Storyline

Sitcom about the antics between two twins, Kate and Allison (played by real life twins Liz and Jean Segal). Allison was always the serious outgoing sister, while Kate was more fun and laid-back. In the first season, the twins lived in Des Moines with the father Art, who ran a health club/dance studio. In the second season, the twins headed to New York City to live with their aunt Margo (who wrote children's books). Allison enrolls in design school trying to win points from hard-to-impress Mr. Arrechia, while Kate tries to break into acting. Written by Pat McCurry <laraspal00@aol.com>

Great TV show that ended so sadly
21 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show! i watched it all the time it was on. i must have been about 8 years old,and from then watched it as it went on to cable as a rerun. I got the chance to tape a few episodes on my VHS,but since it was so long ago i can't find em. can anybody help with getting the complete shows on DVD or video. really that was a AWESOME show!I named my 2nd daughter Allison just like the character..ha ha so funny.and me too also wanted a twin sister. mainly because i was an only child.and when they went off to New York it was even more fun with Bongo Bear and the 2 funny guys! hahahaha! not to mention the aunt who always had her words of wisdom...that Kate hardley ever followed! please contact me if anybody has info on getting the tapes.
