Fondly remembered but no long on broadcast television, this year is Schoolhouse Rock’s 45th anniversary!

Between the above and the recent passing of Schoolhouse Rock contributor and jazz musician Bob Dorough, it’s Quiz Time! Ready?

01. When Schoolhouse Rock! first debuted in January 1973, it began with Multiplication Rock!, covering the table from "My Hero Zero" to "Little Twelvetoes".
But what two numbers were skipped?
02. Multiplication Rock! lessons were quickly joined in the weekly rotation with Grammar Rock!
What was the first lesson in that subject?
03. What group of lessons were added in 1975 in time for the bicentennial of the United States?
04. What subject started debuting lessons in 1979 amongst the existing topics?
05. Although the shortest subject because of the ever changing technology field, Computer Rocks! debuted in 1983 with what two recurring characters?
06. Sadly, the series went off the air for a while starting in 1985, but when it returned in the early 1990s, it gained a mascot to introduce the segments. Who was this character?
07. With the series revival, what new subject was introduced amongst the original episodes and new lessons in Grammar Rock!?
08. Sadly, the series went off the air again in 1999 and has only been on DVD (and YouTube) since then. Yet what new subject was covered in the series only straight to DVD release (to date) in 2009?

We’ll reveal all next weekend, but for now, let’s open up THE ANSWERS BOX and discover the results from the April 21, 2018 Puzzle Corner.

Words from a tune of the past are below. All you have to do is tell us the song title. Ready?

♫Where paleface and redskin both turn chicken♫
From the theme to F-Troop (1965-67) by Irving Taylor and William Lava.

Two separate items share at least one word, and so can be combined to create something new. Based upon the clue below, do you know what the new thing is?

Lucky vehicle accessory?
Spare Wheel of Fortune.
