    A very exciting and funny episode! Here, Ralphie imagines how his life would be like if his "robot" would do chores for him. So, Ms Frizzle takes the bus and her class to R.U. Humerus' extraordinary Body Shop for repairs. Surprisingly, Ralphie seizes the opportunity to build a robot to do his chores. The class joins in and they discover how bones, joints and muscles work together to help us move. But they do the job a little too well, and the Ralphiebot starts to take over. So the robot goes berserk and causes havoc on the shop and Ralphie stopes it by loosing off it's bolts and other mechanics off and the robot goes byebye. Now with that, the shop is saved. Overall, I rate this episode a 90%!moreless

    I absolutely love this episode. This was actually one of the funnier episodes. It starts with the class playing volleyball, all except Ralphie, who's cleaning the bus. Ralphie wishes he could build a robot to do his class chores, and Keesha makes a bet with him that he can't.



    This episode is full of burns (as Kelso on "That 70's Show" would say), which is always fun. Ralphie says all they have to do is build a robot that looks like him, and Carlos hold a hub cap up to his face and says, "Like this?". When the first Ralphie-bot doesn't move, the girls say "He doesn't move or bend! He doesn't do anything!", Keesha laughs and says, "Haha, just like Ralphie!" Ralphie tells one of the Ralphie-bots to bow to "his ruler and master, Ralphie the Magnificent!". It doesn't, and Arnold says "It's not bowing." and Keesha says, "Would you blame it? I wouldn't either."



    In the end, when they get a working Ralphie-bot, it terrorizes the class when it tries to clean the bus. Keesha says the bet's off, and they stop the Ralphie-bot.



    A very good episode, indeed.moreless
