"Let's Meet PBS Kids in the Park"

Gordon, from “Sesame Street,” will be one of the big names of kid TV at this year’s PBS Kids in the Park.

Now, if Orman doesn’t look familiar, it could be because you’re of my generation and my generation’s Gordon was the original Gordon, Matt Robinson. Orman, however, has been playing the part since 1973, which makes him a lot of people’s Gordon. (It’s unlikely that he’ll be talking about it here, but Orman also played the title role in the 1973 film “Willie Dynamite.” Even more impressed now?)

This year’s edition of the annual free outdoor event moves to Military Park and includes “Habla Blah Blah,” a sing-along concert, and meet-and-greets with such favorites as Curious George, Elmo, and Clifford. Details here.
