From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ask Dr. Science is a daily humorous radio sketch produced by the comedy troupe Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre. It is broadcast on many public radio stations, using a format that mixes elements of a commercial bumper and a public service announcement. A concerned citizen asks a question, which is answered by an expert, "Dr. Science." Not surprisingly, the questions are never answered correctly, and often are little more than a launching point for a non sequitur monologue from Dr. Science. The show's motto is "He knows more than you do." The sketch always concludes with the disclaimer that he is "not a real doctor," although Dr. Science insists he has "a Masters Degree... in science!"

The program features two Duck's Breath members: Dan Coffey as Dr. Science and Merle Kessler as his assistant/announcer Rodney.

In the segment's earliest days, it was known as "Ask Mr. Science."

Other media

In 1987, there was a Dr. Science television series on the Fox network that starred all 5 members of the Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre, as well as Denny Dillon. It ran for about 12 episodes.

During the early 2000s, the Warner Bros. website Entertaindom aired a series of CG animated shorts featuring popular clips from the Ask Dr. Science radio broadcasts.

In The Ren & Stimpy Show, there were two shorts called 'Ask Dr.Stupid'
