The William McKinley High School in a Decade

Out of the many possible names for a high school, the writers of Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000) and Glee (2009) chose William McKinley High School. Amazing?

What is more amazing is that both TV series use the same "M" logo, with different school colors (green and white for the 90s kids, and red and white for the Gleeks):

What is even more amazing is that given the 10 years apart, the show still features the game of dodgeball which, according to Kurt Hummel, is a modern form of stoning. In Freaks and Geeks the geeks went up against their more physically gifted classmates while in Glee the members of the two competing glee clubs in school go against each other.

Oh, how times have changed...not!

Welcome to the William McKinley High School!
