Format: DVD
Just get the 30th Anniversary Edition of Schoolhouse Rock instead of this one. This "Election Collection" only sports 14 songs from the 40+ classics that were made back in the day of educating children through Saturday morning cartoon shorts. The songs they do pick are of course themed for electoral stuff so you definitely will get classics like "I'm Just a Bill" as well as government/patriotic related stuff like "Shot Heard Around the World." While you do get a brand-new exclusive song, "Presidential Minute", you are shortchanging yourself considering the 30th Anniversary Edition is only a few dollars more and give you almost four times the content.

Another interesting snippet in the Election Collection includes an election tracking kit so your little ones can follow the upcoming election using stickers and stuff. So if you really want your kid to get into the election process I suppose that may make it worth it. Also the DVD has an english 5.1 dolby track and a spanish track (no info on if it's stereo, mono or what). In the end I have to say just get the 30th Anniversary Edition and give your kids and yourself a much bigger bang for the buck.

I use it in my 2nd grade class. The students LOVE it, and they understand it. Too bad they don't make them any more.

I watched this DVD because I am absolutely obsessed with Schoolhouse Rock, and politics, so it only seemed fair to give it a shot.
It gives some of the great classics, such as "I'm just a bill" and the "I'm gonna send your vote to college"
The graphics are restored, and the sound is as well, so it looks and sounds great.

The only thing I was disappointed in was the 2 "surprise" endings. They weren't amazing. Like 20 seconds, and nothing too spectacular.

Of course the DVD comes with a few things, like an election tracking kit, which, seeing how the election isn't until Tuesday, I haven't used yet. Looks cool though. Lots of stickers. =]

Overall, worth the money. Especially since it includes the classics.

"Schoolhouse Rock" was a great learning tool for my children when it was on TV during the 70's. Now my children have children of their own, and I was happy to share this latest Election Collection DVD with my three grandsons. The tunes are catchy, the video is fun, and the educational benefit is huge (and painless). Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could get rid of a lot of the political ads on TV and replace them with segments from this DVD! Then we'd all learn something and enjoy doing it.

I should have a sucker tattoo on my forehead. Schoolhouse rock completionists should buy this DVD. Otherwise, stay away. The menus are cute, and arranged strangely. Some of these segments fit nicely, but some don't at all. If, however, you're interested in a new perspective on an old set - you're not getting much here. I'm a little upset about the price - under $10 could've pushed this further, but I did but all of the VHS sets around $10. I figured that I was already in this thing above $50 anyways, so another $15...

The new song is cute, and clocks in at about 60 seconds. It does fit nicely in with all of the other pieces of the pie. (Know how busy prepositions, the money segments, and even Mr. Morton kinda don't quite fit?) This harkens back to that late 70's feel...

As for the surprise ending? I don't wanna spoil it, but they're NEARLY identical.

Worth it for the completionist, not so much for anyone else...
