* DissonantSerenity: In "Unpack Your Adjectives", asked to describe her trip to eager friends, the protagonist promptly unpacks... "frustrating" and "worst", all still in the cheery tune of the song.
** FromBadToWorse: The next lines are "Then I picked 'foggy' and/Then I picked 'soggy' and/Then I was ready/To tell them my tale..."

"worst". "Then I picked 'foggy' and/Then I picked 'soggy' and/Then I was ready/To tell them my tale..."" All this without breaking the adorably chipper tone of the song.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uqa1mT1XX0 Conjunction Junction]]" (Grammar Rock, Sheldon) - What's your function? A kindly railroad freight conductor explains conjunctions (ie. "and", "but", "or") in terms of 'hookin' up cars and makin' 'em run right', in possibly the most insanely catchy children's song of all time. Notable for the number of cover versions by big name jazz artists (both Harry Connick Jr. and Doctor John have covered it, to name two). Also gave the name to Rachel Maddow's Debunktion Junction segments, and was once parodied on ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' as "Dysfunction Junction", about the dangers of overprescribing ADHD medication. In 2013, the real railroad Norfolk Southern [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OL_V_y2zYR4 made a commercial with an updated tempo of the iconic song.]]

Besides the educational content, the series won accolades for the consistently high quality of the songs - besides Dorough and Ahrens, performers included genre legends Jack Sheldon, Blossom Dearie, Essra Mohawk and Grady Tate - and the overall cleverness of the lyrics and animation. Taking cues from ''Series/SesameStreet'' and other contemporary educational programming, ''Schoolhouse Rock'' avoided the blandness and conformity plaguing of most animated show at the time and presented a hip, inclusive, fast-paced and funny (often [[DeadpanSnarker downright snarky]]) attitude to learning.
