I saw a couple episodes of this in the 1980s and always wondered why it didn't catch on. The theme song (with a silly backstory about how Dr. Science got his degree) was cool, and I can still sing it, especially the last line: "I know more than you do, call me Dr. Science!" The supporting cast was fine, but the star of the show was Dan Coffey as the bombastic, self-important Dr. Science, who came up with absolutely insane answers for the questions sent in by "viewers". In one, for instance, temporal dislocations were explained by reference to "time flies", which were supposedly insects that had to be eradicated before things could go back to normal. At the end of each show, they'd all stand around and make nutty conversation holding coffee mugs with their names on them: "Judy", "Dr. Science", etc. Lots of fun. I've never seen any clips of the show anywhere, but I'll keep looking.
