The real Mr. Wizard is gone now but during his years on Canadian Broadcasting Company, he was really the science guy of my generation. Episodes of the show were aired frequently and on Nickelodeon in it's hey day or when I was growing up. Nickelodon looked to the North for children's programming. Since they stopped showing Canadian shows, the network has never been the same. Mr. Wizard played by Don Herbert made science fun without being intimidating or without being a snob. Mr. Wizard was one of those shows that allowed science to be fun but it was not as entertaining as Bill Nye. It didn't have to be because we still watched the show anyway. I believed the show was film in Calgary or somewhere in Canada. I still desire to visit there since the 1988 Winter Olympics. Today's Mr. Wizard is Bill Nye but still I do miss Don Herbert's Mr. Wizard and the kids who made science fun for thirty minutes.
