It’s another Top Nerdy Ten! In case you haven’t heard the exciting news (seriously, brace yourself) Netflix is in the process of rebooting beloved children’s series The Magic School Bus. The Magic School Bus 360 is slated to have 26 episodes that will released sometime next year. So we’d like to throw it back and count down our top ten favourite field trips taken by The Frizz and her class from the original 1997 series. So strap on that seatbelt because it’s time to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!
10. Gets A Bright Idea
I was one of those kids who wanted to try out my own version of the Pepper’s ghost illusion.
9. Under Construction
Engineering at its best. I always knew that bobby pins were super strong.
8. Takes A Dive
Symbiosis. I swear I learned more from Ms. Frizzle than I have from any textbook.
7. Makes A Stink
I’d really like one of those laser dissociation of molecules contraptions for Christmas.
6. Plays Ball
Who knew that Newtonian physics could be perfectly explained with baseball metaphors?
5. Kicks Up A Storm
Shicka, shicka, kaboom! Who doesn’t want to be a superhero that controls weather?
4. Gets Programmed
A gazillion gigabyte hard drive AND a floppy drive? Yes please! Wait, do kids these days even know what a floppy is?
3. The Busasaurus
Time travel. Now that’s a field trip.
2. Makes A Rainbow
That is the most epic pinball machine created.
1. Gets Lost In Space
The only planetarium open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 😉
What were your favourite Frizzle field trips? Leave a comment below. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to binge watch all four seasons of the original series on Netflix (or raid my VHS collection).
‘Til next time,
