Bill Nye the Science Guy was an Emmy Award-winning educational television program, hosted by Bill Nye. It was originally broadcast on PBS from 1992 to 1998 and is currently syndicated. Each episode aimed to teach a specific topic in science to a preteen audience.
The Bill Nye fad was popular early on in 2004. The main fad just involved the theme song being clipped into other sound clips (e.g., I believe you have my "Bill Nye"). Most sites contains the popular theme song to the show (the song was included on Volume 1 of the YTMND Soundtrack).
In December 2005, the user JBOD created a site that had the "Most Annoying Bill Nye Loop Ever". The loop had the "Bill Bill Bill Bill" portion repeated endlessly in a loop. The site was popular and spawned a sub-fad, where the loop would accompany pictures of utility bills and congressional bills.
The song is also part of the Snoop Nye the Slam Guy fad.
In the early history of the PTKFGS universe, Bill Nye, being one of the earliest ytmnd fads, was replaced with " ," a similar educational children's show about an eccentric scientist that also ran from 1992 to 1998, and covered many of the same topics as Bill Nye The Science Guy.
