I remember this show too!
28 April 2001 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show at my babysitter's house when I was three or four years old, and I loved it, too. I had a crush on Kyle Richards (she was a real cutie!) even though I did not know who she was at that time. I also got a big kick out of the theme song; and every once in a while, I would sing it to myself. My parents would hear me sing it, and I am pretty sure that they thought I was cracking up. I know for a fact that they did not know what the hell I was singing because they had never seen or even heard of this show!

It would be terrific if TBS or some other channel began showing reruns of this show. I would really love to see it again!
