If the mantra of your childhood was "Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy," then you're in for a treat. Netflix is officially bringing back the science-fueled cartoon every '90s kid loved to daydream about in school: The Magic School Bus. That means a whole new generation of kids will hop aboard Ms. Frizzle's famous bus for enthralling field trips, learning plenty about their class subjects along the way. But how much of the iconic educational cartoon will harken back to the original series? We've got every detail out there all in one place, so you can start getting excited.
