  • JumpStart 1st Grade is a personal computer game created by Knowledge Adventure in 1994 intended to teach a 1st grade curriculum. It was updated significantly in 2000 and was replaced by JumpStart Advanced 1st Grade in 2002, which was later replaced by JumpStart 3D Virtual World: Trouble in Town. The original 1994 version was the first appearance of Frankie, a brown, anthropomorphic dog who would go on to become the mascot of the JumpStart series. The 1995 version of the game is basically an interactive schoolhouse full of educational activities, songs, and the like, and Frankie was the school mascot in charge of guiding the player around. Playing activities earned points, which could eventually be traded in for milk cap rewards. The classic version contains the voiceover and singing talents of Mark Beckwith of Razzle Bam Boom and Glynnis Talken Campbell including the songs My Friend and Vegetables. The 2000 version was based on a similar concept, but Frankie took on a more student-like role, and he has picked the player to be his partner in the school treasure hunt. Playing games now earned the player clues to help the user find the treasure.
