Completely off-topic question to my American readers...
How many of you passed a test, completed homework, or otherwise got ahead in school because you watched Saturday morning cartoons?
I took my daughter to a production of "Schoolhouse Rock Live!" on Sunday. I think the parents enjoyed it more than the kids.
(Answer to my own question: In Mrs. Vinik's fifth grade class, one assignment was to memorize the Preamble to the US Constitution. I earned double points because I was able to recite it five minutes after the homework was handed out :-))
