We love the nerdy gang from The Big Bang Theory, and Penny too; so for Wicked Wednesday we’re taking a look at the geeks and gal that have made us laugh and learn for nine seasons.
Jim Parsons has never watched "Star Trek" or "Doctor Who", even though his character, Sheldon, is obsessed with the shows.
David Saltzberg is the show’s official science advisor. He helps with the technical aspects of the scripts, and attends recordings in case there are any questions.
In the ‘90s Kaley Cuoco played a young Ellen in Ellen DeGeneres’ TV show "Ellen".
Brazilian biologist Andre Nemesio named a species of bee Euglossa bazinga after Sheldon's catchphrase “bazinga”.
"Soft Kitty" is a real song. It’s based on a 19th century Polish song.
Raj’s dilemma of being unable to speak to women unless he’s drunk was based on executive producer Bill Prady, who faced the same problem.
The show’s working title was "Lenny, Penny and Kenny".
Scientists who are fans of the show, pitch their latest results in the hope of having it appear on the characters’ whiteboards.
The show had two pilots. The first one had a different theme song, and two female leads, neither of whom was played by Cuoco.
On set, scenes between Penny and Sheldon are called “Peldon" or “Shenny" scenes.
