A revised and updated edition of the bestselling adult book, Schoolhouse Rock! The Official Guide, timed to the 50th anniversary of the premiere.

“Conjunction Junction, what’s your function?”

If you don’t recognize those five little words, then you weren’t camped out in front of the television set every Saturday morning from 1973 to 1985. Those catchy, jazzy tunes from Schoolhouse Rock! taught millions of us the fundamentals of math, grammar, science, and history. We learned how a bill becomes a law in “I’m Just a Bill,” the planets of our solar system in “Interplanet Janet,” how to turn an adjective into a perfectly good adverb in “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here.” Plus we unknowingly memorized the Preamble to the Constitution!

A blast from the past, Schoolhouse Rock! The Updated Official Guide includes the unforgettable lyrics and memorable moments from the original segments and the later inclusions, such as:

My Hero, Zero
Three Is a Magic Number
Figure Eight
Conjunction Junction
Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here
Telegraph Line
A Victim of Gravity
Interplanet Janet
Sufferin’ Till Suffrage
The Preamble
I’m Just a Bill
Dollars and Sense
Tyrannosaurus Debt

Sprinkled with facts and behind-the-scenes trivia, Schoolhouse Rock! The Updated Official Guide is the must-have book for every fan who wants to relive this beloved pop-culture sensation.
