STREET DATE: July 30, 2013

SRP: REVVING UP ($24.95)/IN A PICKLE ($12.95)

We were so excited to get these DVDs, my little guys could not wait to watch Revving Up especially because of the crane on the cover of the DVD set!  It was a great indicator of what they be watching.  How exciting to learn about engines, structures, computers, electricity, energy and so much more!  In A Pickle was a big hit because what kids don’t like to learn about stinky stuff and more?  Well definitely not little boys at least not mine!


Take a fun and education-filled road trip this summer with Ms. Frizzle and her incredible bus, as everyone’s favorite teacher makes learning exciting with two ALL-NEW DVD releases: THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: REVVING UP and THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: IN A PICKLE!

Explore everything from the smallest cell to the largest galaxy in twelve never-before-available episodes of the Emmy Award®-winning TV series in THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: REVVING UP. Each of the three discs in the set – “Under Construction,” “Getting Energized” and “Cracks a Yolk” – contains three new episodes running the gamut from computers and electricity to city critters and desert adaptation. And each DVD also contains a special bonus episode adding up to more than four-and-a-half hours of Frizz-tastic fun!

Ever wonder what’s behind a peculiar smell? Viewers who hop aboard the bus for IN A PICKLE are sure to find out across four never-before-released episodes including the title episode about microbes, along with “Meets Molly Cule,” “Makes a Stink” about smell and “Meets the Rot Squad” which covers decomposition.

Grab a seat and hang on in these all-new releases from the best-selling DVD franchise of the longest-running science series for kids to ever air on television.


Originally conceived by author Joanna Cole and illustrator Bruce Degen, “The Magic School Bus” has been capturing children’s imaginations since the first book rolled onto shelves in 1986. Since then, the acclaimed series has sold over 58 million books and spawned a cottage industry featuring the animated TV series which premiered on September 10, 1994. Adapting the books into the series was an opportunity to help kids learn about science in a fun way – and boy, has it ever! The longest-running science series to air on television, the star-studded program features the voices of Lily Tomlin, Wynonna Judd, Dolly Parton, Tony Randall and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Along with the adventurous and energetic Ms. Valerie Frizzle and her pet lizard, Liz, the entire class – along with the audience – was invited to explore volcanoes, the inside of the human body and much, much more!
