this isn’t what I’d intended to do with my afternoon but I was absolutely overcome after discovering this tumblr post positing Ms. Frizzle as a grown-up and transitioned Arnold gone back in time to teach & inspire her younger self, and then half an hour later this had happened,

[image description: an illustration of arnold and ms. frizzle in shadowy silhoutte. ms. frizzle is reaching a hand out to arnold. the caption reads, “take chances, make mistakes, get messy.”]

Did they ever do toys of that?

I’ll admit, I forgot that was a thing as it was never something I saw as a kid. I don’t think it was ever shown in my country? It was something I only really found out about later on and mostly via pop culture osmosis due to how often it was referenced in US media.

Probably? Not sure if I had any Magic School Bus toys myself, but it was a big enough thing here† around the turn of the millennium that they probably made some.

Yeah, I just checked and there were indeed toys. Here’s a couple examples that came up in Google Images.

(I loved Magic School Bus as a kid, so I thought of it immediately.)

†”Here” being used fairly broadly. I was living in America at the time, but I know I saw Magic School Bus being broadcast on Canadian TV even into the 10′s. (They might still do it for all I know; I don’t have TV service these days.)

Well, I didn’t know that.

That dinosaur bus is legitimately adorable, I’m so tempted to see if I can find one on Ebay or something. 

According to Wikipedia, they rebooted it last year as Netflix exclusive, so that is something!

The Evidence:

fledgling-witch:

the-macra:

local-shop:

fledgling-witch:

  • The Magic School Bus can time travel
  • When asked, Ms. Frizzle denies that she “knows everything”
  • However, Ms. Frizzle always knows what her students are up to, knows the answer to every question they ask her, and never shows fear even when in extreme mortal peril, as if she’s experienced this all before
  • Although we know she was in a rock band called the Frizzlettes and was a Shakespearean actress, Ms. Frizzle’s childhood remains mysterious
  • Ms. Frizzle is EXACTLY the sort of person to travel back in time to teach herself, and is in fact the most likely fictional character to do so
  • Nobody is ever named “Valerie Frizzle” at birth
  • Ms. Frizzle dresses queerly and laughs at her own bad jokes
  • A lot of the series is about Arnold learning to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy – that phrase is more or less targeted at him as a student
  • Ms. Frizzle looks a lot like a grown-up Arnold

Holy shit???????

She literally has a giant storeroom full of barrels of pickles because she loves pickles so much what more evidence do you need
