A very fond THANKS Mr. Wizard
26 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was great show for kids. Mr Wizard was always interesting showing kids things they had never seen before. And explaining how things worked. Mr. Wizard never seemed to lose interest in teaching kids, I've seen him a number of times since his series was taken off the air, and he still loves to teach science. You were an inspiration Mr Wizard, a lot of us really looked up to you.
