* BowtiesAreCool: He may not be [[Series/DoctorWho a doctor]] (although the honorary doctorates might say otherwise), but he's still a TropeCodifier!

Added DiffLines:

* EqualOpportunityOffender: If you're a hippie, an astrologer, a talk show host, a politician, a student, a teacher, or a parent, there's a chance you'll see somebody on ''The Eyes of Nye'' portraying your particular group in an unflattering light.

The show was hosted by [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Bill Nye, a science guy,]] comedian and former Boeing engineer who got his start in television on the UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} local comedy show ''Series/AlmostLive'' (where he got the "[[AppropriatedAppellation Science Guy]]" epithet after correcting the host's pronunciation of [[Film/BackToTheFuture Gigawatt]]) before starting his Creator/{{PBS}} show in 1993. (He also made several appearances on Disney shows prior to this, specifically the new version of Series/TheMickeyMouseClub. Fitting, as this was produced by Disney.) Although not technically a "scientist" in the sense of being a [=PhD=] with a particular specialty, Bill Nye holds patents for things ranging from jet engine components to ballet shoes, explains scientific concepts both accurately and clearly,[[note]]though some of it now subject to ScienceMarchesOn, of course[[/note]] and each show featured a professor in whatever topic was being discussed that week in the "Way Cool Scientist" segment, which allowed those researchers to explain their topic from the laboratory or the field.

field. With 90's kids now in college and graduate school, it's relatively common to find science majors, Masters students, and [=PhD=] students who point to Bill Nye as an inspiration for their interest in becoming scientists themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiNihilist: Bill Nye is a humanist who believes that death is a complete Cessation of Existence, but while we're here, "We can...dare I say it... change the WORLD!"


Added DiffLines:

* ThinkOfTheChildren: Bill has said in many panel debates that most (but not all) Generation Y and Millenials have been lost to religious radical movements and science denial, and that the children of these generations are the only hope for humanity's future. This is why he made ''The Science Guy'' and ''The Eyes of Nye''.
