Beakman to Bill Nye

I GOT YOUR BACK

... Sorta

Apparently, TV scientists stick together like H2 and O (covalent bond joke!) ... 'cause TMZ has learned Beakman (from "Beakman's World") is rooting for Bill Nye on "Dancing with the Stars."

... sorta.

We spoke with Paul Zaloom a.k.a. Beakman  ... who tell us he's fired up for his fellow oddball science educator saying, "I hope Bill reps for scientists and shows everyone we can shake our booties too!"

Now for the "sorta" part ... Beakman says he doesn't watch broadcast television ... so he won't actually tune in when Nye hits the dance floor.

As for Mr. Wizard, it's unclear who he's rooting for ... because he died in 2007.

OMG! I forgot all about Mr. Wizard. I loved that show. Those were the days. None of that crappy cartoon stuff back then. Mr. Wizards World, You Can't Do That on Television, Double Dare, and Finders Keepers. They just don't make em like they used to.

I was psyched to learn that the guy that played the rat on Beekman was the creator of "For the Love of Fred", a kids puppet special from decades ago. The show has fallen into oblivion, but I would kill to see a copy of it.
