Knowledge is Power!

School House Rock!
We recently saw School House Rock Live! performed by All Children’s Theater. What a blast-it brought back fond memories of watching Saturday morning cartoons with my brother. We would jam to “I’m just a Bill,” “Conjunction Junction,” “Three is a Magic Number,” and more. Although adverbs and multiplication may be a bit advanced for my boys to fully understand, they still enjoyed the groovy tunes and great performances just as I did when I was a kid.

Schoolhouse Rock! (started in 1973) was a Saturday morning TV series of animated songs about math, grammar, science, history, and politics. The show taught kids that knowledge is not only fun but also that knowledge is power.
