Best of Schoolhouse Rock

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Schoolhouse Rock was famous for its clever, insidiously catchy songs -- songs that were so entertaining, two generations of kids didn't realize they were learning as they memorized the tunes. For years, collections of the Schoolhouse Rock songs were unavailable, until Rhino released the four-disc box set Schoolhouse Rock! in 1996. It was a terrifically entertaining collection, bogging down only when it reached the latter-day '80s cuts, but it was too much for the average consumer.

Gen-Xers will certainly love the collection, but that misses the point -- although it certainly evokes the '70s, this is timeless music that is perfect for kids of any generation, since it both entertains and teaches.

    Old Generation

    I am excited to find this product... When I was younger, every Saturday morning we watched schoolhouse rock and still today I remember the songs. I'm going to utilize these DVDs, CDs with my grandchildren, they're fun and educational.

    WONDR-filled or WONDERFUL!

    This is great to learn the basics of education in fun easy and quick songs that stick to your brain. When I was younger instead of commercials on Saturday morning television they used Schoolhouse Rock as in-between shows to help us learn while having fun. You can sing along like karaoke, even. This is wonderful for kids of all ages. The music videos are on iTunes and are great for kids. My kids for the age of 4 to the age of 14 use them to remember things for school. My daughter came home the other day and said Schoolhouse Rock really helps her in Social Studies/History because in the song "ELBOW ROOM", which talks about expansion during the Lewis and Clark, Gold Rush, Louisiana Territory Purchase, it mentions "IT WAS A MANIFEST DESTINY". She figured out that Manifest Destiny had to do with expansion during the Lewis AND Clark times. It is in fact the belief that the United States was destined to expand from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean which was good, obvious and certain. These songs work wonders. My son aced a "Preamble" Pop Quiz where you had to fully write the preamble of the USA Constitution on LooseLeaf paper. THANK YOU SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK!

    My three-year old loves it! We listen to it in the car all the time.

    This CD is fun for both me and my 3-year-old. I remember the songs from my childhood, and my son loves the tunes and the lyrics. This CD contains the greats, like "Interjection," "Interplanet Janet," "I'm Just a Bill," and others. The only thing that bums me out is that a few favorite songs are missing -- "Mr. Morton," "Electricity," "Circulation," and others. These songs are all on the DVD, however (we own that too and love it).
