Beakman’s World is an educational children’s television show that was based on the Universal Press Syndicate syndicated comic strip You Can With Beakman and Jax created by Jok Church. The series premiered September 18, 1992 on The Learning Channel (TLC – back when you could actually LEARN something from watching it) cable network and in national syndication (225 stations, a freshman year record). On September 18, 1993 it moved from national syndication to CBS Saturday morning children’s lineup. At the peak of its popularity, it was seen in nearly 90 countries around the world. The series was canceled in mid-1998. Reruns returned to national syndication in September 2006, after which it was transferred to local stations such as KICU. The show debuted a year prior to Bill Nye the Science Guy, which covered similar topics. The show’s host, Paul Zaloom, still performs as Beakman in live appearances around the globe.

  3. I think in a lot of ways. Bill Nye’s was an updated Mr. Wizard. Although I loved the wiz in his time it was too boring to catch most peoples attention. Beakman’s world I could actually watch with my little brother without him complaining.

  5. Ok, only had to go through the first “experiment” to know who’s better. The card is not held by “air preassure.” The preassure of the water is many times greater than that of the air. The card is held in place by adhesion. The force of the water molecules hydrogen bonding with the slick epidermis of the card is greater than the force of gravity. Bill Nye tought me that!!! (Not to mention he helped me pass my 5th grade TAKS*!!)
