  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Based on educational software (sold directly to schools), Science Court was an Edutainment Show that premiered on ABC Kids One Saturday Morning in 1997. It used the animation style called Squiggle Vision and was made by the same guys that made Home Movies and Dr. Katz.

Every episode someone makes a frivolous lawsuit or criminal allegation against an innocent party, who would surely have never been in this mess if everyone understood Science! And so, with Science! on her side, defense lawyer Alison Krempel perennially defeats her ignorant nemesis Doug Savage with a roster of expert witnesses establishing that No, you cannot repair a snapped electric cord by tying the two halves together.

While the show technically ran for 3 seasons, the second was really just the first season presented in a revised format, adding a Teaser Opening and closing with bug-like hosts and a new segment in the middle called "See You Later, Estimator" hosted by the Science Court character Professor Parsons. (Some trimming was done to the rest of the program to accomodate these additions.) The third season also used this new format, but with new episodes instead of reruns.

Tropes used in Science Court include:
