Young Sheldon Explains Why Sheldon Mocks Howard So Much In The Big Bang Theory

provides additional context as to why Sheldon loved to mock Howard in . Despite the main CBS sitcom ending in 2019, the socially-inept genius' story continues through the prequel series, which chronicles his years living with his family in Medford, Texas. Now in its fourth season, the series tackles Sheldon's first year at East Texas Tech.

While qualifying to go to college at an early age was easy for Sheldon, taking the opportunity was not easy. Mary was hesitant about the idea despite prestigious universities like Princeton and CalTech expressing their interest to take in her son. After coming up with a compromise to go to a smaller but closer school like East Texas Tech, the Cooper matriarch eventually agreed.

Despite compared to his friends in , he lorded over them; not missing any opportunity to boast about his superior IQ. He was particularly mean to Howard, however; aside from being the only one from his group of friends who doesn't have a doctorate bar Penny, Sheldon also liked to look down on his profession as an engineer.

 season 4, episode 10, "Cowboy Aerobics and 473 Grease-Free Bolts" provides additional context on exactly why Sheldon dislikes engineers. After practically begging to be Dr. Linkletter's lab assistant, the young genius was excited about actually helping the professor with his theories.

He demeaned Howard's  by calling it a even though this creation proved to be useful, granted some minor issues that were eventually resolved. Despite not being a physicist and being subjected to Sheldon's endless insults, among his genius friends, ; he visited the International Space Station as a Payload Specialist on Expedition 31. By the time Howard came back home, Sheldon, who was secretly envious of the experience, also made the same comparison he made in , saying that, like Howard, monkeys also went to space.

Over the years, however, Sheldon and Howard eventually found ways to genuinely get along with each other.

While Sheldon continued to have tendencies to look down on him, it wasn't as bad as it was before. Howard, for his part, learned to block out his insults, much like Penny did when Sheldon mercilessly mocked his career, intellect, and even personal relationships. What's interesting is, if CBS wants like , they might want to do a prequel off-shoot with Howard given his equally fascinating childhood.
