WARNING - SPOILERS BELOW.

The Digest From the official Press Release:

 

Rediscover  the infectious music, witty lyrics and colorful animation from the Emmy-winning animated series that rocked America for more than a decade when Schoolhouse Rock! The Election Collection comes to DVD September 23, 2008 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.  As all eyes turn to the presidential election, it couldn’t be a better time for this collection of classic election-themed tunes including “I'm Just a Bill,” “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” and “I’m Gonna Send Your Vote to College,” the timeless songs  that taught a generation of Americans that learning can be fun! 

 

The limited edition DVD also features the entertaining new to DVD song “Presidential Minute” with two surprise endings and an exclusive Election Tracking Kit with stickers to help viewers keep track of the actual voting results in all 50 states.

 

Remember Saturday mornings past at the ABC Network, when a series of three-minute animated shorts harnessed the power of music to educate children of all ages?  From 1973 until 1986 and the early nineties, Schoolhouse Rock! used catchy music and sassy lyrics to teach kids the basic principles of grammar, arithmetic, history, science, government, computers and money management. The show became a smash hit and won four daytime Emmys (Outstanding Children's Instructional Series, 1976,1978,

1979 and 1980) and one daytime Emmy nomination (Outstanding Children’s Instructional Series, 1977) for its charming and informative musical lessons.

 

From the original creators of Schoolhouse Rock!, executive producer George Newall, producer Radford Stone and music director Bob Dorough, Schoolhouse Rock! The Election Collection will introduce youngsters to important information, refresh the holes left by high school civics classes or provide a moment of pure nostalgia for grown up fans of the show.

 

 

 

 

The Dish

And Rediscover it,I did. NOt only with myself, but with my baby girl who took it to her kindergarten class and shared it. A whole new generation  hooked! I was amazed that I could sing each and every song as if I heard them yesterday. If I can complain about anything it would be the "newer" songs and episodes. 

Despite my dissappoint with the newer songs, I still thoroughly enjoyed myself as did my daughter and her friends. Now every night we must watch the funky "Sufferin' Til Suffrage"; the meandering "I'm Just A Bill" and " The Preamble"
