Seventies comedy/drama series that explain science at the end of each episode.

End seventies or start eighties tv show with teenagers and a little brother. Each episode ends with an explanation of the science they used. I think it also used the 'bad bad leroy brown'-song as a tv-theme (not sure).

One episode was with accidentally destroyed petri dishes. Another was with a missing rare coin.

EDIT: answer is ' The Edison twins'.

Thanks for your reply, not the right series though.
It really was a comedy/drama with (young) actors playing a role, and using (funny sciency) stuff to solve crime or something. And after the credits (or during?) they explained some basic physics or math that was used during that episode.
The two main actors were about 17-20 years old, and brother and sister (or maybe they were a couple). The girl for sure had a little 10 year old brother (who sometimes messed things up).
Yes 'the edison twins' thanks !!!
Hey, VHS, submit this as the official answer. Thanks.
