Science Show
Shows that attempt to teach valuable science lessons in the basic format of a Saturday Morning Kids Show or Sketch Comedy. Usually, each episode is focused on a specific field. The host of such a show is often an endearing Mad Scientist type in a lab coat.

Very common in The Eighties, when making educational programs had major benefits under Reagan administration policy. (See And Knowing Is Half the Battle.)

The Edutainment Show is its parent trope, the Experiment Show is a common form of it.
