Top Ten Best Magic School Bus Episodes

I deeply loved this show as a kid, as well as many others did, I'm sure, on this site.

The Magic School Bus is an animated television series that ran from 1994 to 1997 and consists of 52 episodes. It follows an eccentric teacher and her class, who use a magic school bus to go on fantastical field trips and learn more about science. Remember that "The Magic School Bus..." precedes each episode title to make a complete statement.
The Top Ten
1 Gets Lost in Space

I think I was the only one who wasn't scared by this episode, Why, you might ask?
Because I knew that they wouldn't kill someone in a Kids Show, although I kinda feel like this was probably what Arnold would've wanted after a few episodes.

It's the original pilot episode of the show, and it's the reason why I still think of Pluto as a planet.

But. I like it and I'm fully grown kid

Don't forget that Pluto has moons!

2 In the Haunted House

I wasn't as much afraid of this episode as I was entertained. There's so much awesome stuff to look at in this episode! Plus, Carol Channing has a cameo at the end. CAROL CHANNING! It almost makes me tear up.

This episode was scary to me in kindergarten but it was cool to watch the sound moving. Scary organ though

3 For Lunch

They should remake the episode but edit the ending and make them get pooped out of Arnold's butthole instead. It would be so much funnier XDDD

Arnold hates going on fieldtrips. Well, guess what Arnold, now YOU'RE the fieldtrip. Open wide, boy.

4 Blows Its Top

The volcano episode. We're talking lava, explosions, and really creepily squished faces at the end (if you've seen it, you know what I mean). Overall, awesome!

This episode was pretty good!

5 Gets a Bright Idea

You know, that TERRIFYING episode where Arnold gets "turned into a ghost"? It's scary as hell, but equally as fun to watch.

6 The Busasaurus

The class goes to visit the dinosaurs. Need I say more?

7 Under Construction
8 Gets Ready, Set, Dough

The famously hilarious cake episode. You know, with the really cheesy, mustached baker? You probably already knew which episode it was from the title, right? Yeah. Thought so.

9 Makes a Rainbow
10 Taking Flight

Does a surprisingly good job teaching about aerospace engineering

The Contenders
11 Spins a Web
12 Gets Eaten

Not to be confused with "For Lunch", this episode has to do with undersea plankton and fish. Of course, as you probably guessed, a fish eats them. You know you loved it.

13 Butterfly and the Bog Beast

It's great for learning about the evolutionary supremacy of butterflies

14 Getting Energized

It's entertaining watching them make all those devices to harness energy

15 The Magic School Bus Holiday Special

Every single object and building in town gets horrifically turned into cans and plastic bottles after the bus turns evil. What? That doesn't scream "holiday special" to you?

16 In the Rain Forest

Earth Day + Cocoa Beans + Inspector 47's bad accent = a crazy, fun episode!

17 Sees Stars
18 All Dried Up

Phoebe is worried about how animals in the desert survive. Well, Phoebe, they've sort of been doing it for millions of years. I think they're fine. Don't believe me? Ok, then.

Phoebe is such a kindhearted and brave animal rights activist

19 Gets Planted
20 Going Batty

The whole class thinks Ms. Frizzle is a vampire. Which is ridiculous. SHE'S OBVIOUSLY A WITCH! I'll tell you, I was afraid to drink tomato juice for months after first watching this one. Not that I'd drink it anyways. I mean, come on. Tomato juice.

First of all, I wanna know why the teacher would take off with every adult in the whole building, leave the kids there, and put a LIZARD in charge?

21 Wet All Over

The class acts as a physical representation of the water cycle. Since I've seen what happens to Senator Kelly in 'X-Men', I'd say, DON'T DO IT!

22 Out of This World

The bus turns into an obviously "Star Trek-ish" space ship and goes in to space (again) to stop an asteroid from colliding with the Earth after Dorothy Ann has a prophetic dream about it. Dang it, D.A., what's with you and space danger?

23 Goes Cellular

Arnold turns orange from eating too many "Seaweedies". Why he'd want to eat those at all remains a mystery to humanity.

24 Goes to Mussel Beach

The class all turns into mussels. Because that's not creepy.

It's a tropical day.
Hakuna Matata.

25 In a Pickle

I'm going to let you discover this little treasure for yourselves, if you don't know it. The title should be a good enough clue.
