Trivia

Although networks loved the pilot episode, executives feared there were just too many children in the cast. Thus, the character of Nina played by Heather McAdam was written out of the series by having her reunited with her birth mother. See more »

Goofs

Though the series is set in the year 1961, much of the clothes and accessories worn by the characters are clearly from the 1980s. See more »

clever!
27 August 2012 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This show was a clever mix of comedy, drama, and music. It featured a cutthroat food mogul who adopted five orphaned girls in an attempt to seal a deal and improve his image. Of course, the girls changed his life, and he changed theirs. The girls would frequently engage in song to reflect the story of the episode. I loved the one where a guy tried to scam a girl who had just gotten her drivers' liscence, or where a Russian guy was over, or where the girl had her "Sweet 16" at the same time the Cuban Missile Crisis Hit. (the show was set in the early 60s.) This was a thoroughly enjoyable show with cute girls, good episodes, and an ensemble that clicked! Joeseph Bologna was good in the lead.

*** out of ****
