Wishing they bring this show back
4 February 2003 | by (East Chicago Indiana) – See all my reviews

When this show came out I was in the 3rd grade and we would make sure to watch it.The reason being is that our teacher would ask us questions about it the following day.This show was so ahead of it's time that everybody in our school room wanted to be a scientist.the show itself did not last long,but it left a big impression on all of us.Even the theme song was nice to listen to,it made you feel that it was written especially for it.I wish they'll bring back that show like they,ve done with so many other shows as reruns.I miss those shows very much.
