I'm glad they at least put in part of the episode where he forces the girl to eat an apple while doing a headstand. (I've never had food go UP that way before) I saw it as a kid, and he was saying "chew. chew. chew. SWALLOW." and i remember thinking "hmm i wouldn't be able to swallow an apple piece after 3 chews... that seems rude"

Even though I loved science, I was terrified of Mr. Wizard as a child. I was all about Dr. Fad. I would've done anything to get on Dr. Fad's show.

I watched "From Dusk Till Dawn" last night.

Mr. Wizard should have played the motel clerk.

Awesome, but they forgot the best one. Its my personal most memorable episode where he was teaching a kid about water displacement and forced him to get into a barrel of cold water and submerge himself over and over. The kid complained about the freezing water the entire time.

The best part: the whole premise was to measure his volume, but in the end Mr Wizard just used an unscientific bucket to collect the water and declared that the kid's volume was "8 and a half buckets!". So pointless that even as a kid I thought, jesus he did that just to water torture the kid.

I remember that one! Didn't they use clips from it for a lot of the Mr. Wizard bumpers on Nickelodeon?

I used to wake up early in the morning to watch Mr. Wizard before school.

Mr. Wizard was awesome.

He was the product of a time when being mistaken about something wasn't an unforgivable sin or proof that you were an inferior sub-human.

Nowadays, directly telling someone when they're wrong about something makes you an asshole, apparently.

I remember stay up all night with my friends for the first time on my birthday, watching Mr. Wizard and wondering what that was.

Now I know.

You suck in ways that are hard to articulate.

That was supposed to be 5 stars with the same quote. Whoops.

And today he would be sued. Mr. Wizard was way more awesome than I ever knew.

5 stars alone for WHAT?

More videos need the "crotchety old man syndrome" tag.
