Some enterprising YouTuber compiled this brilliant supercut of adorable, curmudgeonly Mr. Wizard — aka Don Herbert — being a total dick to kids. Don’t ask me how he got access to all the footage, or how many hours it must have taken to edit together this out-of-context quotes, but huge props to whoever did it for livening up a slow news day.

Who else conflated Mr. Wizard with Conrad Bain in the addled adolescent mind?

RIP, Mr. Wizard. Thanks for helping to pass countless summer hours during my youth.
