"Schoolhouse Rock!" is a series of animated musical educational short films that aired during Saturday morning children's programming on U.S. television network ABC. Topics covered include grammar, science, economics, history, mathematics, and politics. The series aired between 1972 and 1986, and infrequently during the 1990s and 2000s, with new shows created between 1993 and 1996 until its cancellation by ABC in 2001. (Wikipedia)
Schoolhouse Rock is a great little show that can be educational as well as entertaining. This is the sort of think your parents saw as kids back in the 70's. If you ask them, you might find it to have been a favorite of theirs.
*Note* - Red titles are Toonsurfer's personal favorites of the bunch.
