”I’m just a bill/Yes, I’m only a bill/And I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill…” We all know the can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head-with-an-ice-pick melody — but did you know that the ditty was written in the ’70s by jazz pianist Dave Frishberg and voiced by singer Jack Sheldon? You’ll learn that and more in this unofficial, graphics-heavy tribute (created by Randy Muske) to the didactic animated shorts that began airing on ABC in 1973.
