“Schoolhouse Rock” is one of those generational staples that doesn’t really translate well to modern audiences. Kids these days will never understand the impact and importance of some of these songs. How such hits as “I’m Only A Bill” and “Three’s a Magic Number” helped teach numerous young persons the world over about subjects they may have otherwise ignored.
(Hell, one of my US History teachers in High School had the class watch “The Preamble” every single day for two weeks in order to ace our state-required test to accurately recite the opening of the Constitution. Which, honestly says more about the state of California public schools at the time that a decades-old cartoon did better to teach students than the SEVERAL years out of date text books.)
ANYHOW. Thanks to a Twitter user (remember when that used to be a thing?) named Danny Deraney, we get to see Jack Sheldon do a live performance of “Conjunction Junction.” So, enjoy!
