One of the pioneers of children’s television, Jules Power, who co-produced NBC’s "Mr. Wizard" in 1951, died in Baltimore on Friday, October 9, according to the New York Times.

He succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to his work on the Peabody-award winning "Mr. Wizard," Power also helmed ABC’s “Discovery” in 1961, and later in 1977, began "Over Easy" on PBS with Hugh Downs and Richard Rector.
