Back in the 70s (and 80s), on Saturday mornings, ABC broadcast hour after hour animated shows dedicated to a young audience, during intermissions would run 'Schoolhouse House' which were short 2 - 3 minute animated tutorials about how American government works, or how to develop basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills.

It was the music from 'Schoolhouse Rock' that made the animated shorts so charming and smart and Mr. Bob Dorough was that guy who knew how to write snappy songs so infectious that fans referenced in Hip Hop to political news shows and comedy shows.
