    On Ellen's Energy Adventure, does everyone know who Bill Nye is?



    I grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy in school and I absolutely love his show. Even if it came on tv today I would still watch it, but I am wondering if everyone knows who he is. Do foreigners watch his show? And what about kids nowadays? People know who Ellen is from Finding Nemo and from her show, but it seems like eventually someone isnt going to know who bill Nye is, sadly.

    Im 25 years old and I grew up watching him also. I'm a 6th grade teacher and they don't know who he is. I always loved his show!

    Bill Nye had a great show. He was sortof the young hip version of Mr. Wizard in the 90s.

    I loved him so much, my home wifi is called Bill Wi the Science Fi (no joke)

    Bill Nye is awesome! I loved his show. He was amazing at explaining all kinds of science topics and he made it fun and easy for kids to understand. I often wish I could show his shows to my students.

    I love Bill Nye. His show was everywhere growing up. On television and used a lot in school too. Does anyone know where you could find old episodes? Are they on Netflix or anything like that?

    I am an 80s baby and I grew up with Bill Nye at home and school. I just checked Hulu & Netflix and I couldn't find him.

    I'm from the UK and hadn't heard of him until the ride. Although yesterday I renamed my WiFi network 'Bill Wi the Science Fi'.

    I'm from Mexico, and I did know who he was! most of my family didn't (not all speak english and my elder brothers are five and six years older than me). Neither did my husband, but then again his family didn't watch tv when they were little. I love him!
