Valerie Felicity Frizzle, that eponymous educator. Who could pull off a printed dress like her? Voiced by Lily Tomlin, this beloved teacher took kids, animated and at home, on journeys into the worlds of scientific adventure. And let’s be real, she looked good doing it. Her catchphrases were words to live by and it’s no wonder she had pirate-blood in her veins. She was basically fearless.
I leave you now with her immortal words: “Take chances! Make mistakes! Get messy!”
