A Classic
16 October 2008 | by Guitar-8See all my reviews

While CBS had In The News & NBC never attempted anything until 1978 with The Metric Marvels, ABC had a classic with all those Schoolhouse Rock cartoons. But only on Sundays, the full credits were shown after "Make A Wish" or "Amimals, Animals, Animals". And the songs heard on the full credits; The Good Eleven, Lolly Lolly Lolly, The Preamble or Not so Dry Bones.

My favorite of the bunch will always be "Sufferin 'Till Sufferage", women's rights to vote.

Jack Sheldon's the best performer of the series ad Bill, Conjunction Junction, Rufux Xavier Sasparilla, Energy Globe.
