From 1973-86 and 1993-96 (and then intermittently until its final cancellation in 2001), ABC's Emmy-winning, animated Schoolhouse Rock! harnessed the power of music to educate children of all ages. A series of three-minute animated shorts with infectious music, witty lyrics, and colorful animation, Schoolhouse Rock! aired amid ABC's Saturday morning block of kids' programming, and the productions were designed to teach the basic principles of grammar, arithmetic, history, science, government, computers, and money management. Compiled for DVD in 2008, The Election Collection aims to introduce youngsters to essential civics while charming oldsters who may not have seen these little gems in decades. The original Schoolhouse creators -- executive producer George Newall, producer Radford Stone, and music director Bob Dorough -- collaborated again on this collection, which features the entertaining new-to-DVD song "Presidential Minute" with two surprise endings and an exclusive Election Tracking Kit with stickers.
