The Magic School Bus is like an old friend at our house! We've had VHS copies and now have upgraded to the DVDs as the older copies were being worn out.
I love the educational value of the cartoons. The same set of friendly characters guide viewers on lessons about the human body, the water cycle, generating power, and more. The lessons are presented in an easy to understand format while not diluting the material too much. The information is accurate, even if they don't dive too deep into each subject. (The shows are under 30 minutes each, after all.) They provide great platforms for kids to continue exploring the subject on their own.
I do wish the producers would make more! There are so many great subjects that would lend themselves to Magic School Bus cartoons. If you haven't checked out the Magic School Bus, I highly recommend that you do. Your kids, grandkids, students, etc are almost sure to enjoy them from toddlerhood on up through late elementary ages.
