Multiplication Rock is the first Schoolhouse Rock series, which goes over the multiplication table. It has songs for numbers 0 and 2-12, leaving out 1 and 10 (even though they are mentioned in "My Hero, Zero" and "The Good Eleven").

In 1973, Capitol Records released a soundtrack album of Multiplication Rock, featuring all original songs. Two tracks, "My Hero, Zero" and "Three Is a Magic Number", had been edited for television to keep each segment within three minutes. This LP features both songs in their full, unedited forms. Also, the album version of "The Four-Legged Zoo" has a slightly alternate ending than the broadcast.
