Ready, Set, Fail! The Good, the Bad, and the Gnocchi Send in the Clouds

The Good, the Bad, and the Gnocchi is the seventh episode of the second season of The Magic School Bus Rides Again. It is about simple machines.

Synopsis

Carlos invites Mikey over to the Tennelli family's Italian restaurant. They race to the restaurant, where they meet the students, to look at Ralphie's spaghetti display. Ms. Frizzle enters and suggests that the two race there, so she uses the Bus and shrinks everyone to the display. The boys pick teams of students to reach to the top of the mountain and claim a giant piece of cannoli dubbed "the gold". With the help of simple machines made from fresh artisan Italian food, they could escape from Ralphie's ravenous dog, Noodles, and claim the gold.
