'Schoolhouse Rock' was a Saturday morning staple for those kids in the '70s and '80s who still had Saturday morning cartoons.  Even the '90's kids were exposed to it's lessons in the classroom and maybe still on the ending of the Saturday morning cartoon era.

It acted as short filler between cartoon shows as a way to throw education into the mindless mix of cartoons.

Bob Dorough, who wrote many songs featured on 'Schoolhouse Rock', has passed at the age of 94.  He lived a long life with a huge impact.  Let's reminisce on his contributions to fun, educational songs that 2+ generations have learned from.

Multiplication Rock

One of Dorough's contributions to the series was the 'Multiplication Rock' math series.  He often wrote and performed the songs for Schoolhouse Rock.  So, not only do we know his songs but his voice as well.

Grammar Series

Dorough was the songwriter for 'Conjunction Junction' and 'Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here'.  Sing it with me now!
