singapore comprised of 250 acres of reclaimed land, Supertree Grove is a futuristic colony featuring 18 manmade tree-like vertical gardens, which are home to more than 160,000 plants, including more than 200 varieties of bromeliads, orchids, ferns, and tropical flowering climbers.

Visitors to the park are encouraged to walk from one tree to the next along a raised path overlooking the city. At night, the photovoltaic systems built into the supertrees light up with solar power, covering the area in dazzling purple hues.

Supertree Grove was commissioned by the Singapore government as a way to improve the quality of life for its residents, but they seem to have achieved more than that: the park has become a must-see site for horticulture enthusiasts and curious travelers from all over the world.

You can see more of these Supertrees in the video from Great Big Story below:
