Ms. Frizzle and her class along with an inventive high-tech bus that invites children on high-flying hijinks that introduce the incredible world of science.
According to Rolling Stone, “Miranda’s new theme puts a contemporary spin on Peter Lurye’s original, trading a jaunty rock and roll sound for snappy drum machines and synth stabs. Miranda, however, does keep the song’s original lyrics and delivers an energetic vocal performance befitting the theme song’s original singer, Little Richard.”
