Each themed season had an opening of its own when they originally aired. In 1977, the kids entering the schoolhouse in "Figure Eight" was used. A few years later, the song including Schoolhouse Rocky seen on the VHS compilations was used. The DVDs exclude it but the 30th Anniversary Edition kept the tune of it for the menu's intro to Disc One and the schoolhouse footage for Disc Two. In video releases recurring series singer, Bob Dorough was the voice of the jukebox announcing each upcoming short while Jack Sheldon's conductor from "Conjunction Junction" was the Chef announcing each special (leading to the title).

I remember first seeing "School House Rock" on the ABC channel back in the 90s. And to this day, it's still a memorable collection of animated songs.
The whole series revolves on 5 different teaching topics including: Grammar, Multiplication, Science, Economics, & American History. Every short would contain a different character or a cast of characters that resemble or present the topic they're talking about. And their guaranteed to be entertaining and educational at the same time. The songs are well thought up and the idea of the cartoons are creative in my opinion.
From home entertainment to elementary teaching, School House Rock has always been the right choice for giving out good lessons in basic learning. It's been a rare gem for thousands of people who grew up watching it & it's continuously being loved by newer generations today.
It's Family Friendly, Cool, Catchy, and Fantastic to watch time again and again. Perfect for the entire family to watch or to show in your grade school class room, just cause it's school related.
