The Emmy Award-winning 1970’s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, science, and politics through clever, tuneful songs is lighting up the stage at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar, instructing a whole new generation to “Unpack Your Adjectives” and “Do the Circulations”.

Put on your PJ’s (or not) and bring the whole family out for some “Saturday morning” nostalgia in the evening with live music, singing, and dancing by the talented youth of Talkeetna.
