    21 Times "The Magic School Bus" Was Completely Messed Up

    Take chances, make mistakes, get messed up for life.

    1. Firstly, jet-thrusters and NO SEATBELTS? MS. FRIZZLE LITERALLY SHOUTS IT IN THE THEME SONG.

    2. What about how often the students were encouraged to shoot each other with shrink-rays. That's not OK.

    3. Or when the damn bus altered gravity to the point where Phoebe weighed 450lbs, and Ralphie called her out on it? Ralphie, you asshole.

    4. Speaking of Phoebe:

    5. Or how about the fact that the bus had a "turn Phoebe into beanstalk" button ON THE DASHBOARD?

    6. What, that not weird enough for you? What about the specific button TO TURN THE KIDS INTO BEES???

    7. Or when Ralphie was like "hey let me fuck around with these knobs" and his entire class was completely flattened?

    8. Or when Arnold gets turned into a giant and went on this jurassic lark? That's a T-Rex, Arnold, it will rip your face off, you dickhead.

    9. What about when he thought it was at all appropriate to take his helmet off on Pluto to prove a point?

    10. What about the time Ms Frizzle was this TERRIFYING crab monster?

    11. Sure it was totally messed up when the kids were turned into terrifying creatures. But ever think about the consequences of all that time manipulation?

    12. Seriously, there has to be ramifications for all this these time warps?!?

    13. They travel through so much time, you guys. That's bonkers.

    14. Speaking of bonkers. Remember when the bus was a giant fuck-off spider? WHAT?!

    15. AND THEN SPIDER-BUS PROBABLY KILLED THIS PIZZA DELIVERY GUY?

    16. There's also that time the kids got turned into water, and Carlos PUT HIS FIST INSIDE ARNOLD???

    17. I can hear the comments now. "You have a dirty mind." OH REALLY?

    18. Okay...

    19. ...maybe you have a point.

    20. But...

    21. C'MON. THIS IS JUST WRONG.

    Sure, The Magic School Bus may have been completely messed up, but it was absolutely iconic. Thanks for the ride of our lives, Ms. Frizzle!
