* BlushingFace: It happened to Mr. Morton in "The Tale of Mr. Morton" when he saw Pearl out of his window, the girl in "Telegraph Line" when she couldn't read her lines, and Max in "Tax Man Max" when Joy commented on his suit.

* CannotSpitItOut: Poor [[ShrinkingViolet Mr. Morton]] blushed, fainted, and even ran away (twice) instead of talking to Pearl.



* CrushBlush: In "The Tale of Mr. Morton," Mr. Morton's entire face turned red when he saw Pearl out of his window.



* DissonantSerenity: In "Unpack Your Adjectives", asked to describe her trip to eager friends, the protagonist promptly unpacks... "frustrating" and "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=gEGQUgWBQL4 Mother Necessity]]" (America Rock, various) - The most elaborate of the segments, in which four of the regular performers (Sheldon, Dorough, Blossom Dearie & Essra Mohawk) each sing about different inventions. Notable in that this was a complicated process in the pre-Internet era; the producers had to travel to four different studios across the country to record a couple of lines at a time.

** In a subversion of the trope, however, as soon as the singer and her turtle run away from the bear, the bear just shrugs his shoulders and saunters off.

** On compilations released through Creator/{{Disney}}, the chef of Conjunction Junction Diner[[note]]the same chef who burnt his hand in "Telegraph Line"[[/note]] always gives a different response when Rocky asks, "Hey, Chef! What's the special today?"

** Although it's possible in that case, given the profile of the women's rights movement, they chose not to create something that would end up as ValuesDissonance.

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 most animated shows at the time and presented a hip, inclusive, fast-paced and funny (often [[DeadpanSnarker downright snarky]]) attitude to learning.

A series of educational short cartoons -- so short that they fit in the space of a single commercial break -- aired from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s on [[SaturdayMorningCartoon Saturday mornings]] on Creator/{{ABC}}.

Back in the day (1972, to be specific), Saturday morning children's programming was [[MoralGuardians supposed]] to be at least tangentially educational, and MerchandiseDriven advertising was severely limited. Networks couldn't advertise things related to the cartoons they were airing in those timeslots, so there was an opening for educational shorts even after running through [[AdjacentToThisCompleteBreakfast cereal commercials]].

Episodes initially fell under one of four headings, in order of production: Multiplication Rock, Grammar Rock, America Rock (history, mostly released around the 1976 American Bicentennial) and Science Rock. 1983 saw an earnest but ill-fated attempt at Computer Rock (''aka'' Scooter Computer & Mr. Chips) and in 1995/96 the original team reunited for the much more successful Money Rock. In addition, two new Grammar Rock segments ("Busy Prepositions" and "The Tale of Mr. Morton") were added. In 2002 the team reunited again to produce two new America Rock segments ("I'm Gonna Send Your Vote to College" and "Presidential Minute") as a MilestoneCelebration. In 2009, yet another reunion produced Earth Rock, about environmental issues.
