Mr. Wizard passed away from bone cancer yesterday. I'm very sad. He and Mr. Rodgers were two of the real quality role models for boys on television while I was growing up. Mr. Rodgers for being the quintessential friend who said it was all right for me to be me, and Mr. Wizard for showing how much fun you can have around your house with stuff that's already sitting in your mom's cupboard*.
Anyway, if you were a fan of the Mr. Wizard's world show on Nickelodeon, here's a total flashback:
Man, I'ts been *years* since I'd seen that. Thanks, YouTube!
* Mom: "Where's the baking soda?" Me: "We ran out!" Mom: "Were you making volcanos again?"
