Long ago memories

A memory from four decades ago.  Brooklyn, NY 1968.  My mom and dad (and Mom may have been pregnant with my little brother) would often shuffle me off to my Abuela's apartment on Friday nights.  Abuela, who is still alive, is Puerto Rican and we used to sit in the foldout couch in the living room watching WAPA. 

I was so happy to find that not only can you find videos of the station's mascot on YouTube, he's still in use on the station!  Now that's a kitty using all his nine lives!  (Believe it or not, the cat is male and in some spots you see his wife and kittens.)



EDIT: Actually, El Gato's been retired, although there is an updated version of him and a page for his return on Facebook.

The ability to find stuff you never thought would exist now is one of the myriad reasons I absolutely love YouTube.
