When Vicki "jumpstarted Grandpa" via the defibrillator to restart his heart, Jamie asks where she leaned that, she replies "Trapper John". Jerry Supiran guest starred in the 'Send In the Clowns" episode of Trapper John, M.D. (1979) as Matthew Riley. See more »
Despite being "made of plastic, microchips here and there", the robot and her costume grew from season to season to accommodative the actress. However, in the season 4 episode "School Monitor", there was an explanation given by the father, who put in a special chip that enabled her to grow to avoid suspicion from friends and neighbors why she never grew and remained the same age.

I'm SHOCKED to see ANYONE giving this garbage anything more than 1 star.
I'm DOUBLY shocked to see people who were saying things like (paraphrasing) 'great 80's nostalgia.' one person said it was the show was 'innocent and wholesome.'
There are MANY things that could be classified as 'nostalgic,' but, I doubt anyone would want back because of that moniker (anyone for WW2? Civil War? The Plague? Personally, this series is akin to those 'nostalgic' events).This series was TERRIBLE. The 'acting,' atrocious.
The main character - VICI - was played by a young girl named Tiffany Brissette (who, left acting - mercifully - for US!).
In child acting, the number of performers who can actually 'act,' (rather than getting by on 'cute') is very low.
Ms. Brissette was not alone in her (poor) style of acting; the grating Emily Schulman played Harriet - the 'nosy next-door' kid.
Like Ms. Brissette, Ms. Schulman also has left acting as well.
This was a syndicated series, which usually means a lower quality - both in terms of 'stars' that can be contracted (doing syndication work usually means lower pay scale), and the writing, and everything else.
Don't get me wrong: just because a show's made for syndication automatically means it's 'b' grade. There are many series that have proved that adage incorrect.
But, in this case, SMALL WONDER lives 'up' (down, is more accurate) to the stereotype of syndicated series.
