nostalgic, and still effective, edutainment
This material does seem a bit dated, so it’s easy to forget that this was a radical idea when it first came out — learning can be fun! It still is, thanks to the reissue of the material found on this two-disc set. Shortly after receiving a complimentary copy, my husband was singing along to old favorites and our toddler was having a grand old time learning the songs. All original 46 songs from the show are here, as well as the brand new “I’m Gonna Send Your Vote to College”, about the electoral college, and a lost song, “The Weather Show”. There are also three songs with the series’ only continuing characters, Scooter Computer and Mr. Chips.
You can view a full selection list or see items grouped into categories of Grammar Rock, Science Rock, Multiplication Rock, America Rock or Money Rock, and a jukebox capability allows you to make playlists of songs to be played in order or on shuffle. There’s a short trivia game with quizzes and word scrambles, puzzles, four music videos (by the Lemonheads and others) singing SHR songs to the SHR video, a featurette about the show’s Emmy wins, a Nike commercial using a SHR song, and fun, interesting commentary by several of the SHR team. This dvd version is terrific, demonstrating that the Schoolhouse Rock team is still just as dedicated to quality programming and education as it ever was. The accompanying booklet is packed with color and information — including the words to eleven songs.
Very nicely done and highly recommended, not only for nostalgic value, but for its continuing ability to inform and entertain.

Part of the American Consciousness
By Daniel L Edelen
Schoolhouse Rock is an unusual American cultural phenomenon. Nearly every person who grew up after the late Sixties is familiar with the series. How ubiquitous is it? I would predict that if you started humming “Conjunction Junction,” “I’m Just a Bill,” or “Three Is a Magic Number” in a room of a dozen people, three-quarters would know the reference and at least a couple would probably join in humming or singing the words.This is unimpeachable stuff. To say that this 2-disc set is definitive is to do injustice to the word “definitive.” EVERYTHING you would ever want to know about Schoolhouse Rock is here. All forty-six cartoons ever done for the series are included, even the “Scooter Computer and Mr. Chips” series that looked at computers. The electoral college toon that was done later is part of this collection, too.The extras on the second disc are outstanding. In addition to Scooter Computer and the rarely seen “The Weather Show,” you get a behind the scenes look at the electoral college song, a Top 20 countdown of the best in the series, a puzzle game that features the songs, four music videos of the songs arranged by contemporary pop/rock groups, a feature on the Emmy Awards won by the series, commentary by the creators, and more.The navigation design of the DVD is superb. Only want to see the “Multiplication Rock” or “America Rock” toons? You can select the specific series you want, play all within a series, or pick each specific toon from a series. You can also choose to play all forty-six toons or just the ones chosen by fans as the top ones. There’s a built-in shuffle feature as well. Every DVD should be this easy to navigate and use.Even the booklet that comes with this edition is helpful. The lyrics for the top ten toons are included as is the history of Schoolhouse Rock. A chapter breakdown is included at the end of the booklet.Schoolhouse Rock is virtually impervious to review due to its unbiquitous nature within a whole generation or two of Americans. The cleverness of the animation enlivens the topic discussed, not to mention holding the attention of young children. The songs are exceptionally catchy; I’m still amazed at how they managed to do such a great job marrying the Preamble of the Constitution with a hummable melody. Definitely a reflection of the musical styles of the day, songs like “Verb: That’s What’s Happening” (done in the style of the soundtrack of “Shaft”) or “The Preamble” (70s Folk/Rock) capture the era perfectly. It makes those of us who grew up in those days misty-eyed for a return of that AM radio sound to today’s music.If you have kids (or are just nostalgic at heart), this DVD is essential. I’m using it as homeschool material for our kids. When my son sings the songs, it’s great to know another generation will appreciate the merits of Schoolhouse Rock. No question, this 30th anniversary edition of Schoolhouse Rock is truly worthy of five stars.
