  1. I watched Schoolhouse Rock every Saturday morning when I watched cartoons. My fav was Conjunction Junction (1973) Lolly,Lolly,Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here (1974) and I'm Just a Bill (1975). Those songs are still in my head after 37 years I find that increadable.

  4. I love Schoolhouse Rock even to this day--but this one bothers me--not as much as "Elbow Room" does (because they don't talk about the people who they jammed their elbows into to help themselves to the land . . . )

    why yes, I AM a joy to have at a party. why do you ask?!
