This really hurts. I cried as I read the article. This was my childhood.

From surreal ("Little Twelvetoes"), to poignant ("Figure Eight"), to educational fun ("Conjuction Junction") Schoolhouse Rock covered it all.

Well, 94 is a damn good run. He certainly made a lasting impact on my generation. Many fond memories of watching those clips as a kid and later on DVD.

It must have been pretty cool to have written educational songs that stuck with people for forty-five years. RIP.
