the show has quality educational value, and the field trips aren't "field trips". their straight-up adventures (with educational value). but here's something potentially funny about it: in one episode, the class goes on a "field trip" into outer space, and they think that Miss Frizzle has disappeared, and she gives them a "clue" about where she is: "the colder you get, the hotter you'll get." It wasn't a "clue"(which actually would have been better). It was straight-up a dead giveaway. I'm not using that as an unprofessional criticism. I just thought it might be potentially funny.
