Does anyone remember this back way back when ABC had brains and thought it might be good to teach kids about something instead of rotting their brains with the garbage on TV now?

My favorite was Grammar rock

Those are my favorites, the 12 Multiplication Rocks songs. I've used those with students learning to multiply and it really helps, plus they love to sing along with them and thereby learn multiplication tables. I have to say I disagree about television being garbage. There are large number of educational shows on several stations, way more than were available during my childhood. And even t.v. that isn't educational can be very entertaining from an adult POV, so if it's making me laugh or reflect in some way I can't call it garbage.

I can guage whether someone is my age or not by simply asking them if they watched Schoolhouse Rock when they were kids.

Does anyone else remember watching Big Blue Marble or Make a Wish when they were kids? Anyone remember watching Hot Dog episodes in school? How about the commercials where they tried to promote healthy eating. I remember one where it ended with "hanker for a hunka cheese".

Conjunction Junction....whats that function?

man,Saturday morning with a chocolate milk and cartoons...Id still do it now as a adult except for the fact that these days any cartoons that do play on a Saturday morning now suck!Seems these days kids are subjected to prissy politically correct blah blah blah shows.

Bugs Bunny,Road Runner,Pink Panther...hell even the X men,those were the days....yeah I was kid back in the 70's- early 80's....still am at heart.

good thing about owning a computer,I can download those cartoons now.
