RIP Mr. Wizard

Anyone growing up in the 80s and had Nickelodeon is just gonna shed a tear over this one. Mr. Wizard passed away at the ripe old age of 90. Best known for involving kids in interactive science experiments, he was like the old grandpa that Phillip Bauer could never be.

His show was on during a more innocent time, when it wasn’t weird for older men to be hanging around a bunch of pre-pubescent kids of all races, genders and age. Ahhh…. the innocence of the 80s has truly died today.

And now it’s time for his final experiment. How many years does it take to get to the center of a cultural icon?
