Bunsen & Beaker Named Top Scientists

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and BeakerThe Muppets’ Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant Beaker trounced Dr. Spock from Star Trek, Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to the Future and Q from James Bond to be voted Britain’s favorite screen scientists. The explosive pair won by a 2-to-1 margin, defeating Spock in second place and The Doctor from Dr. Who.

“They are accessible, humorous and occasionally blow each other up,” said Roland Jackson, of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BA).

“They’re the kind of scientists you would like to be but never quite dared to,” said Alan Slater, a scientist at the University of Exeter in southwestern England.

  1. It’s been a long time coming! Hopefully they’ll get some prize money to put towards Beaker’s undoubtedly huge medical bills.
