Although this would not be considered a Mormon thing. Many Mormon children who were baby boomers, or those that grew up in the late 80s early 90s would remember Mr. Wizard. When I was about 5 years old I would watch Mr. Wizard’s World all the time. I loved the show. Recently I found the website http://www.mrwizardstudios.com/ here you can buy box sets of the show from the 1950s and 60s called “Watch Mr. Wizard” you can also purchase the Nickelodeon version as well that was done in the 80s. My boy who wants to be an Astronaut when he grows up loves the show as it teaches about science. Although the box sets are a bit of money they are well worth the cost. You will get hours of entertainment from them. Think about it, you go to Denny’s and pick up a sandwich, fries and a drink and pay 20 – $30 or $70 if you take your whole family. For about that much you can get a large set of Mr. Wizard DVDs that will last a lifetime.
I would recommend to anybody that they get these, this is what peaked my interest in science and technology.
