Schoolhouse Rock


By TinSoldier - Posted on 09 November 2008

Who else here remembers Schoolhouse Rock??

I remember especially "I'm Just A Bill" and "Conjunction Junction" but I remember quite a few other ones as well.

Misty's post of Will Smith on Oprah where he recited the Preamble reminded me of this one in particular:

 

 

 Great visual educational aid for children. We have to find the one for "I'm Just A Bill". That's my favorite one.

You mean, like this?

"For those who plan with audacity and execute with vigor,
progress is the magnificent by product." 

I deleted mine. Tin found it. Thanks, I love that one.

Heh -- simu-posted!

I have all this stuff on DVD, too. 

"For those who plan with audacity and execute with vigor,
progress is the magnificent by product." 

*sigh*

Civics and knowledge and being smart used to be so cool. Here's to it being cool again.

"For those who plan with audacity and execute with vigor,
progress is the magnificent by product." 

I love your thread Tin. Such a good idea. Thank you.

Oh my gosh I remember that lol.

I think being intellectual is going to become a goal of people again.

I'm a HUGE fan of Schoolhouse Rock!  I have the entire collection in my media library.  When my daughter was in school we used them to help her study.  She earned good grades in her American Government class, and she admits that Schoolhouse Rock helped.   

Okay... America needs to get Schoolhouse Rock back on the Saturday Morning Networks and/or on Nick and Disney.  The only thing I could find about the history of Schoolhouse Rock and who owns it was this.

I'm surprised the networks don't see what  a goldmine this is... ABC, what's wrong with you? ...Someone should really get it back on their network.  

(Wait, did I say we need to get it back on the networks, because we really do? ;)

And then we needed some "Elbow Room."  :)

Well, I dont know about you, but I'm a "real" Republican, from "real" America, and that cartoon about the preamble only outlines the fact that Constitution is a Socialist Manifesto.

It uses phrases like:

"We the People"

"More Perfect Union"

and my god, the worst of them all:

"promote the general welfare"

This cartoon is socialist propaganda.

 

 

Kidding!

I love School House Rock!

And Socialism!

:)

This version might be more appropriate for the closing days of the Bush years, from The Simpsons...

LOL!!! That was great. 

 

That was just... wrong on so many levels!

But funny!

Senator Smith Collapses and Filibuster Ends

  Great movie, great actor.

Well, unfortunately for Mr. Smith, Mr. Merkley beat him in the election.

Heh.

But I agree, great movie and awesome actor, not to mention a fellow veteran.

"For those who plan with audacity and execute with vigor,

Well, I couldn't find a clip (without whipping out my own DVD and cutting it up) but here is a quote from one of the greatest actors of all time in one of the greatest movies of all time (which I now want to watch again):

George Bailey: Just a minute - just a minute. Now, hold on, Mr. Potter. You're right when you say my father was no businessman. I know that. Why he ever started this cheap, penny-ante Building and Loan, I'll never know. But neither you nor anyone else can say anything against his character, because his whole life was - why, in the twenty-five years since he and Uncle Billy started this thing, he never once thought of himself. Isn't that right, Uncle Billy? He didn't save enough money to send Harry to school, let alone me. But he did help a few people get out of your slums, Mr. Potter, and what's wrong with that? Why - here, you're all businessmen here. Doesn't it make them better citizens? Doesn't it make them better customers? You - you said - what'd you say a minute ago? They had to wait and save their money before they even ought to think of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what? Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they're so old and broken down that they... Do you know how long it takes a working man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about... they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book he died a much richer man than you'll ever be.
