Trivia

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).

The Noun Vignette
1 April 2006 | by dwacon-2See all my reviews

Anyone notice during the ditty about nouns that Chubby Checker was portrayed as Caucasian? Granted, you had the Beatles and Monkees portrayed as generic foursomes and that is fine. But to change Chubby Checker's race was quite the faux pas. That is, of course, assuming that it was not a deliberate oversight.

Overall, however, Multiplication Rock and the subsequent Schoolhouse Rock were very valuable to me as a kid trying to struggle through school. Waiting for a big-screen remake starring Jack Black and the kids of "School of Rock" -- or some other modification that would fill two hours of cineplex time...
