Homework puts you to sleep, books take too long to read, and class material is too dry-how else can a college student learn? Take a TV break! These seven kids' shows will help you relax and learn something new at the same time:
1. Rocky and Bullwinkle

If you don't catch the Cold War references or altered fairy tales, check out the "Mr. Know-It All" segment for practical life lessons (with a twist).
2. Sesame Street

You already know your numbers and alphabet-but Sesame Street also serves up vocabulary lessons, celebrity appearances, TV parodies, and catchy songs.

You'll learn about the human body, space, ecology, and more-all with Ms. Frizzle's infectious personality.
5. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

This show teaches all the soft skills and life lessons that college students need: kindness, community involvement, and how to be yourself. You might also tour a factory or learn a new recipe.
6. Bill Nye the Science Guy

It's the complete package: science, social studies, math, grammar, and history, all translated into classic songs.
