Trivia

With this, the series' final episode, Ms. Frizzle and the kids have (allowing for artistic license) visited/studied all the things described in the theme song. Here, they visit the ocean ("spank a plankton, too"). Previously, they'd dealt with sound ("Surfin' on a sound wave" - #1.08, In the Haunted House), examined the different kind of stars ("Swingin' through the stars" - #4.07, Sees Stars), studied the human digestive tract ("Take a left at your intestine" - #1.02, For Lunch) and explored the solar system ("Take your second right past Mars" - #1.01, Gets Lost in Space). They "Navigate a nostril" in #1.03, Inside Ralphie (an episode about germs and the immune system); study volcanism ("Raft a river of lava") in #2.01, Blows Its Top and "get baked into a pie" (actually a cake) in #1.09, Gets Ready, Set, Dough. Although they never find an "octopus in the neighborhood", the kids do visit the ocean several times and spend one episode (#3.03 - Spins a Web) trapped in a 1950s B-movie where they have to help defeat a giant praying mantis that's destroying a town.
