Who doesn’t love when Bob Newhart pops up on the small screen? As we reported in early October, Newhart will be making his triumphant return as Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) childhood hero Professor Proton on ‘The Big Bang Theory.’
In the upcoming episode, titled “The Proton Displacement,” Sheldon becomes slighted and hurt when Professor Proton goes to Leonard (Johnny Galecki) for advice on an experiment. As we all know, Sheldon will go to extremes to seek his revenge. What better way to do just that than by enlisting rival science TV host Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’?
I can only imagine what kind of shenanigans Sheldon will get into, especially with Bill Nye. Sadly, we’ll have to wait until the episode airs, but here are a few photos from the future episode that will hopefully whet your appetite.
As you can see below, Leonard, Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Sheldon admire Professor Proton, Leonard and Professor Proton work on an elaborate science experiment, and Sheldon glares at Bill Nye, Leonard and the great Professor Proton. Check out the photos for yourself!
Are you excited to see acting legend Newhart (who finally won his first Emmy for his performance as Professor Proton) and Bill Nye on ‘The Big Bang Theory’?
Newhart’s episode airs Thursday, Nov. 7 at 8/7c on CBS.
