Don't tell the health and safety people but mad Muppets have recently topped a cult science poll. Dr Bunsen Honeydew and his trusty assistant, Beaker, received a third of the votes to become the UK's favourite cult TV boffins.

They easily beat Star Trek's Mr Spock and Dr Who's Time Lord in a fun survey to mark the British Association's Festival of Science in Exeter.

Neither Dr Honeydew nor Beaker were immediately available for comment but their good friend Kermit the frog was quoted as saying: 'They have spread the message that science is not just for short round-headed bald guys and their orange-haired goggle-eyed sidekicks. It's also for people like you and frogs like me.'

Dr Honeydew is known the world over for his disastrous research at Muppet Labs. His experiments invariably go awry, with poor old Beaker usually being blown to bits or electrocuted.


1. Dr Honeydew and Beaker (The Muppets) — 33%

2. Mr Spock (Star Trek) — 15%

3. The Doctor (Dr Who) — 13%

4. Q (James Bond) — 9%

5. Dr Emmett Brown (Back To The Future) — 8%

6. Dr Dana Scully (The X Files) —

7. Dr Strangelove — 5%

8. Frank 'N' Furter (Rocky Horror Picture Show) —

9. Dr Evil (Austin Powers) — 4%

10. Dr Frankenstein — 1%
