Lessons Learned From Cultural Icons

Netflix recently announced the Magic School Bus is being charged up again for a brand new show! The Magic School Bus 360° is planned to roll out in 2016 and we’re excited to spread the news! This reminded us of some of the happy days, along with their memorable lessons!

It's only appropriate we start with the educational gem that started it all -- The Magic School Bus. Ms. Frizzle took us on some pretty spectacular adventures every Saturday morning. Who didn't love going with the class inside the human body? Ms. Frizzle and her gang of smarty pants taught us that school is cool! Learning doesn't have to be boring. Never stop learning!

Oh, Doug Funny. Doug and his pal Skeeter took us through their everyday lives of being an awkward tween. Whether Doug was trying to get the courage to ask Patty Mayonnaise to the school dance or talk his way out of a scuffle with the school bully Roger Klotz, he showed us it's okay to be different. Be true to yourself and stay confident!

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is one of the greatest children's stories ever. In this literary masterpiece, a boy and a tree share a loving but difficult friendship. As the boy grows older, he takes advantage of the tree's selfless and generous nature. In the end, the boy realizes all he ever needed was the tree's love. The lesson here is that sometimes monetary or physical gifts aren't what makes life special. Friendship, love and being with those who make you happy trump all.

As long as you have a roof over your head and people who love you, you have everything in the world.

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake.
