Before the hit and famous Morgan Freeman, he was a performer on the American educational children’s TV series The Electric Company. He performed on the show between 1970 and 1975, and one of the various characters that he played one was Vincent the Vegetable Vampire, a singing being of the night who needed vegetables instead of human blood.
