Trivia:
Candace Cameron Bure, Taylor Neff and Heather O'Rourke all auditioned for the role of Vicki.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: 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.See more »

great show!, 19 October 2001
Author: bluemagic25 from s.e.asia

I just remembered this show today and forgot who acted in it..so here i am! I just had to read the other comments which cracked me up...especially those who thought Viki was so scary, Jamie's cheeks were too shiny, and were left emotionally scarred by Harriet. I mean, come on! Its just a show, not a physics test, no need to analyze!...yes--it has its flaws but just sit back with an open mind and you might find yourself smiling once in awhile.. And I always loved it...I remember when my sibs and cousins would sing the theme sing "she's a small wonder, lovely and bright with soft curls" something like that. Really, people just watch it for some clean fun. Maybe it doesn't have the drama people love nowadays, but it's good to think back on the simple life. So watch and relax!
