After finding out here that Bill Nye the Science Guy is on Netflix, I started to wonder if the other great early-90s Saturday Morning science show Beakman’s World was as well.
Sadly it isn’t, but it did get me on a wiki-binge about the series and that’s when I read this about Paul Zaloom - the comedian who plays Beakman:
His personal politics are liberal; he has referred to Elizabeth Dole and Margaret Thatcher as “right-wing nutjobs”. He has also been a fierce critic of U.S. foreign policy since the early 1980s, having helped to lead a disarmament march during the Cold War.
So that’s why my generation is so weird - our education influences such Bill Nye and Beakman were liberals who obviously slipped in their propaganda to warp our young minds.
acabei de perceber que nunca postei ou rebloguei uma foto do beakman. pois, então, aí está, o herói da imensa maioria das crianças dos anos 90; um herói meu até hoje, um modelo de educador e professor, um ídolo.
