Schoolhouse Rock first showed up in the U.S. in the 1970s as an interstitial cartoon that aired during Saturday morning cartoons, like a commercial right before the 10:00am cartoon shows. Below is a table of when each season began. The total list of episodes is exactly 64, which fits our brackets precisely!
|Multiplication Rock||11||January 6, 1973|
|Grammar Rock||9||September 15, 1973|
|America Rock||12||September 20, 1975|
|Science Rock||9||September 16, 1978|
|Money Rock||8||May 7, 1994|
|Earth Rock||11||March 31, 2009|
There was no good way to divide them up by category or topic into groups of 16, so I separated them evenly into the four divisions. Example: There are 12 America Rock episodes, so I put three in each division. After dividing them into four groups, I arranged them in the brackets to balance the popular ones and spread them out. Much like actual ranking but without the numbers.
