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. The class travels to Phoebe’s old school to retrieve a plant for her garden plot in Ms. Frizzle’s classroom, but Phoebe is worried that Ms. Frizzle will embarrass her in front of her old teacher, Mr. Seedplot. Phoebe’s fears are realized when Ms. Frizzle shrinks the bus to the size of a lady bug so the class can get a close look at all of the plants.
