The Magic School Bus

I composed and orchestrated three seasons of The Magic Schoolbus, working with of head composer Peter Lurye.

The shows were science lessons packaged as full-out adventure shows, as Miss Frizzle, portrayed by Lily Tomlin, led her students into outer space, into the human body, and inside such memorable objects as pickles and water treatment systems.

The show played on PBS, then Fox Network picked it up, and The Magic Schoolbus continues to play in markets around the country and around the world.

The entire Magic School Bus series is available on DVD.
