Storyline

In this show, which works like a cross between Mr. Wizard and Monty Python, the science teacher, Beakman answers viewer questions about science. With the help of his assistants Josie and Lester the Rat, he uses various methods like animation, interviews with famous dead people of science and simple experiments to illustrate scientific principles.

Some of the Best of Beakman's World
27 September 2000 | by (Montoursville, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

In this video, there are some of the highlights of the award winning show, "Beakman's World". There, of course, aren't all the best things on this tape, yet it is very funny and educational. It mostly features Beakman and Lester, but Josie, Herb, and Don are in it, too. I wish I could find the show on tv, though.
