Goodbye Mr. Wizard


Some sad news to post, I just saw that Don Herbert died of bone cancer yesterday. Herbert was the host of one my absolute favorite shows when I was a kid, Mr. Wizard's World, which aired on Nickelodeon from 1983-1990. He also hosted Watch Mr. Wizard for an amazing 14 years from 1951-1965. 547 episodes. That's like 23 seasons of a regular King of Queens style sitcom. That is a lot of episodes. I remember the day he taught us how to pick up a paper plate using a completely full upside down cup of water without spilling the water. Man did it suck if you did that trick wrong, you were mopping the floor for the next 3 minutes. But the crowd went wild if you pulled the trick off.

Be sure to stop by Mr. Wizard Studios for all your Mr. Wizard needs.
