Eureka! (1981)

Show Summary

Eureka! (or, for French audiences, Eurêka!), was a cleverly-designed set of cartoons intended to teach physics. A total of 30 adventures surrounded a clever, long-nosed man in a white suit and distinctive hat. The narrator, played by the late Billy Van, taught this man principles of physics, ranging from mechanics to heat and temperature. Among the awards Eureka! has received: Ø Best Science & Math Video, Birmingham International Educational Film Festival Ø GOLD PLAQUE, American Film Festival Ø NAEB Graphic & Design Award TVO still provides videotapes of Eureka! for school audiences. It is their tribute to the people who made it work: David Stansfield, Denise Boiteau, and the late Billy Van.

  • Very good for young children. Inspires interest in science.

    This was a very good show to grow up with as a kid. It was one of my favorites, and I was always disappointed they didn't produce more. Billy Van did a great job with voices and the cute little sound effects. It was great to grow up with such quality programming which could teach a young kid something meaningful, and still be entertaining. It was Eureka! that inspired in me a love of physics and science. I only wish that it could have continued to inspire more young children, but it has died too young a death. Thank you, Eureka!moreless
