Storyline

With the help of his young assistants, Mr. Wizard starts each episode with a demonstration that at first glance should be impossible, but is actually based firmly on basic scientific principles. Mr. Wizard's explanations are aimed at kids, but are in-depth enough to be educational and interesting for anyone. His experiments are usually kept simple enough for parents and kids to re-create at home. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

22 February 2004 | by (Don Herbert's Lab) – See all my reviews

Mr. wizard is the best. The opening theme was funny how the statue of the thinker says "hmmmm? hmmmm? A-ha!"I remember those creepy twins that would come over sometimes for experiments. I loved the episode when he made Cocoa Puffs explode with a strange chemical. The one where they were making the computer talk was cool too because it said "hello mister weez-Ard". I invented an electronic musical instrument and named it after him- the DonHerbertron.
