“Bill Nye the Science Guy” first aired on PBS Kids between 1993 and 1998. Currently, 30 episodes of the show -- out of 100 -- are available online. Episodes include “Gravity,” “Digestion” and “Pollution Solutions.”
As The Daily Dot points out, some of the science covered in the show is now outdated. For instance, Pluto is no longer a planet (thanks in part to Nye's friend and collaborator Neil de Grasse Tyson); and the human genome had yet to be mapped.
Still, Nye’s show remains informative and fun -- and it’ll certainly suffuse you with plenty of nostalgia.
