Way back in the long ago time of the 1990s I was in college, and Beakman’s World ruled my Saturday morning television lineup. It was a fantastic show that was well produced, full of puny humor, and best of all it taught science in an entertaining and enjoy way.  The series was cancelled in 1998, and Pal Zaloom (aka Beakman) seemed to disappear into the night.

Until last week.

Captain Disillusion teams up with Beakman of ‘Beakman’s World’ to examine some free energy claims on YouTube, in the most ’90s way possible.

Granted, there was no Lester the Lab Rat, but this was an enjoyable episode. I would love to see more Beakman in the future if anyone wanted to make it happen.

    Sadly the actor who played Lester the rat passed away a few years back and without him I’m not sure it would be the same. However I too watched the show every Saturday morning and last year re watched it on Netflix and would love a revival of sorts
