    Loved the show that was on Nickelodeon, but could never attempt any of the experiments.

    RIP guy I'm not sure I ever saw.

    Oh, Mr. Wizard - thanks to you I am an engineer, though it was a field closed to me in childhood. Thanks to you, I learned to experiment, to place value on the scientific method, to continue to learn and to eventually work in a job I have loved. You inspired a whole generation - we wouldn't be where we are today without you.
