"Schoolhouse Rock!: Verb: That's What's Happening" is just as much entertaining as when I was a kid
25 June 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Since I've been recently reviewing superhero-related stuff here on this site, I thought I'd now comment on a "Schoolhouse Rock!" short that had something similar when it first aired back in the '70s. Using a soul/rock inspired song written by Bob Dorough and performed by Zachary Sanders, this cartoon depicts an African-American boy going to the downtown theatre to watch the afternoon matinée of the feature called Verb who is a superhero of his race doing things like getting nouns and making them into verbs while he also saves this little boy in his dreams and then plays baseball at the end. As with most of these things that were originally shown after various Saturday morning programs on ABC, "Verb: That's What Happening" entertains plenty with the song and images used to depict whatever lessons meant to be taught and learned to the various kids viewing these like yours truly when he was a little kid during this time. So on that note, this short is highly recommended.
