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 »

They need to make more movies like this

What a refreshing movie and series this was. My girls loved it. We couldn't wait until the next episodes.

I wish there was a place to buy the TV series.

I rank this right along with "That Thing You Do". 10 for family entertainment.
