One of the best examples of the kids' ScienceShow genre from the [[TheNineties 1990s]]. The show lasted from 1993 to 1998, 5 seasons and 100 episodes. Each episode is centered on an area of scientific study, varying in level of focus from a single concept to an entire discipline. The show's eponymous host, dressed like a cross between a MadScientist and a birthday party magician, would teach the subject with a genuine level of excitement and interest most men reserve for the SuperBowl.

** One of the song parodies, "Science in Music, Oh Yeah!", was based on the song "Time Warp" from ''Film/RockyHorrorPictureShow''. There's a pretty slim chance his demographic would have seen the source material, so it's safe to assume that the cover was just for the parents' sake. Then there's the notorious "Let's Talk About Stress", which is a filk of ''Salt-N-Peppa's'' "Let's Talk About Sex". Again, the source material only plays on adult stations, so it's unlikely that the target demographic would've heard the original.

This show ran on PBS in the mid-1990s, and also in syndication (Disney co-produced the show with Seattle's PBS station KCTS). It then retired to Noggin and stayed until Noggin was merged into Nick Jr. However, Bill Nye is still on TV. He has a series of specials called ''The Eyes of Nye'', which are much closer in form to a TVDocumentary series (like ''Series/{{Nova}}'') than his previous show. Today, he's an outspoken environmental activist. His series on Planet Green, ''Stuff Happens'', is a show about the unintended environmental consequences of the stuff we do and use. He also occasionally guest-stars on the reality show ''Living With Ed''; he's really Ed Begley Jr.'s neighbor, within a few miles, and the two have an ongoing rivalry to "out-green" each other. Bill Nye is also the go-to guy to explain interesting science stories on Cable news Outlets Creator/{{CNN}} and {{MSNBC}}.

As it ran during the same stretch as ''BeakmansWorld'', the two shows get [[DuelingShows compared often,]] though ''Beakman's World'' tended to leer more on other aspects of knowledge than simply on science, and Bill Nye often explored subjects that had scientific reasoning behind it (such as populations, communication, probability and odds, and music) more than ''Beakman's World'' did.
