"Figure Eight" is one of several cherished memories I have of "Schoolhouse Rock"
21 October 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I just rediscovered this animated musical short-part of the "Schoolhouse Rock!" series that aired in between the cartoons on ABC Saturday morning-on YouTube. They bring such great memories of watching these educational but entertaining shorts while I was a kid during the '70s. This one-with lyrics by Bob Dorough as sung by Blossom Dearie-depicts a little girl dreaming of skating the figure eight while doing so on thin ice. Now, while she does fall down, she also gets up jumping while shaking as the music changes from solo piano ballet to up-tempo pop. And the beginning-with the children going to a one-room building-also began the "Schoolhouse Rock!" series proper when I first watched these as a child. After all these years, these animated musical shorts are still worth seeing so on that note, I heartily recommend these for the new generation seeking fun in education. Guess I'll review another one...
