Schoolhouse Rock 30th Anniversary DVD

If you’re in your late 30s like I am, then your Saturday mornings were probably remarkably similar to mine. You likely woke up early to watch cartoons, and between cartoons, there would occasionally be more educational fare in the form of Schoolhouse Rock videos. I loved those videos, so when I saw this 30th anniversary DVD, I just had to have it.

The two DVDs in the box feature all the Schoolhouse Rock videos that were ever made, plus a couple of bonus songs (I’m Gonna Send Your Vote to College and The Weather Song). I honestly had no idea there were 46 songs because I only remembered a handful of the most famous ones (I’m Just a Bill, Conjunction Junction, Electricity, Get Your Adverbs Here, etc.), so it was GREAT to have all this music on the DVDs.

You can play the DVDs straight through, play a specific category (Grammar Rock, Science Rock, etc.) or shuffle the songs which was kinda nice. There’s also some hidden artwork and photos to look at.

Overall, I’m very pleased with this purchase. For $15, I was able to relive a significant part of my childhood and share these songs with my own son. Even though he doesn’t appreciate them nearly as much as I did/do, it was still fun to watch them together!
