School House Rock – Learning Made Fun
Remember on Saturday mornings when you would be watching your favorite cartoons then in between you would get a quick lesson. Only they were so good you wouldn't even know you were learning!
Thank god for Schoolhouse Rock. It is probably one of the main reasons that I know some of the stuff that I know. Who would think that in the middle of eating a bowl of corn pops and watching Bugs Bunny I would retain a little information. Whether it was history, math, english, that doesn't matter, the point is it was a fun easy way to get kids to learn things. It's a shame that it's no longer on the air anymore. It ran from 1973-2009. Thanks to this modern era though, you can own them all! You can find anything on Amazon, including these. So awesome.
Now we all probably have a favorite edition of the show. Who can forget that bill sitting on Capital Hill? Conjunction- Junction, My Hero Zero, The Shot Heard Round The World and so many more. A very ingenious idea. Catchy songs that get in your head that are actually information that is helpful. Personally my favorite one will always be the bill one, but I love them all.
