I was reading a submission to the Retroist the other day about Richard Scarry’s cartoons on Netflix. That reminded me of a software title from 1984 for the Coleco ADAM computer called “Richard Scarry’s Best Electronic Word Book Ever!” The bit of software starred “Lowly Worm” driving in his apple-shaped car. You steer him to different locations in the town using the ColecoVision joystick. And while in the location, say the construction site, you drive to different points in the site like a bulldozer, press the joystick fire button, and you will see the word “bulldozer” printed on the screen along with a sound effect or music.
