"A Noun Is a Person, Place or Thing" is another excellent entry in the "Schoolhouse Rock!" series
21 October 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Written and sung by Lynn Ahrens, the ditty "A Noun Is a Person, Place or Thing" is an excellent composition with accompanying animation of a girl demonstrating her adventures via the four verses in a perfect amalgamation of sounds and images. Once again, "Schoolhouse Rock" has presented an entertaining way to make education fun for children in between the cartoons ABC presented on Saturday mornings during the '70s. Though perhaps a little dated with mentions of The Beatles, The Monkees, Chubby Checker, and that the drugstore record machine is only ten cents, "A Noun Is a Person, Place or Thing" still entertains overall with it's cheerful way of telling us how important it is to learn what nouns are and their usefulness it is to everyday language. So this musical animated short gets another 10 from me. Guess I'll review another one now that I just rediscovered from YouTube...
