Education made for fun.
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
