Schoolhouse Rock At 40, That's What's Happening!

Email a Friend
The educational and fun 1970's Saturday morning cartoon 'Schoolhouse Rock' turns 40 years old this year.

From “I’m Just a Bill” to “Three Is a Magic Number,” Schoolhouse Rock taught millions of children about grammar, civics and math -- without many of them even realizing it. As the series celebrates its fortieth anniversary, we talk with Schoolhouse Rock composer Bob Dorough about writing those catchy tunes. Plus, contributor Faith Salie, the rapper Skee-Lo, and listeners talk (and sing!) about the lessons they learned from the musical cartoons.
