It was all about a mix of entertainment and learning.
25 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

It was all about having fun and learning at the same time. I remember watching this anytime I could catch it on México's cultural channel by excellence (channel 11).

I watched it's reruns and never got tired of it because I have to admit that I learned a lot from it.

I didn't care if I was out of school or whatever, Beakman taught me on biology, science, physics aspects. I had a great time with the show's colorful art direction and atmosphere.

The performances were funny and witty. I just was addicted to this show. It's sad to admit that when puberty comes to you, you just can't help but forget about such great shows like this one.

I wish my kids will have the chance to watch it.
