Schoolhouse Rock! and “My Hero, Zero”

Schoolhouse Rock

On January 6, 1973, the educational children’s animated Schoolhouse Rock! series premiered on ABC with the episode “My Hero, Zero,” dedicated to the enigmatic number and the powers of ten, and featuring the song “My Hero, Zero.”

However, “My Hero, Zero” was actually the second show to air, since the pilot first aired in 1971 along with the debut of the children’s show Curiosity Shop. The pilot featured the popular song “Three Is a Magic Number.”
