New TV Episodes From Scholastic
Although January is coming to a close, Scholastic had a great roundup of shows from Dragon and Magic School Bus. Watching The Magic School Bus with my boys brought back great memories from when I used to watch it in elementary school. And oldie but goodie. Dragon is a show that we hadn’t seen until now, but the synopsis of the show is cute.
About Dragon from their website:
Dragon, a series for pre-school children, is set in an imaginary world and explores themes that are universally identifiable to children everywhere. The series captures the endearing and often insightful life stories of our lovable hero, Dragon and his wonderful team of friends.
After reading about Dragon, and exploring the website about him a bit, I thought it would be a good fit for my boys. However, the screener we got had English and Spanish dubbed over each other. While I’m sure this is not how it is aired, I turned it off after about 5 minutes as Chandler kept telling me he couldn’t understand. It does seem like a cute series, and we’ll have to watch for it broadcast on our local channel.
The new episodes for January featured “Dragon’s Rainy Day Fun” and “Dragon’s Upside Down House.”
The Magic School Bus
I would hope that most of you reading know about The Magic School Bus, but just in case you don’t, here’s a little background:
Based on the best-selling Emmy Award winning series by Scholastic, the star-studded The Magic School Bus is the longest running science series ever – featuring the voices of Lilly Tomlin, Wynonna Judd, Dolly Parton, Tony Randall and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Buckle your seatbelts and travel along with Ms. Fizzle, her pet lizard, Liz, and the entire class exploring volcanoes, inside the human body and more – right from your own TV! When you’re on the Bus with the Friz, you never know what’s going to happen next!
The new episodes aired this month include “The Magic School Bus Gets Lost in Space” and “For Lunch.” I know Chandler really liked the Space episode and kept asking me questions as we watched it. Arnold’s cousin Janet joins the class and is consistently comparing her school with Arnold’s. She doesn’t believe Arnold about their field trips, until Ms. Frizzle gets them lost in space. It was a fun learning episode, and The Magic School Bus is just as great as I remembered.
All in all, a great lineup this month from Scholastic. Be sure to check your listings for times and channels as February is sure to be a great month as well!
