We follow a family of bears, known as the Berenstain Bears, as they figure out life together. With friendly neighbors and close friends, the journey is never boring. Inspired by the book series written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
Each themed season had an opening of its own when they originally aired. In 1977, the kids entering the schoolhouse in "Figure Eight" was used. A few years later, the song including Schoolhouse Rocky seen on the VHS compilations was used. The DVDs exclude it but the 30th Anniversary Edition kept the tune of it for the menu's intro to Disc One and the schoolhouse footage for Disc Two. In video releases recurring series singer, Bob Dorough was the voice of the jukebox announcing each upcoming short while Jack Sheldon's conductor from "Conjunction Junction" was the Chef announcing each special (leading to the title).

I was actually a kid during the original days of School house rock and it taught me a great deal. Women's Sufferage, Manifest Destiny, the colonization of America, and the American Revolution were so much more interesting when put to song. I know what a magical number 3 can be, and I know that AND, BUT, and OR are conjunctions. I learned about Inventions, electricity, and all sorts of great stuff. I highly recommend School House Rock for anybody who wants a trippy trip down memory lane. Oooh! Buy School House Rock Rocks too. It's a CD with all sorts of alternative artists doing School House Rock covers. Blind Melon's version of Three the Magic Number is awesome!
