The Kid Should See This

Loaf of Bread, Container of Milk, Stick of Butter

How do you remember a list of items? Repetition can help. In I Can Remember (1972), a classic animation by Jim Simon from Sesame Street‘s fourth season, a little girl demonstrates how she remembers a loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter while running an errand for her mother.

The girl assures her mother she can remember and recites the list as she heads to the store. She briefly forgets the butter when reciting the list to the grocer, but is able to remember it and bring the items back home.

Read how many times Sesame Street has referenced I Can Remember within the show.
