Magic School BusThe Magic School Bus - On the Scholastic Productions, Inc. animated children's program THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS/PBS/FOX/1994 science teacher extraordinaire, Ms. Frizzle (voice provided by Lily Tomlin) takes her students on field trips in a magic school bus to illustrate the science concepts she discusses in class.

Luckily, Ms. Frizzle's school bus can literally go anywhere, including inside the human body to explore how our organs (heart, etc.) work; underground to explore the earth's crust; and into outer space to learn about planets and asteroids. On one episode, the magic school bus miniaturizes the class so they can explore an anthill and discover the secret world of insects.

The kids traveling aboard the magic school bus included Carlos (Daniel DeSanto), Phoebe (Maia Filar), Keesha (Erica Luttrell), Dorothy Anne (Tara Meyer), Ralphie (Stuart Stone), Arnold (Danny Tamberelli), and Wanda (Lisa Yamanaka).

The series was based on the books written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen. 1950s rocker Little Richard sang the program's theme song.

THEME SONG LYRICS
(Lyrics by Peter Lurye; Sung by Little Richard)

Sing along with the theme song!
Ride on the Magic School Bus

Cruisin' on down Main Street
You're relaxed and feelin' good
Next thing that you know you're seein'
Octopus in the neighborhood!

Surfin' on a sound wave
Swingin' through the stars
Take a left at your intestine
Take your second right past Mars.

On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Navigate a nostril
Climb on THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Spank a plankton, too
On our Magic School Bus
Raft a river of lava
On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS
Such a fine thing to do!

So strap your bones right to the seat
Come on in and don't be shy —
Just to make your day complete
You might get baked into a pie

On THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS...
Step inside — it's a wilder ride!
Come on — ride on THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS!
