Es War Einmal Ein Mensch meets Schoolhouse Rock 2013

Even today, as an American in my 40s, there are grammar points that I quote School House Rock cartoons from the 1970s to remind myself of.

Over here in Germany, one discovery is a series of history videos made for kids, that are done as German cartoons.

One can tell they are ‘old school’ because they are really drawn in ink and painted rather than done using computer graphics.

They are well made enough for me to have been able to tolerate my own lack of understanding of German …so that I would watch and listen and actually learn some German thanks to being able to follow a lot of it, thanks to how it is done as cartoon plays about events in history. “Cartoon historical re-enactments”.

Who would have thought? and yet, why not?
