    Yeah, I hope that the design will look better in a trailer or something since that image does seem a bit too generic for my tastes too.

    Wow, I haven't thought of this show in years... I bet they will tackle new technologies or new understandings in science, the original's science doesn't stand the test of time in places, but that's just a product of our understanding of the world growing and changing through the years. It's interesting that this is a sequel, I'm glad they aren't just doing a reboot, I've really been soured towards reboots in the last few years.

    Wholly agreed. To be fair the art style of the original show was also pretty standard compared to most other 90s toons, but it's hard to tell anything about Miss Frizzle's character from that design. She looks like she could be one of the principals from Equestria Girls. The original at least had her clothing and hair styles to go off of.

    I'm also very, very wary about what the quality of the animation will be like considering 9 Story is working on this. They handed off Hasbro's Pound Puppies to DHX after the first few episodes and although the art style stayed the same, the animation became less stiff and noticeably improved. Similarly, their takeover of Arthur led to a form of the uncanny valley effect with the same art style being done in cheap Flash.

    Either way, I hope the writing's good and this doesn't turn out like that new Bill Nye show (worst-case scenario).

    Really hope that the series isn't flash.

    Ms. Frizzle's new look really lacks the wackiness the old design really rocked.

    It's 9 Story Media Group we're talking about, of course it'll be animated in Flash.

    Which is odd because I vividly remember this show was going to be 3D-rendered, based on the concept art:

    I guess they must've changed their minds. I'm glad they did, CGI has been overused in so many shows nowadays.

    I'm not feeling it. I might watch it once just to say I did, but I don't have my hopes too high.

    Unless they change their mind and make the show like THIS, I'm still not going anywhere near this crap that's just waiting to happen, unfortunately. How can you NOT see the potential in this to be awesome!

    It's coming on September 29. The date and some footage can be seen starting at 1:56.


    Its Netflix page has also opened. There's not much, but it does correctly say that it's Ms. Frizzle's sister.

    I only just now saw the art style, and at least by its looks from the three seconds of footage available, the show looks so generic and mediocre, at least from a design perspective. Let's hope the show doesn't follow suit.

    Here's an image from the video if anyone's curious:

    I'm not one to compare art styles of animated shows to other animated shows, but I'll be darned if that's not Marco Diaz on the far right.

    So are these kids supposed to be related to the original kids? BTW this looks pretty bad.

    "voiced by Kate McKinnon"

    Hopefully Ms. Frizzle's sister will be like Holtzmann. :D I really hope Nick UK picks up the show (they aired the original in the nineties, and Nick Poland currently airs King Julian, so not impossible). :)

    Edit: Any news about Greenhouse Academy?
