SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR. opens at 6 a.m. as Tom Mizer, a young teacher, wakes up on his first day of work. As his alarm goes off, Tom enters and begins to rehearse his teaching technique. Soon, Tom’s thoughts begin to take life around him. In an attempt to calm himself, Tom turns on the T.V. What’s on this morning? Why, it’s Schoolhouse Rock! As Tom gets drawn into the show the first song begins. Tom thinks he may be losing his marbles and attempts to turn off the T.V. His various alter egos convince him that he is O.K. Each one of them is a part of Tom’s mind. They’re every person, place and thing he has ever seen. Tom is still quite unconvinced that he is has not lost his mind.
