This indispensable two-disc set is a nostalgic blast from the past, reviving for the DVD generation the Emmy Award-winning Schoolhouse Rock that aired Saturday mornings on ABC from 1973 to 1985. Its irresistible three-minute ditties introduced the basic concepts of grammar, science, math, and history. Songs such as "Three Is a Magic Number," "Conjunction Junction, What's Your Function," and "I Am a Bill" (which was affectionately spoofed on The Simpsons) are era-defining classics poised for discovery by a new generation. This collection contains all 46 Schoolhouse Rock songs, including the long-lost, legally entangled "The Weather Song," and a new song no doubt inspired by the 2000 Presidential election, "I'm Gonna Send Your Vote to College." Other archival treasures include four "Scooter Computer and Mr. Chips" songs and the Nike commercial set to "Three is a Magic Number." A tad dated, perhaps, but it's reassuring to know that after all these years, Schoolhouse still rocks! Donald Liebenson
