Adjectives - School House Rock Style

One of my favorite memories as a child, was waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons.  Yes, this is dating me.   In the olden days, there weren't cartoon channels.  The only time a child enjoyed cartoons was Saturday mornings or go early to see a movie.  Cartoons were shown before movies, in the olden days.  So much more enjoyable than the 20 minutes of previews that you see today.  If you woke up before 7 a.m., all you saw on your t.v. was colored bars because television channels weren't operating 24 hours a day  "back in the day".  Between cartoons was a 3 minute mini-lesson cartoon by School House Rock.  Each video had a catchy song that I swear stuck in your head the rest of the day, some of the tunes I can still sing as an adult.  Many adults today can thank a little engineer guy in a cartoon for helping them remember what a conjunction was.  I loved the adjective video.

I LOVE YOUR POST!!!! Those commercials were some of my best childhood memories. "I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill and I'm sitting here on capital hill..." is now running through my head.

Thank you! Yes, I love the "I'm just a bill", too. In fact, I played it the other day because I love the catchy tune.
