The best way to pay tribute to a beloved kid's show? Follow them after the episode and see how evolved. Mr. Rubin did a great job capturing how Ms. Frizzle's favorite students grew up an what happens when they go on one last field trip.... full review

The Edge of the Universe: a Magic School Bus Musical Parody is a walk down memory lane for the beloved children's TV show.
