Beakman
Claim to fame: Paul Zaloom played the irreverent, wacky, brilliant Beakman on the science-oriented kids show Beakman’s World in the 90s. Zaloom’s bizarre appearance and brilliant comic timing turned each episode into an amazing learning experience that combined equal parts Albert Einstein and Groucho Marx. Zaloom occasionally reprises his Beakman role in a touring demontration called Beakman Live!

He is also a talented artist whose work has been displayed at the prestigious Kennedy Centerin Washington DC. He has also taught puppetry and performance art at schools around the country.

I still watch reruns of Beakman's World. I thought the show was brilliant and he was amazing in how he taught science. I'm so grateful for the reruns but I wish he would come back and continue the show. It's so much more intriguing and engaging then shows that followed his. All the others pale in comparison. I thank Mr. Zaloom for his brilliance. If I were a science teacher I would show his programs at least once a week in my classes. But I'm not. But I make the effort to get up every Sunday morning not to miss his reruns. Bring back Beakman!!!!!!!
