The original show, which focused on lessons about science and technology, won Lily Tomlin (who voiced teacher Ms Frizzle) a Daytime Emmy and was based on the book series by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degan.

"Scholastic Media is a powerhouse creator and producer of top-quality programming for kids and families and its flagship series like "The Magic School Bus," "Clifford The Big Red Dog" and "Goosebumps" have been huge hits on Netflix in all our territories," Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix said. 

Known as "The Magic School Bus 360º," the CG animated show will appear on Netflix in 2016 with 26 episodes.
