A couple Christmases ago I gave my brother’s 7-year-old nephew the entire collection of "Schoolhouse Rock!" episodes. The kid looked at me like I gave him socks. Meanwhile, his dad snatched the DVDs from him like he was 7, and it was Christmas Eve 1977.
After the kids went to bed, we spent the evening with hot totties and "Schoolhouse Rock!" Here's one of the episodes, The Tale of Mr. Morton, which was produced for the show's encore run in 1993. It's for all the writers, editors and romantics out there.
The story follows Mr. Morton, a portly writer with crippling social anxiety, as he courts Pearl, the woman he spies on from his window. It’s a love story and a lesson on how to identify the subject and predicate of a sentence — all in three minutes. "Schoolhouse Rock!" was made for YouTube.
Best line: “Hello, cat. You look good.”
