  • Its location in the television saga canon was unknown and debatable, until the episode In the Zone. Even though the state for the school is not specified, in the original series version of the ending theme song, "Is This the Magic School Bus?", the Walkerville area code is 224, the code for the northern Chicago suburbs. This implied that Walkerville is located in Illinois. In "Kids in Space", the class lands back on Earth near Florida, which might have implied that the school is in Florida. Out of This World implied, through a dream sequence, that Walkerville is located in New Mexico. There are also some fans who believed its location to be Rhode Island.
    • Walkerville was confirmed to be located in Virginia in the song "Time Zones" from the episode, In the Zone. Joanna Cole lived in Virginia prior to her death.
  • It was named for Craig Walker, who inspired Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen to write the Magic School Bus books.
