Who else grew up with Ms. Frizzle and her class on PBS — ironically right around when you got home from school?
All kids love the idea of baking soda volcanoes and raising caterpillars into butterflies. But I distinctly remember the Magic School Bus traveling into the human blood stream, rocketing out toward Pluto and submerging deep into the sea.
I was fortunate to have mostly wonderful teachers as I made my way through K-12. But I definitely learned a lot of extra cool stuff about science through watching that show and reading those books. I did real well on that portion of the ACT.
Thanks, Ms. Frizzle.
Next Gen Magic School Bus Lovers
Netflix just happens to have the Magic School Bus available, along with their own revamp. I’ve gotten to watch (and read) some of my classic faves with my own kids. I’ve gotten to enjoy the new series with them for the first time.
It’s a cool thing.
I’m super excited because now we’re going to enjoy the Magic School Bus experience in a whole new medium: theater.

Okay, remember the episode where they’re hurtling towards Pluto?
