The Definitive Ranking Of Ms. Frizzle's Outfits

But really, how did she afford a new one for each day on a teacher's salary?

Posted on

50. "The Family Holiday Special" (Season 3, Episode 13)

Scholastic Entertainment

There are a menorah and wreath in the background, but if there is one thing Ms. Frizzle believes in, it's recycling apparently. Though that's not the case when it comes to her clothing. Your hypocrisy will not be rewarded here, Ms. Frizzle.

45. "Goes to Seed" (Season 1, Episode 11)

Scholastic Entertainment

Personally, I loathe tomatoes so I would've gone with a different vegetable for this garden-themed sundress. But the hat and watering can earrings almost make up for it.

38. "Spins a Web" (Season 3, Episode 3)

Scholastic Entertainment

Standard eight-legged fare, but props for the creatively arranged straws (and the fact that she comes bearing snacks and drink).

37. "Gets Swamped" (Season 4, Episode 5)

Scholastic Entertainment

There's nothing too special about this fish-themed rain jacket, but there is something special about a lady who can pull off an umbrella hat.

36. "Flexes Its Muscles" (Season 2, Episode 2)

Scholastic Entertainment

Turquoise suits The Frizz, and I do enjoy this very geometric design, even though it seems like a missed opportunity for those gears to actually turn.

33. "Butterfly And The Bog Beast" (Season 2, Episode 5)

Scholastic Entertainment

Same goes for this butterfly look, which was also accompanied by flying (bonus points) and a fucking terrifying headpiece (minus points).

32. "Revved Up" (Season 1, Episode 8)

Scholastic Entertainment

It's pretty cool that Ms. Frizzle is so handy when it comes to fixing the bus, but like, there are screws on her chest here, you guys.

31. "Gets Ready, Set, Dough" (Season 1, Episode 9)

Scholastic Entertainment

Props for another jumpsuit, changing it up from her standard dress of choice, but much like the screws on the chest, it's not the best choice to have a giant hammer by one's crotch. Also, enough screwdriver-themed wear. Please and thank you.

29. "In The Haunted House" (Season 1, Episode 8)

Scholastic Entertainment

This keyboard hem is pretty classy as far as The Frizz goes. But the one-woman show she puts on to debut it bumps up this ensemble.

27. "Cold Feet" (Season 2, Episode 12)

Scholastic Entertainment

Unique for sure, but a lizard riding another scaly creature? That's just wrong. Even the alligator suit looks pissed.

26. "Under Construction" (Season 3, Episode 4)

Scholastic Entertainment

Yes, it's another jumpsuit. But this one is slightly less screw-y and more protractor-y and there is no symbolism by the crotch, so it gets a leg up over the others. Also, The Frizz has paired this red number with Timbs, which, YAAASS!

25. "Makes A Stink" (Season 4, Episode 9)

Scholastic Entertainment

From skunks to trash cans, this dress celebrates all things odorous. Truly, there has never been anything else like it. But that's probably for the best.

24. "Cracks A Yolk" (Season 4, Episode 2)

Lily Pulitzer would've loved these polkadots — and the pink and green color combination. It's pretty classic. But though this hat is daring (and tres '80s), I expect more from The Frizz.

22. "In A Pickle" (Season 2, Episode 7)

Scholastic Entertainment

I believe this is some sort of funghi/amoeba dress, which The Frizz is wearing with pickle earrings that are almost as large as the pickle she's eating. Because, of course.

17. "All Dried Up" (Season 1, Episode 7)

Scholastic Entertainment

This hot pink and purple striped dress with green cowboy boots is legitimately my 4-year-old self's dream ensemble.

14. "Gets A Bright Idea" (Season 3, Episode 5)

Scholastic Entertainment

If this were just a lighthouse design, it wouldn't warrant such placement. But these are FUNCTIONING LIGHTHOUSES, people! Props for purpose, Ms. Frizzle.

13. "In A Beehive" (Season 3, Episode 1)

A) How did she get in this faux hive? B) How long did she stay in said faux hive? C) How did she make said faux hive roll at the perfect moment? D) How is her dress so fabulous and unwrinkled after staying in said faux hive for an unknown amount of time? The mysteries and gloriousness of The Frizz, you guys.

11. "Rocks and Rolls" (Season 3, Episode 12)

Scholastic Entertainment

No joke, I would wear this coat. I would not, however, become a snowperson. Also, Winter Frizzle is an adorable Frizzle.

10. "Taking Flight" (Season 2, Episode 9)

Scholastic Entertainment

This shearling aviator jacket is perfection. As are the lilac pantaloons tucked into the knee-high magenta boots. Again, it's a pink-and-purple color combination that simply cannot be beat.

8. "Shows And Tells" (Season 3, Episode 6)

Scholastic Entertainment

Basically, she outdid The Riddler by turning his green and purple question-mark suit into OVERALLS. And, of course, Liz is the ultimate head piece. Bless this woman.

7. "Gets Lost in Space" (Season 1, Episode 1)

Scholastic Entertainment

She legitimately has a planetarium on her head. (Sidebar: This is how we first met her and I wouldn't have it any other way.)

6. "Gets Programmed" (Season 4, Episode 11)

Scholastic Entertainment

Obviously, she was ripped off by the costume designer of Tron. But imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

5. "Gets Ants In The Pants" (Season 1, Episode 12)

Scholastic Entertainment

Firstly, the woman is wearing antennae. Secondly, this dress has a giant sunflower, the signature plant of the '90s. Thirdly, IT FEATURES MAGICALLY APPEARING ANTS! Fourthly, the butterfly bow shoes.

1. "Meets Molly Cule" (Season 4, Episode 1)

This may not be as flashy as other Ms. Frizzle looks, but she is wearing studded sunglasses, electric guitar earrings, and a Saturday Night Fever-meets-Santa Clause jumpsuit. Oh, and some purple shoes to top the whole thing off. It doesn't really get better than this.
