the magic school bus makes a rainbow - full vhsApr 30, 2023
seat belts everyone please let this be a normal outing with a friend no way walking down that main street you're relaxing feeling good next thing you know you see the nostrils how come Rainbows are red on the outside and purple on the inside. The most beautiful combination looks first red then orange yellow green blue and then violet beautiful yes but why are they always like this is because the colors of the
rainbowcome out according to the length of the light waves I will show you red has the longest wavelength and violet the shortest huh hey arnold since when do you know so much about color since rocks and color are always my two favorite things and my
rainbowis going to be everyone's favorite thing that rainbow carlos you need color to make a rainbow no packaging of candies and lanterns but the candy wrappers color the light dream in carlos color is color and light is light like you and me have nothing in common says who says me this could get ugly dorothy ann thinks she knows everything cellophane red on white light gives me red light now if that ain't great i don't know what is ah what happened to my painting it turned red carlos you ruined it no you didn't it looks better than this way, but based on my research, rainbows are supposed to look like this, come on Dorothean.
Why do you have to do everything by the book and where did you get this book? Anyway, it's purple. Who has heard of a purple book? It's not purple, it's violets, violet purple. Do you think what is that noise? Let's check it out. Come on, Weasley wins Rwanda. We can't go in. It's Miss Frizzle's closet. Oh, be brave, Arnold. What if Miss Frizzle needs us? wish me luck the roses are red the apples are two to finish the rainbow i need some globe in the mirror and out whoa look at that light see fishing fishing hit that blue fish yeah no no no no i miss the blue eye i will never make it rainbow man, never seen a pinball game like this before oh thanks ralphie i made it myself you made it with the brilliant guidance of liz of course as you can see the game is played with white light instead of balls Steel, white light, that's right, Phoebe. white light is just another name for normal everyday light when you activate the panoramic pulse bumper you send a burst of white light into the machine and try to make a rainbow out of it hold it up rainbows are different colors how can you make a rainbow white light that's a great question keisha i have one more game to try i bet someone could light up all six colors of the rainbow if i win we keep the machine and if you lose this machine that liz and i built it will be taken away excuse me for a moment i said she needs us maybe we can help miss frizzle i don't see how you can help carlos this game is about color and you don't know anything about color remember so i know about light and you play with light pulses yeah but you need to get the colors of the rainbow so you need color not light color of light keep it like my great uncle lincoln douglas used to say it's not whether you're right or wrong it's how you play the game that counts pinball game across the bus miss frizzle i'm uh i'm not done making my rock rainbow so i was wondering if maybe i could know uh stay here stay here of course you can arnold buckle up for class and get ready for a colorful experience take them liz this way arnold she gets weirder all the time miss frizzle what's the deal let's play some serious pinball carlos and you and dorothy ann are in charge i'm in charge with him i'm not sure it's a good idea take him to the ready i just saw what i thought i saw arnold you saw the light i can't believe it we're actually inside the pinball machine is it just me or are we supposed to play the game from here now listen look closely at the score board in each game, they get six pulses of light to illuminate the six colors of the rainbow, so we need to bounce the light off one of those eye holes every time it sends a pulse of light down the duct, correct? you get that out of your purple book no carlos and it's purple whatever it's ok all scattered scattered we don't even know how to play the game but the best way to know is to do it so keep your eyes on the prize class you have a lot of fun with it light pulse number one, did you see that the colored lights came out of nowhere?
Quick, that's as slow as I could go. since you won't believe it until you see it look up here's a slow motion instant replay coming your way hey the white light went up the duct and bounced off a mirror then through that prism and out with all the colors of the rainbow in case you haven't seen dorothean that was a colored light coming out of the prism like a light that has different colors yeah well i saw we don't score oh and i almost forgot you only score when the light from it color goes into the eye of the same color blue in the blue red in red oh no isn't this exciting i find you have to keep the colored light bouncing off things until it hits the right color eye and scores easier said than done no yeah i think we saw the white light bounce off that mirror before it hit the prism so maybe if the red light hits this mirror we can bounce off the red eye but miss frizzle do you really think we should be playing pinball at
school? the director says mr rule oh you don't have to worry about him i need to worry about everything you want to send this pulse till shooting arnold but miss frizzle oh darling it's time to wait here? oh no, it's mr rule Miss Frizzle, what do we do?
He's early, would you mind entertaining him for a few minutes? Come on, Arnold, just think what will happen if he sees us like this. Hello, Mr. Rule. Good morning Arnold. hmm, I trust you'll be back soon, oh yes, very soon, I think I'm early, so I'll wait. the red light in the red eye ding ding ding ding ding is something wrong son no sir dang i'm fine sir ding ding ding so why are you uh dinging i don't know i guess i feel sometimes ding ding ding enough arnold what's it getting to the Miss Frizzle so long?
Well, I know that she was helping Dorothean with a light investigation. Oh, so maybe it's in the library. Good idea, Mr Rule. Let's go look in the library. the light bounced off this red tomato and then hit the mirror and then bounced off the target do you think we can do the same with the orange light pulse number three going up the trees hey the orange light disappeared how come and the green light go on? Well done class, you had the green, but you weren't going for the orange? Dorothean admitted. You made a mistake. Mistake. Why there are no errors.
