Illustration of Frankenstein crossed with Albert Einstein

Answer: Frank Einstein

Albert Einstein is one of our favorite pun characters. He was amazingly humble and humorous for someone so brilliant, and seems like the perfect person to teach kids about to get them interested in science. Einstein also has many iconic photos of his wild white hair and even him sticking out his tongue.

Explanation for the kids (and bad puns)

This one doesn't need much explanation as you just need to add the letter "i" to Frankenstein. There are some other interesting parallels though if you look a little deeper. Dr. Frankeinstein was a brilliant, though misguided, scientist who went too far when creating his monster. Einstein's own monster was the atomic bomb.

Einstein was originally in favor of building the bomb and signed a letter to President Roosevelt recommending building it before the Germans. However he thought it would only be used as a deterrent and condemned the use of it on Hiroshima.
