Happy Birthday, Mr. Wizard!


Am I the only one old enough to remember B&W TV and the science experiments of Mr. Wizard? Don Herbert is 89 years old today.

Yes, you are the only one old enough to remember that show. Somehow some of those memories got transferred to me, though. I always knew you were losing your mind. See you in Austin on Friday.

Nope, I remember him too. That's why I come to your blog. For hope I'm not the only person who can remember these things. Thanks

Always glad to have you drop by, Patti, for whatever reason.

Scott, I've been losing my mind for years. See you at ConMisterio.

I remember the show, but preferred to watch cowboy movies/TV shows.

I never learned much science from the show, I'm afraid. Do you remember Pat Paulson's take on the show, with Mr. Wizard as a dirty old man? Unfortunately that's what has stuck with me over the years.

Paulsen's version was a lot funnier.

Yes, you're the only one.

No, I'm lying. Of course I remember Mr. Wizard, but I rarely watched the show. I had no idea he was still around.
