These “Bill Nye the Science Guy” Memes Are Everything

September 17, 2020 • Devin Partida


If you grew up in the 1990s, you’re familiar with “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” Nye is an educator and mechanical engineer who created a series of science-based educational shows under the same name that aired between 1993 and 1998. This show won 19 Emmy Awards and taught an entire generation of children to view science as something fun. 

Nye also made headlines in 2017 when he released “Bill Nye Saves the World,” a more adult version of his classic science show that addressed modern scientific and environmental issues. He’s an icon for ’90s kids and has been part of our lives since childhood — which is why these “Bill Nye the Science Guy” memes are everything. 

1. The Planet’s on F****** Fire

We all grew up with Bill Nye telling us how to save the planet — and then we ignored him. Now, the science guy has had enough. As this meme explains, Nye raised us better, and now he’s pissed. 

2. The Most Ambitious Crossover Ever

“Avengers: Infinity War” blew our minds by bringing all our favorite characters together on one screen, but it isn’t the only crossover we enjoyed as children. Look back at one of our first crossovers, when Bill Nye took a trip to “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.” 

3. Some Men Just Want to Watch the World Learn

Some men just want to watch the world burn, but not Bill Nye. When it comes down to it, all he wants to do is watch the world learn, and that is a noble endeavor.

4. Consider the Following

We need to start listening to the people telling us we can do things to save the world. When we were kids, Nye would be nice and ask us to consider the following. Now, with no one listening to the things he has to say, Bill is a little less polite. 

5. I Made Bow Ties Cool

The Eleventh Doctor might have been a fan of bow ties, but he’s got nothing on Bill Nye, who’s been wearing them with his snazzy lab coats for decades. 

6. What’s the Matter, Bill?

Ba-dum-tssss. Leave it to Bill Nye to introduce ’90s kids to science and puns. 

7. If I Agreed With You …

If you need the best reaction image ever for dealing with argumentative family members on the internet, look no further than Bill Nye and this fantastic meme.

8. Bill Nye to the Rescue

There was nothing better for the ’90s kids than seeing them roll the TV cart into the classroom at the start of the lesson. While we never noticed it at the time, we’re pretty sure Bill Nye rescued more than one hungover teacher from embarrassment. 

9. Bill Nye the … Super Villain?

“Bill Nye the Science Guy” isn’t playing anymore, and at least one internet user believes he has an entirely valid supervillain origin story. Honestly, we would pay to see him taking out billionaires with fourth-grade science fair experiments. 

10. Be Like Bill

There are so many differing opinions on the internet these days that it can be difficult to know what’s right and what isn’t. Instead of sticking to your guns, be like Bill. Be willing to examine the evidence and change your opinion if you’re proven wrong.

11. Burn!

You’ll need some aloe for that periodic burn.

12. Measure It in Kelvin

Bill Nye often rubs elbows with some the finest scientific minds of our time, and someone thought it would be a good idea to put him in an image with Steven Hawking and Niel deGrasse Tyson. It looks like the worlds most epic album cover.

13. Yo Mama Jokes Are Always Funny

Presented without comment.

14. Don’t Argue With the Science Guy

Don’t argue with the man who’s dedicated his life to teaching science to the masses, especially when your argument isn’t based on quantifiable evidence.

15. Do You Even Science, Bro?

Well, do you?
