Is Ms. Frizzle something like a Willy Wonka who is teaching the class to find a successor to the Magic School Bus?



* CrackShip: Some of the fandom likes involving Ms. Frizzle in crossover lesbian relationships with MaryPoppins (both are [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lords]], apparently) or CarmenSandiego.
** According to tumblr, Carlos apparently grows up to be the perfect, wonderful scientist who moves into [[Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale Night Vale]] and falls in love with the host, Cecil.

** Also, footage from the show seems to be popular for WebAnimation/YouTubePoop (although, given the NostalgiaFilter protection the show has garnered in North America, it's probably {{affectionate|Parody}} more than anything).

* NightmareFuel: While on Pluto, Arnold takes his helmet off and [[SpaceIsCold his head freezes]].
** As well as the extremely creepy sound episode.
* PeripheryDemographic: The series has gained a large amount of older fans, many of whom grew up with it.
** It helps that both the facts (for the most part) are still relevant and the characters are interesting.
** Older fans have been known to revisit the show because of how much they forgot that they had learned in elementary.

* DarkFic: A more depressing than dark example as a [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/512598 Flash Animation]], following Ms. Frizzles class the following school year. No longer being in Ms. Frizzles' class, Arnold is an abusive and foul-mouthed {{jerkass}}, Tim and Ralphie are both potheads, Carlos continues to tell horrible jokes only to be beat up (by Arnold) for it, and none of them seem to carry any sort of social skills or even rudimentary math or general education (outside of science, of course).
** There's also a fanmade trailer for a hypothetical [[TheMovie movie]] that ''opens'' with the kids (now young adults) at Ms. Frizzle's funeral (which Arnold ''skips'', citing that he needed to stay home that day), Wanda delivering her "What are we going to do?" catchphrase in tears, Ms. Frizzle having gone to hell for a reason no one can figure out and Arnold calling Ms. Frizzle "the woman who ruined my life!", prompting Ralphie to pin him to the wall while snarling "Take it back!"
** As per any show like this, there is an endless supply of trollfics. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIyeKEcyUZY This one]], though, probably takes the cake in sheer absurdity.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One episode dealing with the parallel between baking and chemistry has a baker sing a silly cooking song to the tune of the ''Torriador March'' from ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}.'' Twenty years later, ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' turns this song into NightmareFuel.

** In Israel, the show was just called ‘The Magic Bus’ (because school buses are not as ubiquitous there). Unfortunately, ‘magic’ (or, more accurately, ‘acts of magic’) sounds a lot like ‘drugs’ in Hebrew (קסמים ''ksamím'' vs. סמים ''samím'', respectively). Cue many jabs from kids who’ve outgrown the series about the bus adventures being a case of MushroomSamba.
