The Magic School Bus is an award winning animated children’s television series based on the book series of the same title by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. It’s Valentine’s Day, and the class is selling light bulbs. When they stop at Ms. Frizzle’s house to sell her one, they find that her battery-operated doorbell doesn’t work. While looking for Ms. Frizzle to tell her the doorbell’s broken, Wanda overhears her teacher talking on the telephone. “Ms. Frizzle has a boyfriend,” says Wanda, “and he’s on his way over to see her. We’ve got to fix the doorbell or she’ll never know he’s here.” But first they have to figure out how the doorbell works.
