Want to hear a funny story? I started watching Schoolhouse Rock the year it went on the air...I was 7. And all the years I watched and listened to it (through age 11 or 12, then the sucky "School House ROCKS!" CD, then the official CD set), I always thought that Jack Sheldon was African-American. To my ear, some of his words just had a (stereotypical) sound to them that made me think that. Not that it was bad, nor that I cared...that's just how it was....you hear a voice, you get an image in your head and my image for him was that his skin was signficantly darker than mine.
ANYWAY....my husband got me the DVD set for my birthday. Didn't get a chance to watch it until last month. Was watching the behind the scene stuff and wasn't *I* surprised when I found out he was caucasian! Only took me 30 years to find it out! .
