Schoolhouse Rock was on the air continuously from January 1973 until 1985. During that time 36 episodes were produced, as part of the four series covering different subjects, "Multiplication Rock," "Grammar Rock," America Rock," and "Science Rock." During that initial run, the show took home four daytime Emmys. The show was initially conceived as a way to teach grade-school children their times tables, and bloomed from their. 11 episodes were produced in that initial "Multiplication Rock" series, for all the numbers from 0 to 12, excluding 1 and 10, and those numbers' times tables. During the 1990s, a "Money Rock" series of eight episodes was added to the Schoolhouse Rock collection, which along with the "Science Rock" episode "The Weather Show," and the more recently-made "I'm Going to Send Your Vote to College," about the workings of the electoral college, bring the total number of episodes up to 46. The show was brought back on the air again in the late 1990s on Saturday Mornings on its original network, ABC. Children are still familiar with the songs to this day.
