Don Herbert, who for what seems like a million years, taught youngsters like myself the wonders of science as "Mr. Wizard," died on Tuesday. He was 89. Goddamn.
Herbert, who had been battling bone cancer, passed away at his home in suburban Bell Canyon, California.
In the '80s, Herbert starred in Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon. Check out the commercial for the show up above there. Funny shit.
Not his death. The show, duh.
