No, Mr. Wizard was the guy who had about 5-6 different
kids in the neighborhood that would "assist" him in
various experiments. I always wondered "who is this guy?"
and "what are these kids doing hanging around at Mr.
Wizard's house all the time?" The show I'm thinking of
may have been a local PBS show (Pittsburgh.) The host
of the show was a guy maybe in his 60's or 70's with
wild, unkempt hair and black horn-rimmed glasses, perhaps.
It seemed like he was always in a bad mood (he was
probably a retired college prof.) He reminded me of the
crazy doctor in "The Cannonball Run."
