    I was watching Mr. Wizard when I was a kid and my uncle said he was in the Army with him. My uncle is also a wise ass. So
    I never knew if he was lying or not.

    Best parts were always when his “corrections” didn’t work either.

    I respected him but thought him an asshole at the same time.

    That’s not the same Mr. Wizard I remember.

    Must be a newer show, like the Mickey Mouse Club when Brittney Spears was a Mousketeer and Annette was married with kids.

    Also it’s in color. Mr. Wizard I remember was B&W.

    I could see MrWizard pushing the one kid forward so that the sand filled tin can hits him in the face and then saying, “I guess I was wrong!”.

    How many of those kids ended up whacking other kids at school with an AR-15?

    Do you think he molested the boys or the girls?

    @Boobie – agreed. Mr. Wizard was in black & white and not a dick.

    I know BFH hate this statement, “Who is he”?

    Seriousy, I must have been spared and I am 45 years old.I mean, I know Mr. Rogers, and Bill Nye the athiest guy, Captain Kangaroo, Romper Room, Zoom, The Magic Garden, but “Mr. Wizard”? Nope.

    Mr. Wizard didn’t hand out ‘Participation’ trophies.

    This was before children were in charge, or even giving the President his policy talking points.

    They used to play the original Mr. Wizard films in Jr. High science class. He’d always end the show with “And now you know everything about Gravity” or whatever the topic.

    I remember him from the ’50s. Apparently by the ’70s he was just a cranky old man.

    No wonder I loved his show. I also have no room for stupidity. This is why I am on the computer instead of watching TV and seeing the Chief Golfer of America getting another 4 year crown.
