Few other educational videos had the impact of Schoolhouse Rock songs. Every Saturday since the 1970s, kids have gathered around their TV sets to enjoy cartoons while learning about everything from science and math to civics and history. If you're feeling nostalgic for your own days of weekend cartoon watching, enjoy this list of the best Schoolhouse Rock songs - all of them are listed here for your enjoyment.

“It’s great to learn, ‘cause knowledge is power!” The early introductions for Schoolhouse Rock established right off the bat that these clips were more than mere entertainment. The series itself ran from 1973 until 1985, and each season was comprised of short animated films set to catchy songs. This online list of Schoolhouse Rock videos includes every single one of these songs, from the clips that ran on TV to those that were produced direct-to-video.

For many, these Schoolhouse Rock songs were the way they began to understand the American government (“I’m Just a Bill”). For others, these short films instilled a lifelong love of grammar and language (“Conjunction Junction,” “Verb: That’s What’s Happening”). And for kids struggling with math, “My Hero Zero” and “Three is a Magic Number” helped them feel just a little more confident in the classroom.

Now it gets tough: what is the best Schoolhouse Rock song ever? Watch the videos to refresh your memory, and then vote for all your favorites.
