It's hard to overestimate the effect Schoolhouse Rock had on anyone who was a child between 1973 and 1985. Forty-one three-minute educational cartoons set to original songs, they were the original music videos, and they taught countless kids the difference between adjectives ("Unpack Your Adjectives") and adverbs ("Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here"), how to multiply ("Three Is a Magic Number"), basic principles of science ("Do the Circulation," "Interplanet Janet"), and American civics ("I'm Just a Bill," "The Preamble"). All of the original songs are here, plus four Money Rock songs--"Dollars and Sense" and "Where the Money Goes" are as classic as any of the original standouts--and four tracks from the short-lived Scooter Computer & Mr. Chips series (which, unlike the rest of the Schoolhouse Rock songs, can be dated by the proto-new-wave-influenced instrumentation). A classic collection of (mostly) timeless songs that shaped the minds of a generation or two: how many box sets can you say that about? --Randy Silver

If you grew up in the 70s you remember Schoolhouse Rock. Those little three minute cartoons really grew on you. My daughter is 9 and she loves this set... we listen to it in the car all the time. I have two small gripes, though: as other reviewers have noted this is not the entire collection. There are four Money Rock songs that are only available on the Best Of Schoolhouse Rock disc. Also, this four disc set would fit on two discs with room to spare (even with the additional four Money Rock songs). Spreading it over four compact discs smacks of gouging and that kept me from giving it five stars. But it is a great set and there's nothing quite like it. Recommended if you have kids (they'll dig it) or were a child of the 70s.

Though SHR was before my time, I still heard the songs when we watched an America Rock tape in my eigth grade history class. I absolutly loved them. When I saw that there was a complete box set, i asked for it for x-mas. I now own it and love it. The songs are great. While America Rock is, in my opinion, the best overall, science rack has the best music and Grammer rock is the most helpful in terms of actually teaching something. Though this set isn't cheap, it is well worth it considering you get four classic CDs, and intersting liner notes that tell the story of SHR. This is a must have collection for anyone who remebers SHR, or wants their children to remember it.

Anyone born before 1980 remembers the time when cartoons were only played during the day on Saturday mornings (before Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Toon Disney came along). Your Mom couldn't blast you out of bed before 7 a.m. on a weekday, but your internal 'toon clock got you up at 6:30 a.m. to watch Saturday morning cartoons. And inbetween shows, there was a brilliant little series of short musical toons called "Schoolhouse Rocks". Back in the days before Hooked On Phonics or Baby Einstein, these shorts taught multiplying, english grammar, history, and science, all set to fun music and cool blues tunes. In this clever boxed set, you get all four series on CD, averaging about 12 to 14 songs per CD. It's a reasonable price for a boxed set (around 45-50 bucks)and totally worth it! Even kids today know "Conjunction Junction" and "I'm Just a Bill", but haven't heard "Naughty Number Nine", "No More Kings", "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get You Adverbs", or "Tax Man Max". It's fun to listen to these songs and remember the words. I bought these for my kids to listen to in the car, and now a new generation is adopting them as their own. We love them, and so will you.

I love school house rock. All of the songs are great, even the songs I didn't think were all that wonderful when I first got the CDs. But one flaw remains. This is NOT the complete school house rock songs. If you want the other half of money rock, you'll have to dish out another 12$. I just went to the library and checked out the Best of School House Rock and just kept on renewing it.

I bought the first 3 audio CD's individually and I absolutly LOVE THEM!! I wish this four disc set were available when I made my purchases. Not only do they bring back great memories of those Saturday mornings in my childhood, but perhaps it was ABC's free version of today's "Hooked on Phonics" and even today is a great teaching tool. This set even has extra songs that my individual CD's do not, I'll not buy this set now, but you can bet if something should happen to my 3 discs (heaven forbid) it'll be at the top of my shopping list!!

How excited am I that other adults listen to schoolhouse rock! I have "schoolhouse rock rocks" and a friend lent me the box set - How cool is that? I loved to hear all the songs that weren't on my "rock" disc! I would much rather listen to these songs from my childhood than music from the 80's!

...just wanted to comment on what Peter from Georgia said about all these songs fitting on two CDs rather than four -- this is true! but the reason for the four disks is that they seperate four different Schoolhouse Rock! segments -- Grammer, Science, Math, and Government. Kind of. Like, why is *electricity, electricity* on the same disk with the Grammer stuff and not the Science? I completely understand your point, just thought i'd clarify...
I grew up on these songs, and yes, this is where i learned the parts of speech, the concept of Infinity, and the Preamble to the Constitution, not only the words, but the meaning behind it!!
I still have a tape that i made in the late 80's of a few of the SHR! songs by recording them OFF OF THE TELEVISION and then making copies for friends who shared my enthusiasm.
I've hummed, sung, shared, and connected over these songs for 25 years (YEESH!!!) and i'm REALLY glad that it's still around.
If you just can't get enough of SHR!, you might want to check out the original-resurgence cover album by AltRockers Moby, Ween, Blind Melon, and The Lemonheads, among others, called Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks...
And we can't forget that there wouldn't BE a Schoolhouse Rock! if there weren't a Saturday Morning -- if yer into GenXSlackerRock, check out Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits, which came out just previous to the SHR!R release, and spurred the mid-90s revival of all things Saturday Morning.
