    I used to watch Mr. Wizard's World when I was young and I absolutely loved it! I hated to read this morning that he had passed away.

    There are teachers who made learning fun, and he was definately one of them. (I also really like Bill Nye the science guy)

    Don Herbert earned the Distinguished Flying Cross, and an Air Medal with 3 oak leaf clusters, as an Army Air Corps B-24 pilot.(That means he was very good)

    Wow, i hate hearing that.
    I used to watch Mr. Wizards World on the early Nicklodean network in the 80's (before they became influenced too much by MTV). It was one of my favorite shows and i still remember some of the stuff i learned on there and pass it on to my kids too.

    I watched his show a lot on Nick as a boy, I am sad to hear this!

    I pray he knew the Lord personally.

    On NICK?!!? I just realized you are the same age as one of my kids. Thanks for making me feel old!

    I too am saddened to hear of Mr. Wizard's death.

    I will forever use the term "Mr. Wizard" as an homage, and I'll not use it in a perjorative way.

    I loved the show as a kid, too. Gonna miss him. Gosh I feel old :tear:
