Television's First Science Kids Show Hosted By Broadcast Pioneer & World War II Hero, Don Herbert! Two Half Hour Episodes In All Regions DVD Format!
Had the B-24 bomber he piloted been shot down, USAAF Captain Donald Jeffry Herbert might never have been known to so many American children after the war. As the fates would have it, he won the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service over Fortress Europe and he got to come home to fulfill his life's ambition, theatrical work. He landed choice acting assignments on a number of popular radio kid shows such as Captain Midnight, Jack Armstrong and Tom Mix. But it was on the fledgling medium of television that he was to make his indelible mark as a pioneer in childrens program, as he brought his vision of science education entertainment to pre-teen viewers in 1951 in the form of Watch Mr. Wizard. It became a hit, and for decades afterwards, Don Herbert was to educate children about the wonders of science through the venue of this show in its several manifestations on different networks. Utilizing imaginitive animated models, hands-on demonstrations, practical & creative experiments and many other thought-provoking devices to make Don's lessons both fun and easy-to-understand, this series has much to teach us today about engaging the kid in all of us in the continual love of learning.
