      The best experiment was the one where you put your arms against the doorway for as long as you could and when you walked out into the room, your arms would rise by themselves. So cool.

          I liked this show but was too chicken to try any of the experiments.

                I remember that banana experiment! I tried it and it worked! I was so proud. The optical illusion one with the two playing cards was my fav.

                        mr.wizard was the man. i learned how to make a piece of string stick to an ice cube by putting salt on the ice and laying the string on it from this guy. i also remember an episode where he was slicing a banana without peeling it by taking a needle and thread and putting it through the banana in all kinds of crazy patterns. damn i wanna be a kid again.

                          i think i might've been a little too young for this.

                              Kinda harsh here, but the "NEW" generations have lower IQs than we do.

                                This used to be on at 6:30am. I would watch it every morning while I was getting ready for school!

                                  What the fuck, I used to LOVE that show. Mr.Wizard was the shit...

                                    I have never watched this before. Sounds boring. All it does is just teaches you how to do stuff.

                                      I remember this show running on Nickelodeon at like 2:00 a.m. When nothing else was on, Mr. Wizard was there.

                                        Wow... It's been so long. Too long. Why don't they have THESE shows on, they were so much more educational than the crap they try to use to broaden young minds today. Mr. Wizard was straight to the point learning. I actually learned quite a bit watching that show, and for as young as I was when it aired, I actually enjoyed it.

                                            MAN, this show brings back memories!! This show ROCKED!!!
                                              15 years, 4 months ago
                                              wow I didn't know this show has been on until 2000 but it was probably on at 6:00am. I remember when I was like 7 I would wake up somewhere like around 6:00am and I would turn on the TV and they would show Mr. Wizard's World. I never heard of this show at all before I got up at 6:00am but when I first woke up at that time I turned on the TV and they were showing Mr. Wizard's World which was when I first saw it and I was all like "what the heck is this?" I didn't know what it was but I've been waking up at 6:00am watching Mr. Wizard's World and I didn't think it was a bad show. But then sometime while I would watch that show, I saw a VHS tape of that show at the library.

                                                  15 years, 7 months ago
                                                  This is one of my faves too. There are DVD sets out /coming out!

                                                    15 years, 7 months ago
                                                    Ah good old Mr. Wizard... When I took a break from watching non-stop cartoons on Nick, I'd tune him in once in a while to see what he would explode or whatever. I can't remember specific experiments, but I do remember him ^^
                                                      15 years, 8 months ago
                                                      The freezing episode, the different colored flames episode, and sucking soda through a 40ft straw are my favorites :D...

                                                      Summertime, that was actually liquid Nitrogen, Nitro-Glycerine is a HIGH explosive, Mr. Wizard never woulda servived that one...

                                                      And PJ, that vampire duck was Count Duckula, hehe... all that matters is that you remember :D

                                                        THis show Rock my socks off every saturday... Remembering he had one of the first Radar-gun and the kid said he seen one when his father got "pull over" once..

                                                        Yes Beta_XY, they did get away with a lot of things that they can't these days, like the one episode of Nitro-Glycerine- freezing the hell out of stuff. Great show'
