When I was growing up, a lot of Saturday mornings were spent watching Looney Tunes with Bugs Bunny and the gang. Every 30 minutes or so, they would flash a Schoolhouse Rock! lesson where you would learn something (history, science, etc) with cartoon animations and a fun song to go long with it.

I thought it would be cool to look back and have a little fun at the same time, so, I'm going to start off by putting down a few of my favorites. Please feel free to add you own. I will then set up a tournament bracket and we get work it down to a BGG Schoolhouse Rock! champion.

The Rules:
All entries are up for consideration by the Selection Committee which will be made up of YOU, the BGG public. Thumb any titles you want to see get into the tourney. A minimum of 8 will advance to the Big Dance, but more will be included if there is a large number of titles with a lot of support.

We will then do the "usual" bracket with poll voting determining the winner.

The Rewards:
The person who submits the entry with the most thumbs by the Selection Committee will get 10GG. (If one of mine is selected, the GG will go to the next highest)

The eventual tournament champion will also get 10GG, plus any GG tips received by the list. The runner up will get 5GG.

The Selection Committee's decision will be made at a random time between 12 noon and 12 midnight EST on Sunday.

UPDATE:

The picks have been made. 14 items had 4 or more votes, so a random draw was made for the 15 and 16th picks.

The winner of the GG will be shared between:

Despite having a mom who was an English teacher, my grammar was always a problem. This made some of the rules a little easier to bear.

The transition from a colony to indepedence, told from the American side. I suppose if there was a British version of Schoolhouse Rock!, there would be a different perspective.

I'll add this one (even though Conjuction Junction is going to win). So popular, Nike even made a commercial with it as a soundtrack.

This little folksy tune has stuck with me to this day. It took a while before I knew what the words of the song really meant, but when the light went on it was pretty cool.
