12 06 2007

Its a sad day for all of geekdom.  Mr. Wizard has passed away.

Don Herbert, 89; TV’s ‘Mr. Wizard’ taught science to young baby boomers – Los Angeles Times
Don Herbert, who explained the wonderful world of science to millions of young baby boomers on television in the 1950s and ’60s as “Mr. Wizard” and did the same for another generation of youngsters on the Nickelodeon cable TV channel in the 1980s, died Tuesday. He was 89.

This guy made me WANT to learn, no matter what the subject was.

Here’s to you Don!

Rest well, you deserve it.

Aw, that’s a shame. I watched that show all the time when I was little. Though, I was only 1 whenever it came out the first year. 😀
