Try to contain your excitement. :p
Even as a wee tyke, this show bored me so much. Maybe that's because I had no interest watching other kids play. *shrug* The only thing worth watching was the segment at the end where she (whoever was hosting your particular version) would say the different names. I did like the theme song, too, it should be noted, for posterity and whatnot.
There's another Romper Room record in the middle. ("another" meaning the same one)

Thanks for your copy, Jennifer Young. :)
John Jacob Jingleheimer...Smith? Is Schmidt too hard for them? I thought Sesame Street was about not talking down to kids. ;)
Hmm, that little note at the bottom makes me think maybe this isn't performed by the entire original voice cast... 'Hey, that's Maria! No wait, maybe it's Arthur Shimkin.' John Jacob Jingleheimer Shimkin! :p

A "classic" album, folks...
Wasn't aware his name was Irwin, though he may be one of many disco ducks. *shrug* Why is he wearing pants and she is quite um...pantsless? I guess they couldn't have just had her tail sticking out.
New future releases? Is that just presumption or some sort of temporal issue? Well, there was at least one more...
This is another album, despite it looking like the back of the first cover. I was just reminded of an episode of The Jeffersons where George starts going disco dancing with Helen. It's amazing how much dancing they did in that. Seemed like an easy way to avoid writing more dialogue. Heh.
It has a comic as the back cover:
I know you're just dying to read it, so here's a better look...
I knew there was more than one Disco Duck and they say so themselves! (without even realizing it!) Notice it says At Irwin the Disco Ducks' discotheque. I guess they're all named Irwin, too. So weird! ;)
Oh, and it's a cliffhanger. B'oh!

What? Symbolism? Nah...
I suppose these types of albums, despite being plentiful, always had a limited appeal. (mostly for stag parties, etc...) Not my thing, but it's definitely interesting and sort of a snapshot of the days where double entendres were good enough for most, rather than the incredibly vulgar stuff you see/hear nowadays which most seem to like. (do people need to say the F word every three seconds to be funny? I think not!)

I try not to post too many mainstream-ish albums, but this cover is so cool, I just had to!
Reminded me of the ye olde Santa Cruz Skateboards 'screaming hand' logo, designed by Jim Phillips:

Fun, eye-catching, cow-y cover. :)
And hey, it's a gatefold!
I don't know if "A Piece of Paper" was actually a smash hit, as the cover claims, but it sure is good! I listened to it three times in preparing this post. :) Check it out!
His voice reminds me of Neil Innes' at times, which is a very good thing!
