Did You Know?

Trivia:
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 »
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 »

Wonderful, Wonderful Show!, 1 December 2004
Author: Joey Schwartzman (Mastaclocksetta@aol.com) from Los Angeles, California, USA

I remember on a Saturday afternoon about 12 years ago I walked in on my mom watching this show in her bedroom, then I started watching it with her. That's how my little "Small Wonder craze," if you will, began. I remember that in 1992 and '93 KTTV Channel 11 (my local Fox affiliate) aired two episodes Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 and 2:30. Then in about '94, they started showing it Monday through Friday afternoons at 1:30, then started airing it at 1:00 AND 1:30 all year round. In '95 and '96 they only showed it in the summer at 1:00 and 1:30 PM. Then after that, they yanked (stopped showing) it :'(, and I have been mad at them ever since. But I saw in another message board that this winter KDOC Channel 56 (another station in my area) would pick up the show. I'm keeping my fingers crossed :D.

Anyway, I liked this show because of only one thing: Vicki the Robot! I had a ***HUGE*** crush on her/it. I would (and still sometimes do) dream about her/it. My mom told me today that that was just part of being a little kid.

I guess it is no Small Wonder that said Fox affiliate stopped showing this wonderful, wonderful show. I guess maybe they figured that people were just plain tired of seeing the same 96 episodes over and over.
