Who Would Win in a Fight?

By Steve Brian, August 21, 2019

Bill Nye the Science Guy or Mr. Wizard?

My money’s on Bill Nye — not entirely because Mr. Wizard shuffled off this mortal coil a while ago. But pound for pound, Nye’s science has the better kung fu. While Mr. Wizard was the king of the hill for a long time, even in his science prime, Bill Nye has the advantage of the future in his corner. He benefits from advances that Mr. Wizard could never have had. Wizard’s punching analog in a digital world. So Nye moves on to the next round.

How about Beakman from Beakman’s World versus Sid the Science Kid?

This one gets a little harder to call. On the one hand, like Bill Nye, Sid the Science Kid is more recent and so can call upon a science more evolved than Beakman’s by a decade or more. But he is after all, a kid. And an animated one at that. Not to say that Beakman wasn’t pretty animated himself, but more in a full-of-character, hyper-expressive way—Sid’s a cartoon! So being imaginary does tend to weight these scales against him. But then again, on the other, other hand, Beakman was a fictional character too. Though played by a real human—he was an actor, so who knows how potent his science actually was.

This one’s a draw—mostly because whoever might win this semi-final match is still an imaginary character going head-to-head with a very real Bill Nye, himself an actual science guy.

So Bill Nye the Science Guy takes the top-spot of this un-scientific grudge match—this Thunderdome of TV Science supremacy.

For local fun scientists, try Mad Science for some experimental infotainment.
