"Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here" was another educationally entertaining "Schoolhouse Rock!"
This musical animated short from "Schoolhouse Rock!", as written and performed by Bob Dorough, is catchy all the way through especially when the title keeps getting repeated. Lolly is the general store run by Lolly Sr., Lolly Jr., and the latter's pre-teen son where the adverbs are sold (though according to the kid, they're "absolutely free"). Emphasis is on how many of those adverbs have the "ly" added to make them so. There's also some humorous parodies of TV commercials when some spots are being filmed. These three-minute shorts were sure entertaining when first shown in between various Saturday morning ABC programs during the '70s and they're still fun to watch today as I did just now on YouTube. So on that note, "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here" can still sell it!
