How'd They Build That? series to release school bus title

Posted on February 11, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Marvelous Media will release a DVD giving a behind-the-scenes look at how a school bus is built, from assembly to hitting the road.

The How'd They Build That? series shows how different types of large vehicles are built, including frame stamping, engine installation, paint, final inspection and activation.

The programs combine high-definition live action with 3-D animation and also highlight “Fun Facts” on screen during the program.

“School Bus” shows each stage of assembly involved in building a yellow school bus at the IC Bus factory in Tulsa, Okla. The plant features "The Green Mile," an assembly line that's more than a mile long.

"School Bus," available in stores on Feb. 24, recently received the Dove Foundation's "Seal of Approval" for quality in children's entertainment.

The DVDs are recommended for ages 4 and older and retail for $8.99 each. To order, visit www.marvelousmedia.net or call (888) 251-3661.
