I learned recently that Lynn Ahrens (lyricsist to [i]Ragtime[/i], animated [i]Anastasia[/i]) wrote the "Preamble" ditty.
Mrs. Jones is a lady on Hudson St.
She sent her dog to bark at my brother and me
We gave her dog a big fat bone (belongs on the double-entendre thread) and now he barks at Mrs. Jones
A kids show with Oscar winner Rita Moreno and futuere Oscar winner Morgan Freeman - not bad.
My favorite: The Adventures of Letterman - narration by Joan Rivers with the voices of Gene Wilder as Letterman and Zero Mostel as The Spellbinder.

R28, INDEED! A young queen's first encounter with comedy GREATS!
I became a Morgan Freeman fan because of his "Easy Reader" character - even though I was an 8 year old female with a freckle face I was wanted to be that character for Halloween.
many schoolhouse rock songs were written by Broadway lyricist Lynn Aherns.
She is the voice of Janet!

He was a hairy bear, he was a scary bear!
Such a great memory. Saturday mornings at it's best...
It wasn't adjectives. It was In Ter Jec Tions!!!
r4 I think most of us of a certain age know the preamble because of that.
Those bits were so subversively great. They made you learn stuff and you didn't even realize it. The only one i didn't like was the guy who sang #5. He seemed a little creepy. Hanging around all those little kids. hmmm.
Joan Rivers narrated Letterman!
He was a hairy bear, he was a scary bear,
We beat a hssty retreat from his lair
then we unpacked our adjectives!
Of course being named Bill, "I'm Just a Bill" holds a special place in my heart.
I think Schoolhouse Rock was first and then came American Rock which was more history oriented.
"Mother Necessity, what do you need..."
"The great American melting pot..."
The original series was "Multiplication Rock." "Grammar Rock" followed soon after, then "America Rock" for the Bicentennial. Later, those series and the subsequent ones were all presented under the generic "Schoolhouse Rock" banner.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
