Highlighted Site of the Week – The 40th Anniversary of Schoolhouse Rock!
Debuted on Jan. 13, 1973
As someone who grew up in, let’s say, an earlier television era, Schoolhouse Rock has always held a place of honor in my memory. I learned many things about grammar and American government in these three-minute video gems. This month marks the 40th anniversary of their debut on ABC TV.
Here are a pair of nice tributes to the anniversary: “’I’m just a bill:’ Schoolhouse Rock, 40 years later, still teaches generations” by Kevin Bohn in CNN Politics and “On Schoolhouse Rock’s 40th Anniversary, A Canadian Reflects” by Dana Grinshpan in Government Executive.
To me, the quintessential “America Rock” was I’m Just a Bill. Take a look!
There are so many others. Don’t miss the official Schoolhouse Rock! YouTube Channel where you can relive your favorite memories with Presidential Minute, Conjunction Junction, Figure Eight, I’m Gonna Send Your Vote to College, and many more.
Have a wonderful weekend!
