“Schoolhouse Rock” Turns 45

The Saturday morning cartoons of today do not hold a candle to the ones I watched as a kid, and one of my favorites celebrates a big birthday this month.

Class began for “Schoolhouse Rock” for the first time in 1973 and from then on you could count on the same thing every Saturday for the next several years: learning new things while listening to some undeniably catchy tunes.

My Top 3 “Schoolhouse Rock” tunes are below for your listening pleasure:

3) Verbs (“That’s What’s Happening”)

2) Pronouns (“Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla”)

1) Conjunctions (“Conjunction Junction”)

How about you? What’s your favorite “Schoolhouse Rock” anthem?
