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.

Love The Beakman
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the 1990's I worked for a video post production facility that made broadcast air masters for Beakman's World. Whenever someone was needed to do quality control on a finished tape I would beg for the assignment so that I could watch this wonderful show (and even get paid for it!!!). Even though I was in my mid 40's at the time I always enjoyed the humor that the performers brought to the subject of science.

I recently (June 2013) watched "The Pirate" starring Gene Kelly and Judy Garland. There is a song in the film called "Be a Clown" that is performed by Gene Kelly and Judy Garland. While listening I suddenly realized that Lester the Rat sang a song called "Be a Mouse" on Beakman's World that used the melody from "Be a Clown".

LONG LIVE THE BEAKMAN!!!
