* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Name another kids show that can confront viewers fears about a scary environmental problem, in this case being ozone layer depletion, head on with understanding and balance with the empowering, "Let's turn that fear into knowledge!"
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Brazilians love Lester. The series as a whole was very popular in Mexico as well. In fact, Beakman is so beloved in both countries that he has done live performances for many years. A show at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in 2014 was attended by thousands of Mexican fans, with huge screens to supplement his stories and experiments.[[note]] And the original mexican dubber doing the voice live to boot! [[/note]]
** When Beakman explores how cars work, Lester states that they run off of explosions right off the bat. Josie tries to silence him, saying that the viewers won't bother to watch if they already know the answer, but Lester replies that they'll tune in to watch [[StuffBlowingUp explosions.]] Fast forward to a certain ''[[Series/MythBusters other]]'' EdutainmentShow. ...and of course, one segment was completely ''about'' explosions...and then there was a third that was all about dynamite...cue even ''more'' explosions.
** Also the fact that there was an occasional segment actually ''called'' Mythbusters, which would point out common misconceptions, such as how pencils are often stated to write with lead, when they actually use graphite.
* ReplacementScrappy: Josie is ''always'' the most-liked assistant in fan polls; Phoebe is ''always'' the least-liked because Phoebe is less friendly towards Lester, and that she had a tendency to be a [[DeadpanSnarker smart-aleck.]] So is Liza on occassion.
* UncannyValley: She may appear different in the actual show, but look at [[http://www.sonypictures.com/tv/kids/beakmansworld/ this promotional picture]]: WHAT IS THAT CREATURE on the right? Some kind of "adult-child hybrid"?
