Oh, they might believe the 'lectricity.  But I don't think they quite appreciate the tiny black and white television experience, the rotary telephone, or the utter lack of videogames.  Not to mention cordboards!


Color tellys were _available_ ... but not everybody had one in '64.  I think we may have gotten our first in '65.  (Once you'd seen an episode of Flipper in color at a friend's house, it really sucked to go back to watching it in B&W at home.)
