TD 337 - Schoolhouse Rock! - FINAL STANDINGS

Post by Peachbox » Mon Mar 13, 2017 3:36 am

Schoolhouse Rock!

This TD is inspired by the Schoolhouse Rock videos that began airing in the 1970s; I remember these brief educational snippets from watching Saturday morning television. There were various versions through the years, such as America Rock and Grammar Rock; newer versions were Money Rock from the 1990s and Earth Rock from the 2000s.

Special thanks to editors Woof and BobF.

The following standard rules apply to this TD:

1. Your goal is to achieve the lowest score for all questions; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players also submitting your answer.
2. You may DROP one question and receive zero points for that question.
3. You may also SHEEP one question and receive the point total of the most common answer.
4. Wrong answers count for the SHEEP (most common answer) + 3 points.
5. Last names only are OK unless otherwise noted.
6. Quiz is open to JBoard members and nonmembers alike.
7. As always, no cheating. This includes googling or other research, asking others, or Vulcan mind melds.


Deadline is 11:59 p.m. PT, Monday, March 20. Enter with this Google form or send me a pm.

1. Sufferin' 'til Suffrage

Oh we were sufferin', until suffrage, not a woman here could vote no matter what age.....

This video that originally aired in 1976 touched on the women’s suffrage movement. Pick one of the following 11 choices; no letter needed.


Identify the social reformer and suffragette who is pictured on a U.S. dollar coin that was first issued in 1976 but is no longer minted.

A women's rights convention was held in 1848 in this city in New York.

Name the abolitionist and suffragette from New York whose "Declaration of Sentiments" was presented at that 1848 convention.

Rights activist Lucretia Mott, who helped write the Declaration of Sentiments, was of this abolitionist and pacifist faith.

Kate Sheppard was a prominent suffrage advocate in this country, which passed a women's suffrage law in 1893.

Women's suffrage became law in the United States in 1920 with the passage of this constitutional amendment.

This abolitionist, women's rights activist and former slave was born Isabella Baumfree in New York in 1797.

Alice Paul organized the 1913 Women's Suffrage Procession the day before this man's inauguration as U.S. president in Washington D.C.

The name of this women's rights activist became associated with a mid-19th century reform style of clothing sometimes called "Turkish dress.'

In 1869, this U.S. territory, now a state, guaranteed women the right to vote.

Name the suffragette and author who’s best known for writing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

Bonus: Lynn Ahrens, one of the main writers and singers on Schoolhouse Rock, wrote a famous 8-word jingle--with a drawn-out 4th word--for an ice cream product. For -2 points, name that ice cream. No penalty for a wrong guess.


2. Interplanet Janet
This video teaching kids about the solar system originally aired in 1978. Name a commercially released film, TV movie, or serial with the name of a planet, dwarf planet, the word Sun or Moon in its title. No direct-to-video releases. Compound words are OK; for example, Sunny Side Up, Honeymoon.


3. No More Kings

This video from 1975 dealt—in a simplistic way…..it’s a kids’ video, after all—with the American colonists’ overthrow of British rule. You learn fun trivia, such as the Redcoats were really magenta and traveled to the colonies by walking through the Atlantic Ocean. :roll:

Name the country one of these monarchs ruled. Some of the countries listed still have monarchs, while others don’t. The years in power are noted; no country is repeated. Be sure to include the letter with your answer.

A. Catherine II the Great, 1762-1796
B. Pedro II, 1831-1889
C. Queen Wilhelmina, 1890-1948
D. Richard III, 1483-1485
E. Hussein bin Talal, 1952-1999
F. Olav V, 1957-1991
G. George Tupou V, 2006-2012
H. Mohamed Zahir Shah, 1933-1973
I. Prince Rainier, 1949-2005

I’m just a bill, yes I’m only a bill, and I’m sittin’ here on Capitol Hill….

sang Jack Sheldon in this Dave Frishberg song from 1976. Sheldon also played an amendment in a 1996 Simpsons parody episode. But here, the only bill knowledge you’ll need is in identifying one of the people named Bill, Billie, or Billy pictured.

5. Conjunction Junction

Conjunction Junction, what’s your function? Hookin’ up words and phrases and clauses…..

This video was part of the Grammar Rock series originally airing in 1973.

The first 5 options here relate to some type of junction; the next 8 are Before & After questions. The B&As will share a word or part of a word. Examples: LeBron (James) Monroe, Green Eggs and (Ham)ilton. Just pick one of the 13 and be sure to include both parts if choosing a B&A.

Part of a luggage trolley juts out of a wall in "Platform 9 3/4" at this real London train station.
This type of traffic junction is so named because it (kind of) resembles a plate of noodles.
"The Crossroads of America" can be seen on this U.S. state's license plate.
This 10-letter word describes the point where two or more rivers flow together.
This is the most populous city in Mesa County, Colorado.


Belize capital + Jar/box opener of myth
Rice Krispies trio + brand of toaster pastry
French Reign of Terror figure + Designer of Washington, D.C. layout
Song by The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk + term for 'N Sync, One Direction, etc.
Type of cheese + runner who collided with Mary Decker
Pikachu is one of these + whale from Pinocchio
Edna Ferber book/Jerome Kern musical + winner of NERC’s 2016 "Name our Ship" contest
Group with the hit "Too Shy" + candy bar with marshmallow/caramel/peanuts covered in chocolate


6. America the Beautiful Quarters

Money Rock was a mid-1990s version of Schoolhouse Rock, wherein kids learned about currency, budgets, taxes, etc. The latest addition to the U.S. state quarters series depicts a national park or site from each state. Identify one state whose quarter is shown below and be sure to include the letter with your answer.

