** One of the song parodies, "Science in Music, Oh Yeah!", was of "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, in almost every episode, they'd take a well-known song (usually AlternativeRock), cut the song length in half, then replace the lyrics with [[EducationalSong lyrics related to the show's topic]]. And a guy on Website/YouTube uploaded [[http://www.youtube.com/user/NyeTunes every single one of them]]. On three occasions, actual rock artists did the song: Chris Ballew of Music/ThePresidentsOfTheUnitedStatesOfAmerica did a parody of his band's hit "Peaches", ThePosies reworked their song "Flavor of the Month" with lyrics about ocean exploration, and grunge rockers {{Mudhoney}} did a cover of the show's theme song.

**If Bill Nye mentions anything involving water ANYTHING, a stage hand with a bucket full of water flings the water at him, it's so bad that Bill is ''aware'' of it and tries to substitute the chemical formula each time, until he slips up at the end and gets drenched with at least ten buckets of water.

This show ran on PBS in the mid-1990s, but then somehow hopped to Disney in the early 2000s. 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}}.
