Bill Nye Reflects
On The Bill Nye
The Science Guy
Theme Song
By BRANDON ROWE
For most people familiar with the opening theme of "Bill Nye the Science Guy," all it takes is hearing the celebrity scientist's name for the infinitely catchy tune to stick in your head. During an interview to promote "The End Is Nye" at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Bill Nye looked back on the origins of the famous theme song and duly awarded credit where credit is due.
Although Nye reported that he had confidence that the theme would prove catchy to viewers at the time, he also admitted some initial hesitation toward one particular aspect of the show's opening segment. "At first, I was nervous with the lip syncing," he said, "but the guys and gal I work with — my producers, Jim [McKenna] and Erren [Gottlieb] — go, 'No, it's genius.'"
Nearly 30 years after its debut, people are still asking Nye questions about it, and he still seems eager to praise the ingenuity involved in its creation. "The song is really good on that show," Nye said. Of course, fans might understandably wonder if "The End Is Nye" will have a theme song of its own, and Nye confirmed that the new series will have a sound unique unto itself.
