JumpStart 1st Grade1995 (also known as Jump Ahead Year 1 in the United Kingdom) is a 1995 personal computer game designed by Knowledge Adventure to teach the first-grade curriculum. It was reissued in 1999 with new box art, was significantly updated in 2000, and was eventually replaced by JumpStart Advanced 1st Grade in 2002, which was later replaced by JumpStart 3D Virtual World: Trouble in Town. The original 1995 version (also known as the Classic Version) introduced Frankie, a brown, anthropomorphic dog who would go on to become the JumpStart series’ mascot.
The 1995 version of JumpStart 1st Grade featured an interactive schoolhouse filled with educational activities, songs, and the like, with Frankie the school mascot guiding the player around. Playing activities earned points, which could be exchanged for milk cap rewards in the future. The classic version includes the songs JumpStart First Grade, Vegetable ABCs If You Were My Friend, Reading is Fun, Zero is Nothing, My Week at Sea, and Frankie’s Theme Song, as well as the voiceover and singing talents of Mark Beckwith of Razzle Bam Boom and Glynnis Talken Campbell.
The 2000 remake followed a similar theme, with Frankie adopting a more student-like persona and selecting the player to be his partner in the school treasure hunt. Playing games now earns the player clues that will assist the user in locating the treasure. There are four ways to get somewhere in the hallway. There are two outside areas and two inside areas. A classroom, a cafeteria, field trips, and a playground are located on each of the four sides. The player must earn 100 points in order to receive a milk cap. There are 30 green math caps, 30 red reading caps, 20 blue nature caps, and 20 yellow time caps. At Christmas, 60 milk caps are colored, and in UCLA, 40 milk caps are colored.
