"School House Rock" Really does Rock!!


Ok, taking time out to blog about one of my kids favorite DVDs...All right I admit, it also is one of my favorites! School House Rock really does rock!!

In the mid-70s, ABC TV aired these short cartoons, which taught a generation about government, history, grammar, science, and math. I think most of us that watched them in the 70's still remember many of the lyrics. I know they all came back to me as we have watched them over and over again.

The other thing that struck me funny was, guess what? We really DID learn great things from these short little cartoons with jazzy tunes.

"As your body grows bigger
Your mind grows flowered
It's great to learn
'Cause knowledge is power!

It's Schoolhouse Rocky
That chip off the block
of your favorite schoolhouse"

Here is one of my favorite School House Rocks Videos: "Conjunction Junction"


Here is a website where all of the lyrics for all of the songs are listed.

Maybe it is time for you to share these with your kids and grandkids and travel down memory lane.
We have the Special 30th Anniversary Edition of School House Rock. We ordered ours at Amazon.com

  2. Jenni, this would make a great gift for a very good price. All I know, is that we have a lot of fun watching and singing to them together. Also, I can see my kids learning from them just as I did all of those years ago.
