Robinson Peepers was a shy, quiet, slow-moving science teacher at Jefferson Junior High whose efforts to do the right thing always seemed to backfire. His antics with his best friend and fellow teacher, Harvey Weskitt and the school nurse, Nancy Remington made this classic 50s TV series a hit with the nation. Mr. Peepers appeared laughable, easily bullied, baffled and befuddled by the other teachers and life in general yet he quietly displayed the strength and conviction that ensured his life was fulfilled. An every-day hero in a crazy world, he displayed the virtues of putting the interests of others before his own, genuinely caring about his students and those around him.
