It's been 23 years since The Magic School bus drove its way into our lives. Scholastic's franchise from the '90s consisted of a book series, a TV show, and several video games. The story followed Mrs. Frizzle and her class as they set off on educational adventures inside a school bus that could magically transform into a plane, a submarine, a spaceship, a time machine, or anything else the class needed to embark on exciting and unusual field trips.
