    [size=12pt]TV's Mr. Wizard, Don Herbert, Dies at 89[/size]
    WEDNESDAY JUNE 13, 2007 10:15 AM EDT
    By Stephen M. Silverman

    Don Herbert, who for three decades educated young TV viewers to the wonders of science as "Mr. Wizard," died on Tuesday.

    He was 89. Herbert, who had been battling bone cancer, passed away at his home in suburban Bell Canyon, Calif., his son-in-law, Tom Nikosey, told the Associated Press.

    His NBC show Watch Mr. Wizard, which was set in a science classroom, debuted in 1951, won a Peabody Award in 1954 and ran until 1964.

    In the '80s, Herbert starred in Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon. So established was he as a TV presence that he was a guest on the 1982 premiere episode of Late Night with David Letterman.

    R.I.P Mr. Wizard.


    I thought he would be smart enought to avoid dying.

    Negative my friend.
    Better things in life than to sit around glued to some sort of media device that is designed to control the mind.


    I'd rather be hunting or fishing or typing on this puter at work

    Thing is - Mr. Wizard had his hey days in the 1950s, when you would have been watching the boob tube and such.

    That was one of my favorite shows when I was younger. He used to make rockets out of household goods.

    RIP Mr. Wizard.

    I used to watch him, too. He did lots of interesting experiments with kids from the studio audience.

    We didn't have sunlight, let alone TV when I was growing up but I sure the heck ain't that old.
