Neil deGrasse Tyson, Eminent Cartoon

He’s a world-renowned astrophysicist. He’s a radio show host. He’s been on all sorts of TV shows, including hosting PBS’ NOVA ScienceNOW and a memorable guest shot on The Big Bang Theory. He’s even been on the Nerdist Podcast, and he has a video version of his Star Talk show coming to the Nerdist Channel. But one thing Neil deGrasse Tyson has not been to date is a cartoon character.

We can scratch that off his bucket list: Here’s the cartoon Dr. Tyson on an episode of PBS Kids’ Martha Speaks:

The episode airs on July 15th; Check, as they say, your local listings. Oh, and Martha’s a talking dog, in case you were wondering about that.
