The Electric Company that premiered on PBS in 2009 was the first version of this show. The first version premiered in 1971. The first version of this show was mostly known for stories featuring Spider-Man and occasional appearances by Bill Cosby. As this was PBS, the appearances of Spider-Man and Bill Cosby were supposed to be educational, though kids were so excited by the appearance of one of their favorite superheroes that they probably forgot the lesson that the story was supposed to teach. The 2009 version of this show started with a four-episode mini-marathon in January of 2009. The show was then shown only on a weekly basis with a new episode every Friday. In September of 2009, they began having a new episode on a daily basis. The show was produced by the company called Sesame Workship. This workshop canceled the show in April of 2011. Sometimes, the 2009 show was titled as The New Electric Company to distinguish it from its 1971 version. The 2009 version was part of PBS Kids Go!