7. The Shot Heard 'Round the World

Take your powder and your gun, report to General Washington…

This 1975 video touched on some key battles of the American Revolution. Question 7 is mainly about the first 2 of those. Pick one option; no letter needed.

Paul Revere is famous for his "midnight ride" to warn of advancing British troops in April 1775. But two other men rode to spread the news on April 18 as well. Name either; they’ll be counted separately.

Revere's ride is recalled (inaccurately) in a poem by what author?

On April 19, 1775, colonial troops and British troops first battled in what Massachusetts town?

After this incident, British troops proceeded to Concord, which is also the name of the capital of what U.S. state?

The term "shot heard 'round the world" is from a commemorative 1837 poem entitled Concord Hymn written by what American?

The Minute Man statue was unveiled at the 100th anniversary of two famous Revolutionary War battles. Name the man who sculpted it.

The so-called Battle of Bunker Hill was mostly fought on what other nearby hill?

A pennant-winning home run that also came to be known as the "shot heard 'round the world" occurred in a baseball game on October 3, 1951. Name the batter who hit that home run, the pitcher who coughed it up, or the team either played for. Four possible answers, counted separately.

Name the home team's announcer whose radio call of that home run became legendary.


8. Figure Eight

Figure eight…is double four…figure four…is half of eight…

Part of 1973’s Multiplication Rock series, this video taught kids about multiples of eight with skating and other cartoons. Figure eights and other compulsory figures were a part of international skating until 1990, and part of U.S. competitions until 1998. For this question, identify one of the following pictures of skaters. If you choose one of the two pairs, I need both names. And thank you, Paraguay, for issuing skater stamps. :)

9. Electricity, Electricity


This video from the Science Rock series originally aired in 1979. Electricity and other scientific quantities are measured in SI units. Excluding the 3 temperature scales, name an SI Unit or derived unit named after a person. It doesn’t have to be related to electricity, and you don’t have to name what the unit actually measures—i.e., amperes measure electric current. 16 answers.

Bonus:
For -2 points each, name the scientists from the Heroes of Science series depicted here: Scientists
No penalty for a wrong guess.



10. Three is a Magic Number


3 6 9…..12 15 18…..21 24 27…..30. This video from Multiplication Rock helped kids learn how to multiply by threes. For this question, identify the person or thing related to one of these numbers. No need to include number with answer.

3- Name all three of Donald Duck’s nephews.
6- Six is the atomic number of what element?
9- The poem Casey at the Bat mentions the __________ Nine.
12- Who directed the 1957 film 12 Angry Men?
15- "Beware the Ides of March" is a line from what Shakespeare play?
18- "18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses" was a No. 1 hit in 1988 for this artist.
21- Which artist released the album 21 in 2011?
24- Twenty-four is the number of Stanley Cup championships (since 1915) this team has won.
27- Twenty-seven was the prisoner number of Abbe Faria, who befriended Edmond Dantes in this Alexandre Dumas book.
30- Thirty is the number of what Golden State Warriors player and 2-time NBA MVP?

Thank you for playing, and good luck! :)

That was a fun little quiz... Even for me, apparently the only person who was a kid in that era and *never* saw an episode or video of Schoolhouse Rock!

Now that you've entered, you can search them out on Youtube, or check out one of the many videos available on CD. (Probably also on streaming services too.) You're in for some fun. :)

They were awesome as a kid; and a couple of years ago I introduced them to my then 5-year-old son. He had a blast with them.
***lolly, lolly, lolly....father, son and lolly...get your adverbs here!*** ahh, the good times :lol:

And yes, this was an enjoyable quiz!

Thank you for this wonderful little walk down memory lane. I showed the "Gravity" one to my daughter, who now is obsessed with "gravity experiments" (she climbs me and lets go, and I get to catch her before she hits the ground).

Thanks, all. :) This was a fun quiz to make. And I left out so many--the Preamble, Mother Necessity, Elementary, etc.--there's probably enough material for me or someone else to do a Part II.

This video teaching kids about the solar system originally aired in 1978. Name a commercially released film, TV movie, or serial with the name of a planet, dwarf planet, the word Sun or Moon in its title. No direct-to-video releases. Compound words are OK; for example, Sunny Side Up, Honeymoon.

Magna - B. Portugal (Pedro II became Emperor of Brazil after its independence from Portugal)
Ouch. Actually, the reason I said Portugal was that it had several King Pedros, and the time given was in the waning years of the Portuguese monarchy.

There was a Pedro II of Portugal, but he reigned one or two centuries earlier. And Pedro IV of Portugal was also Pedro I of Brazil, as well as being Pedro II of Brazil's father.

5. Conjunction Junction

Spaghetti junction, what’s your function? Hookin’ up sauce and noodles and meatballs….

Good 1984 Olympics knowledge on this one. Or not, as it ended up being the sheep. Only one option went unused, and there were 3 singletons, with one of those--King's Cross--not being chosen until the 38th entry. Questions and answers in spoiler.

How often does the player in last place have no incorrect answers? Asking for a friend.

I cannot believe Showboaty McBoatFace was a singleton! My TD instincts are all wrong.

For the movie question, I also pondered Another Earth and The Day the Earth Stood Still, but figured Venus in Fur (Polanski's adaption of the David Ives play), would be good for a singleton 8-)

7. The Shot Heard 'Round the World

Pretty good distribution here, with an interesting split on the baseball options.
Questions and answers in spoiler.
SpoilerShow

After this incident, British troops proceeded to Concord, which is also the name of the capital of what U.S. state?
New Hampshire
The term "shot heard 'round the world" is from a commemorative 1837 poem entitled Concord Hymn written by what American?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Minute Man statue was unveiled at the 100th anniversary of two famous Revolutionary War battles. Name the man who sculpted it.
Daniel Chester French
The so-called Battle of Bunker Hill was mostly fought on what other nearby hill?
