'Schoolhouse Rock!' Tried to Warn Us About 'Tyrannosaurus Debt'

By Eric Scheiner | August 5, 2013 | 3:40pm EDT

Many of us grew up watching “Schoolhouse Rock!” in the 70’s and early 80’s. Learning a little as we sang the tunes.

We hummed about a noun being a person, place or thing. Or perhaps crooned about the celestial bodies visited by Interplanet Janet.

But you may have missed “Tyrannosaurus Debt”, it was made a little later in the mid-90’s.

The Schoolhouse Rock Monster was pretty scary back when this was made in 1996 ($5 trillion). And, instead of becoming extinct, he’s even bigger and badder today.

The song “Tyrannosaurus Debt” has aged pretty well, probably because many of its economic themes are timeless.
