  • The class tries to bake a birthday cake for Ms. Frizzle.

    A perfect episode that can teach you about birthdays! Here, the class throws a party for the Fritz when they realize... THERE'S NO CAKE! AAHHH! But they go to a local bakery and when the bus is not working properly, they send her to a local repair shop as a distraction when they make a cake free for her. As D.A. learns the combination on air using some chemicals, the Fritz comes back and tells her about her experiment until her mind rings a bell. Flat tire repai. She leaves and the class continues to bake, until the baker cooks all the class inside the baked cake. So when the Fritz comes in, they use D.A.'s experiment to get out of the oven. And when they do, the Fritz comes inside with a surprise party for her with the cake. Now they enjoy the party and the episdoe ends. Overall, I rate this episdoe a 90%!moreless
  • In the top 5 List

    I will start out with the very small complaint I have: That being, whenever a special episode about a main character arrises they should say the real date in the episode (example: Ms. Frizzle's B-Day). But here all we have is that her birthday could be on November 5. This is not likely though, due to the fact it aired on a Saturday, but in the classroom it should be a Monday-Friday date.

    The thing I really like about this episode though is that it shows how much the class cares for Ms. Frizzle and vice-versa. Throwing a surprise B-Day party for her and Ms. Frizzle helping out with DA's experiment. It also shows that she cares for the bus, by her fixing it!

    The episode shows you that chemical reaction don't just take place with chemicals but in baking as well!moreless
