For the newer generations, Beakman's World is once a popular children's show about an eccentric scientist doing comical yet factual experimentations and demonstrations in response to the viewers mail. The show has been popular to professors, children, and students due to the shows bizarre, hilarious, and effective ways of explaining what other calls "boring" elements of science as a subject.

What made The Beakman's World phenomenal are the shows' characters and how they are portrayed in the show. From two penguins watching the show; a sarcastic and skeptical and sometimes rude guy in a rat suit; a lovely pretty assistant; to a scientist who always shouts "Zaloom" are the major characters seen throughout the rest of this educational show.
