Remembering the TV Show Small Wonder
Right now it is a cool, sunny day at my house, on a Saturday afternoon. I was thinking back to my childhood days and trying to remember what I use to do on my Saturday afternoons. Back then, we only had 1 day a week, where cartoons would come on television. If you didn’t get up on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons, you wouldn’t get a chance to see them again, until the next Saturday rolled around. So all kids would get out of bed on Saturdays to watch cartoons. Once the noon hour arrived on Saturday, most of the cartoons had ended for the day. Some TV stations would begin showing children’s programs, but they weren’t animated. Just your basic 30 minute sitcoms. Generally there wasn’t too many to watch, but if you got lucky, you might could see 2 or 3 of these non-animated programs for kids.
Remember this show? What about the show that featured a girl who was half human and half alien? She could freeze time, by putting her two fingers together. Did you ever see this one?
I remember a few of these shows back then. I know a TV show called Out of this World, was one of the shows you could catch on a Saturday afternoon, back in the 1980’s. The main girl in this show was named Evie and she had special powers and could stop time. It was a pretty popular show and found its way in the syndication network, where it got showed a lot and on different TV channels. Another show back in this time period was Small Wonder. For some reason, it never was as popular as the other children’s programs from the 80’s generation. I remembered this title “Small ‘Wonder” but couldn’t really remember what this TV show was about. So I started to look around online and now after refreshing my memory a bit, I clearly remember watching this TV show.
The TV show Small Wonder was based on a 10 year-old girl, who was really a robot. Her TV dad from the show worked at United Robotronics, a fictional company for the show. Vicki the robot was played by actress Tiffany Brissette. The dad was asked at work to bring the robot home and allow her to live with a real human family, in the hopes she would become more human. I was able to find a episode of Small Wonder online. I have them down below in two 10 minute segments, so you can see the full episode. You Tube only allows users to upload user generated material in 10 minute sections or less. So just start with part 1 and you can see the remainder of Small Wonder in the video labeled part 2 below. This episode of Small Wonder is called the Boss’s Daughter. Enjoy!
I had a good time watching this episode of Small Wonder. I believe the kids of today, would enjoy watching some of these classic TV shows from the earlier days. All of the kids now, who are 20 years-old or younger, has probably never seen Small Wonder or some of these other TV shows we use to watch growing up. TV Land on television does a good job at trying to air some of these classic TV programs. They might not always select the ones you want to watch or you have one that you can’t remember the name of.
Most adults have at least 1 program they remember watching as a kid, but have no idea what it was called. They can only remember small bits of information and would really like to know the title or be able to see it again. I would like to try and help others relive their childhoods, from TV shows they use to watch. If you would like to track down a TV show you use to watch on television as a kid, please leave a reply and I will try to help.
I am currently trying to learn all of the popular and not so popular programs; which use to come on TV. If you was watching TV in the 1970’s, 1080’s, or in the 1990’s as a kid, I might be able to help. As I become more familiar with a lot of these classic television shows, my memory will be more fresh than most. You may be able to give me a few simple hints and I might can name the show, without searching for any information on it. I do have a lot of ways of tracking down these older TV programs and I am trying to learn a few new tricks, so I can help others find their childhood memories, that they left with some TV show that they can’t name today.
What I need for you to do, is leave me as many clues as possible. Try to estimate the years, in which you was watching this TV show. Let me know if you remember the channel, like ABC, CBS, or NBC. We really only had 3 main TV stations back then, but for the newer shows of the 1990’s, giving me the channel or network can help a lot. Let me also know if you remember watching this show in the weekday mornings, afternoons, or nights. Or perhaps it was a weekend TV show and you can let me know it aired on a Saturday or Sunday and if it was at night or daytime. The geography is another good piece of information to tell me about. Remembering which state or what the weather conditions were like. Tell me about any character names or give character descriptions too. If you remember a certain scene, then try to write it out the best you can. You never know which clue will help me to identify your childhood TV show, so please leave all bits of information.
I will try to help each person who leaves a reply and gives me some clues to go on, about a TV show they use to watch growing up, but now have no idea what the name of it was. I’m here to help recover those lost childhood memories and I will do my best for each person. These childhood memories are important for us to remember and it can really be fun, when you finally get to solve a mystery from TV that has bugged you for all of these years. The only thing I need to do now on my end, is come up with a title for my position, of trying to help people remember their childhood memories.
Let me know if you like any of these titles:
A. The Classic TV Investigator?
B. The TV Memories Man?
C. The Childhood TV Memories Dude?
D. The TV Mystery Solver?
Feel free to help me come up with a title for the services I hope to provide to others. What are the services you’re providing? I am going to try and find out the name of classic TV show, in which a person can only remember small bits of information about. People that hope to solve their childhood TV mysteries from the 70’s, 80’s, or even the 90’s; just need to leave me with as many memories or details they can, about these TV shows that don’t come on television anymore. After you leave me everything you know. I will go out and use a variety of different tactics and tools I have access to, so I can come back and tell a person the name of their TV show, provide some information about it, and possibly may be able to dig up a clip, from an old episode, so I can show these people the show they use to like watching as a kid. So if you are ready to solve your childhood TV memories, just leave a reply here and I will get the ball rolling. Please be sure to leave your correct email address; when you leave a reply, so I can ask you questions or seek more information, if I run into any barriers or problems. The more I continue to do this, the more I will learn about classic TV programs, so in some cases, just 1 small clue might be enough for me to solve your TV mystery.Click here for reuse options!