Thank you, miss frizzle. as my friend chance used to say if you don't succeed at first find out why play again sam the orange light bounced off the mirror it hit the green clover and disappeared ok but the green light bounced off the same clover green and did not. disappear entered the green eye score hmm green light green clover green eye miss frizzle when we see something green it is by chance because it is green light what enters our eyes is indeed dorothean you just said an eye let me get this clear so when green light bounces off something green like clover and in our eyes we see green but when orange light hits green clover it disappears. we only have three chances left to do the rest of the rainbow so we have to sink two at a time or we're sunk what if orange and blue look good together? orange and blue is and remember to bounce the light you have to use something with the same color as the light wait for the blue fish too bad we don't have more orange and blue things to bounce the lights I see something blue what my sweatshirt is blue isn't it Is that what it means if you stand here and the blue light comes this way it will bounce off you and the blue eye but let it rip Miss Frizzle boss number four head out the door orange light hey how about where it gone?
The blue light just disappeared. The yellow bus swallowed up that blue light as if it were a jelly bean I told you Carlos you need something blue to bounce the blue light is that more information from your purple book I don't know why I saw it and for the last time it is violent so you see mr rule a blue fish is blue because it bounces only the blue light we see when it hits our eyes do you think if miss frizzle was all blue arnold miss fizzle isn't blue and she's not in this library sorry i missed my snack thinking ok arnold maybe she it's in the cafeteria and maybe i'm in trouble four pulses three colors in the rainbow a brilliant achievement keep it up class and this machine will be ours unless mr rule suspends us from
schoolfor the rest of our lives yes we have to give up hurry up, okay? what's the plan ok we just need three more colors yellow blue purple but don't forget we only have two pulses of light left try blue ok but let's try to get yellow too and this time we'll try to bounce the yellow light. the number five pulse yellow bus is ready to say what do you know miss frizzle isn't here either it's not that amazing you know what's amazing arnold is you know so much about color and so little about where miss frizzle is we're getting back to your classroom now man your battle stations excuse me you don't mean person your color stations just do it dorothean it's ok we only have purple left when we win the game it's ok miss frizzle shoot the last slide in sight it's rainbow time tortilla coming straight to you and all for your book violet violet carlos violets thanks to your class we can keep the game on the bus okay liz let's get out of here hey liz try to get on oh man oh man oh batman ok we can't don't get out we'll be pinball kids forever what I'm sorry I couldn't have been more help Mr.
Rule here let me open the door how about the nurse's office? I want to try the nurse's office. i'm going to do miss frizzle are you there it's mr rule oh don't worry class be back in a flash now what a good morning mr rule i told you i'd be back soon we'd have time arnold we'll discuss the meaning of the word soon arnold i think i left my color notes in the closet see if you can get them out ok um yeah miss frizzle right now guys what's going on in there we can't get out oh you know he went in there turning into light maybe that's the only way out hey arnold you're a genius we got in his light we'll get his light out liz you have to turn the bus into light again watch out liz you have been prismatic the prison divided us into six colors of light we are a living rainbow now how do we get out of here if liz turns us back into light we can just walk out of here thats true tim but so there will still be six of you great then i can be my own basketball team right dorothy there is nothing in your book wait a minute if the prison splits white light into colors what if we all went backwards through the prison maybe we would let's remix let's go back to prison sounds like a plan to me alright y'all lizzies listen when i'll hit the flipper and flip you to the prism and then you'll turn it back to light i got it ready here we go one , two, three, what was that? out miss frizzle why thanks arnold let them out what is that supposed to mean hmm we figured it out miss mist all the colors of the rainbow are hidden in ordinary light and you can use a prism to separate them and when you mix the colors of light they come back together, you get ordinary light again which means white light is
fullof color thats where the color of lights comes from talking about color and light did you make the rainbow because if you didnt the pinball machine it's mine? the one who gets the machine so did you do the rainbow or not actually i didn't what a shame we all did it i couldn't have done it without the help of my blue ribbon students you mean i can i don't have the pinball machine no but you can come here and play it whenever you want.
Can I really play it now? Absolutely, oh thank you Miss Frizzle, I guess I owe you an apology. Carlos, colors come from light. I know that ruins your painting because there is only a red light shining on it. Now I have returned to you all your colors, including purple violet. Dorothean's purple is this, the
magical school bus. This is the
magicschool business. your program in color but there is no way you can have a light pinball machine like the one you showed light travels too fast ok so we tweaked it a bit but if we didn't reduce the speed of light we don't you would be able to see it move but i'm still not sure about that with carlos placing the colored candy wrapper over his flashlight it works that really works of course it works transparent things like candy wrappers and theater gels act like doors they let their own color through of light and block out all the other colors wow that's really cool i'll try that myself bye thanks for calling the magic school bus your iridescent leader here hello with all that talk about light and color you never did answer the keisha's question about how the person
makesa rainbow of light, you're right, I'll go super slow motion and show you how it works when the light travels through the glass, it slows down just a little bit, not that low of course. but slow enough so that the colors oflight bends some more than others depending on their color the bending action is what spreads the colors out and
makesthem into a rainbow i get it now thats amazing the way i made a rainbow out of my garden hose but i thought that I saw more colors in the rainbow.
How come you only showed six correctly? Again, a rainbow contains all the colors from red to purple, but we only show the six that most people see and you know I bet you could make a pinball machine using light. you think so take a really powerful laser put a beam of light into a shot and bounce it off the targets what do you think i think you're right thanks for calling liz this is great.
