The Man Behind The Music Of 'Schoolhouse Rock' Has Died, Here's How He Shaped Our Childhood

Schoolhouse Rock was a requirement in our childhoods. Everyone of us watched these movies in class to learn about grammar and math, and if you didn't, I'm very sorry for your loss. The original series started all the way back in 1973, and continued until 1985. It was so beloved that they decided to bring it back in 1993 and re-release old episodes and make a few new ones so that new generations can learn all the important lessons. The idea for Schoolhouse Rock came about when David McCall realized his son was having a lot of trouble memorizing multiplication

7 Things You Didn't Know About Garfield That'll Almost Make You Like Mondays

He hates Mondays, he loves lasagna, and he's an expert at sarcasm. It doesn't take a genius to know exactly who I am talking about. Garfield the cat is one of the most iconic characters in the world.

Reading a comic strip in the newspaper or even if you were dedicated enough to buy the books didn't always mean that you

Sure, It Was A Wonderful Kind Of Day, But Where Would The Cast Of Arthur Be Now?

Elwood city was the place we all wanted to be. It was filled with the best cast of characters ever, and we would have given just about anything to attend Lakewood Elementary School with Arthur and his friends. The Read family was one that we all had a strong connection to. Whether you favored Arthur or D.W., you probably related to both of them on different days. The supporting characters on the show are iconic, and even though the show has been on for over 20 years, it's fun to imagine what would have happened to the characters if

Cartoons are pretty much a staple for every kid. We all had at least one that we were completely obsessed with, but more often than not, we watched dozens of different shows. The thing is, these cartoons aren't all as innocent as they may have seemed. There were a lot of moments or episodes that actually were a lot more scandalous than what kids our age should have been watching.

People Are Claiming Casper Is the Ghost Of Richie Rich And We Cannot Unsee It

When it comes to conspiracy theories about our childhood shows or cartoons, we all tend to get a little defensive. Personally, I find a lot of them to be way too crazy to even give the attention they demand. But lately, one has started popping back up and it's honestly too good to ignore. It involves Casper the Friendly Ghost we all know and love, and his relationship to Richie Rich. You might be thinking, how does a ghost comic from 1939 relate to a comic about a rich boy from 1953? Well, turns out people think they are the

Watching X-Men: The Animated Series was a very important part of our week. We all had our favorite heroes, our favorite villains, and our favorite episodes. It didn't matter if we had already seen it five times, because we were absolutely going to watch it again and again. The thing is, even though we loved watching it, there was actually a lot of drama going on behind the scenes. The popular cartoon had issues with toys, casting, and the network, but as kids we never noticed any of that. Now that we are all grown up, (technically, we are still

'Blue's Clues' Is Coming Back, But You May Not Like The New Look

We all remember watching Blue's Clues right? Sure, a lot of us were older, but personally I remember the kids I used to babysit being obsessed with it. "There's a clue!" the children would scream at the top of their lungs, and I would cringe, because I knew that Steve wasn't going to hear them. They would only scream louder, but he would pretend like he couldn't see the big blue paw print in the middle of his cartoon house. This would go on for many, many minutes. Steve took care of Blue, while solving the mysteries that she would
