“Schoolhouse Rock!” The Election Collection

0 Submitted by on Mon, 22 September 2008, 08:27

Remember Saturday mornings past at the ABC Network, when a series of three-minute animated shorts harnessed the power of music to educate children of all ages? From 1973 until 1986 and the early nineties, “Schoolhouse Rock!” used catchy music and sassy lyrics to teach kids the basic principles of grammar, arithmetic, history, science, government, computers and money management.

The show became a smash hit and won four daytime Emmys (Outstanding Children’s Instructional Series, 1976,1978, 1979 and 1980) and one daytime Emmy nomination (Outstanding Children’s Instructional Series, 1977) for its charming and informative musical lessons.

From the original creators of “Schoolhouse Rock!”, executive producer George Newall, producer Radford Stone and music director Bob Dorough, “Schoolhouse Rock!” The Election Collection will introduce youngsters to important information, refresh the holes left by high school civics classes or provide a moment of pure nostalgia for grown up fans of the show.
