    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?

    54. "Works Out" (Season 3, Episode 9)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    There is no excuse for this sweatsuit, Ms. Frizzle. I expect more, even for your activewear.

    53. "Goes On Air" (Season 4, Episode 4)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    At least it's a jumpsuit and not a sweatsuit?

    52. "In The Arctic" (Season 3, Episode 2)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Nope, I cannot.

    51. "Plays Ball" (Season 1, Episode 10)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Hammer earrings and a bowling pin dress? Major point deduction for lack of coherent theme here.

    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.

    49. "Hops Home" (Season 1, Episode 5)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Just a sun and some frogs and grass? Come on.

    48. "Gets Charged" (Season 4, Episode 10)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Lightbulbs and batteries? Yawn.

    47. "Gets Eaten" (Season 1, Episode 4)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Nautical-themed? Step your game up, Frizz.

    46. "Goes To Mussel Beach" (Season 4, Episode 3)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Well, this looks familiar.

    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.

    44. "Gets Planted" (Season 3, Episode 10)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Vegetation again, but at least there are no tomatoes. And a solid entrance as well.

    43. "Getting Energzied" (Season 2, Episode 10)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Just some windmills. Very Quixotic, but nothing to see here.

    42. "Goes Upstream" (Season 3, Episode 8)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Just some sea creatures. Nothing to see here.

    41. "Out of this World" (Season 2, Episode 11)

    Sholastic Entertainment

    Just some asteroids and stars. Nothing to see here.

    40. "Takes A Dive" (Season 4, Episode 13)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Just an astronaut-meets-scuba-diving suit-slash-helmet. Nothing to see here.

    39. "Meets the Rot Squad" (Season 1, Episode 6)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Worm/beetle dress? Minus 5. Shroom earrings? Plus 10.

    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.

    35. "Ups and Downs" (Season 2, Episode 13)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Cute hat, Frizz. But this school bus does not take field trips to Connecticut.

    34. "Going Batty" (Season 2, Episode 4)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    There's nothing all that original about this bat look, but at least she is fully committed to it.

    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.

    30. "Gains Weight" (Season 4, Episode 8)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    This jumpsuit is certainly an improvement. But now there is a globe by the crotch. Apparently, The Frizz has really been places.

    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.

    28. "Wet All Over" (Season 2, Episode 6)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    There's nothing all that special about this dress either, but again, props for the entrance and the fact that she was able to fit it beneath a wetsuit.

    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)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    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.

    23. "For Lunch" (Season 1, Episode 2)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    Not exactly the most innovative, but who doesn't love a dress that can include tacos, cheese, and dentures?

    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.

    21. "In The City" (Season 4, Episode 12)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Because possums deserve to be on a dress... with a cityscape?

    20. "Sees Stars" (Season 4, Episode 7)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    This constellation dress is elegant, informative, and creative. Frizzle really stepped her game up.

    19. "Works Out" (Season 3, Episode 9)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    A workout look straight out of Clarissa Darling's closet. It is everything.

    18. "Goes Cell-Ular" (Season 4, Episode 6)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    A diamond gown with pockets AND a choker? Literally no one else could pull this off.

    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.

    16. "Blows Its Top" (Season 2, Episode 1)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    Her globe earrings glow. The end.

    15. "Makes a Rainbow" (Season 3, Episode 7)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    This may be her happiest ensemble and is absolutely the most LGBTQ-friendly. What's not to love?

    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)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    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.

    12. "In The Rain Forest" (Season 3, Episode 11)

    Scholastic Entertainment

    The woman is simultaneously saving the rainforest while uni-cycling. NBD.

    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.

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

    Scholastic Entertainment

    I mean, there are test tubes on her dress and she is wearing a flower crown. That is all.

    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.

    4. "Inside Ralphie" (Season 1, Episode 3)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    Um, the bottle of cough syrup on her dress is actually pouring medicine into a spoon. It is helpful and magical all at once!

    3. "Kicks Up A Storm" (Season 1, Episode 13)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    Polka raincoat? Check. Adorable hat? Check. Fancy gloves? Check. Magic wellies that can fit with cute flats underneath them? Check. EVEN MORE MAGICAL DRESS AND EARRINGS that flash lightning bolts? Check and check.

    2. "The Busasaurus" (Season 2, Episode 3)

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    Hi. These are PINK AND RED Stegosaurus booties. She is shutting it the fuck down.

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

    Scholastic Entertainment
    Scholastic Entertainment

    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.
