    Don Herbert (Mr. Wizard) dies at 89

    My heart goes out to his family and his fans. What a contribution to the world. I used to wake up at 4am just to watch him on Nickelodeon in the 80s. I have seen some video of his 60's shows and they're just as remarkable. The world got a huge amount from this man and he will surely be missed.

    I loved watching that show in B&W.

    Mr. Wizard........I watched as a child and then as a father.......Truly an educator and a communicator. He made science fun and interesting! He'll be missed!
